Arsenal vs. Olympiacos Match Analysis and Prediction

Arsenal set their eyes on the Europa League quarter-finals when they welcome Olympiacos for the second leg of their last 16-tie. The match schedules for Thursday at Emirates Stadium, with a kickoff at 8:55 pm.

The midfield seemed to come alive last time out as worldies from Martin Odegaard, El Neny, and Gabriel’s wonderful header gave a three-goal lead. El-Rabi equalized for the side following a mistake by Bernd Leno to make it 3-1.

The past two weeks saw Arsenal became their worst enemy, with costly mistakes becoming part and parcel from playing at the back. Xhaka gifted Burnley a goal to end in a 1-1 draw. The same mistakes were evident during their match with Olympiacos, with El-Rabi getting one after a Ceballos mistake.

However, Arsenal will head into the match full of confidence, especially after a North London Derby win. The Gunners managed to fully dominate their rivals, ending in a 2-1 win after a Martin Odegaard’s goal and a penalty converted by Lacazette, with Lamela equalizing with a beautiful rabona kick.

Olympiacos and El Rabi, in particular, will have fond memories back at the Emirates in the 2019-20 campaign. However, nostalgia will be far from the case as the Greek giants’ workaround to overturn a 3-1 goal deficit. Pedro Martin’s men will be regretful after letting some clear-cut chances go.
