Arsenal heads to Karaiskakis Stadium in Athens, Greece, to face Olympiacos for a Champions League match on Wednesday.

Arsenal is expected to be without Alexis Sanchez and several other key players as it looks to qualify for the knockout stage of the tournament. Arsenal currently sits in third place in the Group F table and needs a two-goal margin of victory (or a one-goal margin of victory if the Gunners score three times or more) to pass Olympiacos in the standings.

Olympiacos fell to Bayern Munich 4–0 on Nov. 24. Olympiacos won 3–2 at Arsenal on Sept. 29 with Felipe Pardo and Alfred Finnbogason both netting goals.

Arsenal beat Sunderland 3–1 on Saturday. The Gunners are up to second in the Premier League table, behind only Leicester City. 

Arsenal has qualified for the knockout stage of the Champions League every year since 2000.
