Injured Arsenal defender Sead Kolasinac will miss his side’s Europa League last-32 second leg against Olympiakos, but manager Mikel Arteta is hopeful he will return to action this season.
Kolasinac suffered a “significant” shoulder injury during Sunday’s 3-2 win against Everton, and Arteta admits the signs are “not very positive”.
Arsenal have won three of their four home meetings with Olympiakos in all competitions, though they did lose the last match 3-2 in the 2015-16 Champions League group stage.
Olympiacos lost all three of their away games in the Champions League group stages and Sportsbet price them at 6.00 to record an upset in the English capital.
Arsenal ended 2019 with seven consecutive winless matches in front of their own fans but since the turn of the year, the Gunners have drawn one and won four of their five home games in 2020.
Olympiakos are a side that travel extremely poorly in Europe, having lost each of their last seven away games in the Champions League.
Arsenal vs Olympiacos Tips and Predictions
Arsenal to win and over 1.5 goals in the game is priced at 1.75 and seems like an intelligent way to get the Gunners onside, with this bet paying out in eight of the Gunners’ 10 home wins this season in all competitions.
