Arsene Wenger will field a fairly strong side as he seeks to overtake Schalke in Group B and finish top of the group. A win here coupled with the German side dropping points would secure that for the Gunners.
Arsene Wenger has admitted that he has left several first team players at home to rest, with Wilshere, Mertesacker, Arteta, Cazorla and Giroud amongst those rested after plenty of games recently, and Podolski and Walcott both having picked up knocks at the weekend.
Carl Jenkinson could play if Bacary Sagna is deemed unfit to return just yet.
Olympiakos are four points behind Arsenal and five points ahead of Montpellier in the standings, thus guaranteed third spot and a place in the Europa League knockout stages, so this game has no consequences for them.
While Arsenal are definitely through to the next round of the competition, they will still be looking for a win and hoping that Schalke slip up at Montpellier as they seek to secure top spot and thus a slightly easier draw in the next round.
Arsenal have played at Olympiakos twice in the last 3 years, losing on both occasions. The atmosphere will have played a part those times, though, and the crowd will be up for it again. Arsenal will dominate but may struggle to get the win they want.
