Arsenal vs Olympiacos
Arsenal’s 2019/20 Europa League adventure is set to continue this coming Thursday.
The Gunners will welcome Greek outfit Olympiacos to the Emirates for a round of 32 tie.
Arsenal dominated large parts of the previous leg in Greece, and probably should have come away with more than just a 1-0 victory.
It would be Alexandre Lacazette who got the only goal of the clash, though, which has still put the north Londoners in the driver’s seat ahead of kick-off on Thursday.
Highlights: Olympiacos 0-Arsenal 1
Arsenal team news update
Ahead of Thursday’s tie, Arsenal have provided injury updates on a number of their players.
The Gunners saw off Everton this past weekend, to continue their unbeaten run in 2020.
But less than 20 minutes into that tie, Arsenal were forced to bring off Sead Kolasinac.
The defender went off with his right arm tucked up in his shirt, sort of like a sling.
Arsenal have since, on Wednesday, confirmed that Kolasinac suffered a significant right shoulder injury vs Everton, and will undergo further specialist assessments during the week.
As well as Kolasinac, the north London outfit also provided updates on Kieran Tierney and Cedric Soares.
Arsenal reported that Cedric is progressing well, and aiming to be in full training by the end of February.
They then confirmed that Tierney, who dislocated his should in December, is also making good progress in his rehabilitation process, and has commenced participation in group training sessions.
