It’s boom or bust time for Arsene Wenger.
The equation is simple enough.
Arsenal will reach the last 16 of the Champions League if they can beat Olympiakos by two clear goals, or by one clear goal in a result that matches or exceeds the 3-2 scoreline from their first encounter with the Greeks.
Any other result, like a draw or a defeat, and Arsenal will tumble out of world football’s premier club competition.
Like repeating a broken record, Arsenal will have to win in Athens with a heavily depleted squad. Alexis Sanchez, Francis Coquelin, Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere, Tomas Rosicky, Danny Welbeck and Theo Walcott are all out of contention.
It’s also true that Arsenal have a poor record in Greece, as the Gunners have drawn one and lost four of their last five away games in the country.
As for the hosts, Olympiakos are the only team in the Greek Super League with a 100% record, and they are looking to reach the last 16 for the second time in three seasons.
