Arsenal vs Olympiakos Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


Arsenal should have too much quality for Olympiakos in their UEFA Europa League round of 32 second leg fixture at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners are in good form and backed to do the double over the Greek club on Thursday.

Arsenal Form


Arsenal earned a 1-0 victory in the first leg in Greece with Alexandre Lacazette getting the only goal. They followed it up with a 3-2 Premier League victory over Everton with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netting a brace after Eddie Nketiah struck the opener.

The Gunners are returning to their best as they head into Thursday’s match with four wins and a draw in their last five matches. Mikel Arteta’s have also impressed going forward, scoring four goals in a Premier League victory over Newcastle before putting three past Everton on Sunday.

One player who is finding his feet again is Alexandre Lacazette. The French striker went on a lengthy goal drought but has now scored in his last two appearances for Arsenal.

Olympiakos Form


Olympiakos suffered a 1-0 home loss to Arsenal in the first leg. They made a swift return to winning ways on Sunday as they claimed a 1-0 victory at PAOK in the Greek Super League. 

The Greeks have found things difficult in Europe having claimed just one win in the Champions League group stage before dropping into the Europa League. Pedro Martins' men have also lost their last two matches in the Europa League, failing to score in both fixtures. 

Olympiakos News


Forward El Arbi Hilel Soudani remains the only injury absentee for Olympiakos.

Arsenal vs Olympiakos Match Up


Alexandre Lacazette has scored in his last two appearances, including the winner in the first leg in Greece. He should combine well with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who has scored four goals in his last five matches.

Youssef El Arabi is often the go-to-man for Olympiakos but the striker has failed to score in his last two matches. He was kept quiet in the first leg and should once again struggle against the Gunners on Thursday.
