However, Arsene Wenger’s men can still finish on top of the group if Schalke drop points against Montpellier – so the incentive is certainly there for them.
Also, Wenger will be desperate for his side to pick up all three points and reinstall some much needed confidence after their 2-0 defeat at home to Swansea City in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
The North London side have lost just once in Europe’s elite club competition this campaign and only conceded six goals, so they do look well organised in this tournament.
With qualification already achieved, Wenger has already stated he is sure to change things as he gives some key players a rest, as Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla, Mikel Arteta and Per Mertesacker stay behind in London, while Lukas Podolski, who already has three Champions League goals to his name and Theo Walcott are carrying knocks and will also not make the trip to Athens.
In all probability that means likely starts for some of the Arsenal youth products, as Wenger looks to give experience to Sead Hajrovic, Elton Monteiro & Chuba Akpom.
As for Olympiakos, they know they are guaranteed a spot in the Europa League this season as they are five points clear of Montpellier at the bottom of the group.
Although they do not have anything to play for in this one in terms of league position, the Greek champions know what a win against Arsenal would mean to the supporters and what it would do for confidence in the camp.
They also come into this one on the back of two straight wins in Greece’s top flight – so are in good form and will fancy their chances of a famous victory, especially on their own soil. Leonardo Jardim has no major injury concerns either, which makes the 5/4 on the Olympiakos home win more than a good bet.
It should be an interesting encounter and one that the Premier League side will need to be at their best in to claim all three points in and try to overhaul Schalke.
Kick-off for this one is 7.45PM on Tuesday evening.
