Arsenal to Win and Over 2.5

The English team is in good form and they are focused on the Europa League as their potential way to the Champions League football next season. With that in mind, we expect them to take things seriously and confirm the first-leg victory with another win against the Greeks. We also expect plenty of goals like in the first match. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in five of the last seven meetings between these two clubs.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams scored in the first leg and we expect the same thing to happen in the rematch. In fact, in the last five head-to-head matches between these teams, both teams have scored in three of them. And since Olympiakos has to attack from the start, this should be a very open game. Each of Arsenal’s last five matches in all competitions have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard.

Alexandre Lacazette to Score Anytime

The French forward has been the best goalscorer for the team this season, with 10 goals in the Premier League. However, he didn’t play much in Europe and he even came off the bench in the first leg against Olympiakos. Mikel Arteta is trying to balance his rotations between PL and EL, so it’s unsure whether Lacazette will start tonight. If he starts, our tip is that he will also score.

Arsenal vs Olympiakos preview: A hard situation for the Greeks

The Gunners are looking comfortable after the first leg, but there are still 90 minutes left to play. So, let’s take a closer look at the shape of both teams at the moment and other related news.

Arsenal

After struggling in the first half of the season when they seemed more like a relegation candidate than a top 6 Premier League team, Arsenal has picked up the form lately. They have won three of their last five matches in the league, including the victory over their fierce rivals Spurs in the previous round. Since the London team is unlikely to secure Europe through the league, they are focusing on the Europa League and it seems to be working after winning in the first leg in Greece. Arsenal has a clean bill of health for the second leg.

Olympiakos

The perennial Greek champions are, once again, leading the league and only a miracle can stop them from winning it again. They have only lost once in 26 league games and they are on a three-game winning streak at the moment. And while they’ve lost the first leg at home, they are in good form and shouldn’t be written off just yet. Olympiakos will be without Papadopoulos, Vrousai, and Semedo in the second leg.
