Olympiacos will provide a firm trial of that good feeling, though, with the Greek side having won two of their last three European ties against the Gunners. Follow all the action live below:

Prediction

The fortuitous Alexandre Lacazette goal in stoppage time against Newcastle will see the Frenchman confident once more, with the squad all seemingly buying into Arteta’s philosophy. We expect the Gunners to score away from home, but the Greek side have a strong home record after beating Red Star, giving Spurs a scare in a 2-2 draw and pushing Bayern in a 3-2 loss. We’ll opt for a 2-2 draw in Athens.
