Arsenal travel to Greece on Thursday night to take on Olympiakos in the first leg of their Europa League last 32 tie.

It will not be easy for them as the Greeks are on an 18-match unbeaten run, last losing to Tottenham in the Champions League in November.

Olympiakos also held Spurs to a 2-2 draw when they hosted the Premier League outfit in the group stage in September.

The match kicks-off at 8pm on Thursday 20 February at the Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.
