ARS vs OLY Dream11: Having won the first leg 0-1 in Athens last week, Arsenal will look to finish the job in the second leg and qualify for the round-of-16 as they host Olympiacos at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night (IST). The Gunners were not at their best and suffered for much of the game. The result could could have been different had the hosts not fluffed their lines on many occasions. But the Gunners came out of that game with a 0-1 lead, thanks to Alexandre Lacazette's goal nine minutes from the time.

Arsenal vs Olympiacos Team News:
Arsenal Team News:
Sead Kolasinac suffered a shoulder injury during Arsenal's 3-2 home win over Everton at the weekend and is not available for this game.
He joins Kieran Tiernay, Cedric Soares and Calum Chambers on the sideline.
Arsenal's new signing Pablo Mari, who arrived on loan during the winter transfer window, is still not at 100% match fitness and is expected to miss this game.
Arsenal likely changes!
We expect Mikel Arteta to go for the kill here and name a strong starting 11, but changes are still expected.
Lucas Torreiria missed the first leg due to an illness but he recovered in time to play against Everton, so he is in contention for this game.
Alexandre Lacazette should start up fron, as he has in Europa League games this season with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang featuring from the bench if needed.
Arsenal key players:
Alexandre Lacazette: The gaol drought is over and he is back amongst the goals.
Reiss Nelson: He has taken giant strides in his still blossoming career.
Gabriel Martinelli: He is also on the right track and is Arsenal's youngest hottest property at the moment
Watch out for David Luiz's long-range passing.
Olympiacos team news:
Centre-back Ruben Semedo picked up his second booking of the tournament in the first leg and so is suspended for this game. Pep Abou Cisse is expected to partner Ousseynou Ba at the back as a result.
Youssef El-Arabi: He had chances in the first leg but failed to convert. The form he has been in since the start of the season, you would back him to bury those chances. Still, he will be a threat here. Goals 24 in all competitions.
Mathieu Valbuena: He can do a little bit of magic. Goal 07.
Giorgos Masouras: One of the most consistent performers for Olympiacos.
