Premier League giants Arsenal will host Greek football club Olympiacos in the second leg of the UEFA Europa League round of 16 at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday, March 18.

The Gunners are in the driving seat of their last-16 tie against Olympiacos after a 3-1 victory in Piraeus. Goals from Martin Odegaard, Gabriel and Mohamed Elneny saw Arsenal ease to a convincing win in the first leg. Meanwhile, Olympiacos striker Youssef El-Arabi pulled one goal to keep the chances of the Greek club alive in the fixture.

Arsenal have progressed from five of their last six UEFA Europa League knockout fixtures where they have won the first leg. Interestingly, the only time the North London club has failed to qualify was against Olympiacos last season where the Greek club turned around a 0-1 first leg home defeat to qualify on away goals courtesy a 2-1 second leg victory.

The Arsenal vs Olympiacos head-to-head record is slightly in favour of Mikel Arteta’s men, who have won six and lost five of the 11 encounters. Watch Arsenal vs Olympiacos live in India.
