Arsenal are no better than a mid-table side in the Premier League this season and Mikel Arteta is currently trying to make the Gunners hard to beat which is working out pretty well considering they are seven games unbeaten at the time of writing.

However, draws have been more commonplace than victories this season and we certainly can’t have faith in the London side to get the job done at the Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus against an Olympiacos side who acquitted themselves well in the Champions League.

The Greek side came from two goals down to claim a 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur, while they also pushed Bayern Munich close when losing 3-2 and their final home match of the group phase was a 1-0 victory over Red Star Belgrade.

It’s clear that Pedro Martins’ side are a dangerous beast in front of their own supporters, with Arsenal having reached the last 32 stage of the competition after winning their Europa League section which also included Eintracht Frankfurt, Standard Liege and Vitória de Guimarães.

The Gunners did enjoy a 3-0 victory in Frankfurt although the other two away games ended in a draw and the bottom line is that the visitors have claimed just two wins from thirteen matches on the road in the Premier League.

While Arteta can call upon talented attacking players such as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mesut Ozil and Nicolas Pepe, the Spaniard doesn’t have the same level of quality in defence and we think it’s worth siding with Olympiacos on the Asian Handicap.

Arsenal will be more than happy with a high-scoring draw before attempting to get the job done at the Emirates Stadium, while their opponents will be realistic and know that they will have to establish some kind of first leg advantage to go through.
