The elite Arsenal club someone will have to join in Greece

Arsenal know what they have to do, the question is: Can they do it?  On Wednesday, the Gunners will face Olympiakos aware that their Champions League fate rests on the outcome of one fixture.

They are 90 minutes away from progression to the last 16, or early elimination and the consolation prize of a Europa League berth. Not since 1998/99, their first dalliance with a rebranded competition for European football’s elite, have they crashed out at the first hurdle – with the experiment of playing home games at Wembley backfiring on them somewhat.
