Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction at Olympiacos (Europa League)


Fresh off a 4-0 demolishing of Newcastle United, Arsenal will head to Greece with a substantial amount of confidence in midweek. Tomorrow night sees the Gunners square off against Olympiacos, in the road leg of their Europa League Round of 32 tie. Forward Alexandre Lacazette will enter this match with an extra pep in his step, possibly, as he just ended his goal drought over the weekend.

Look for the Frenchman to lead the line here while Gunners boss Mikel Arteta likely puts out a team composed of some regulars and some reserves. Let’s take a look at who else might possibly be in the first team on Thursday night.

Arsenal FC Starting XI Prediction: Martinez; Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Mustafi, Kolasinac; Torreira, Ceballos; Pepe, Willock, Martinelli; Lacazette
