Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Olympiacos, Aubameyang returns

Predicted Arsenal line-up vs Olympiacos

Arsenal welcome Olympiacos to the Emirates Stadium for the second leg of the Europa League last 16 tie tonight.

The Gunners won 3-1 in the reverse fixture, but they were lucky as the Greek outfit failed to capitalise on some defensive errors.

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Predicted Line-up:

Bernd Leno is the first-choice goalkeeper and he is expected to start.

The backline could see a solitary change at right-back.

Cedric Soares had a good north London derby, but Hector Bellerin may return to the mix for tonight’s game.

Thomas Partey looked jaded in the final 15 minutes of the derby, which saw him make several fouls.

We anticipate Mohamed Elneny to accompany Granit Xhaka in the midfield.

Dani Ceballos is another option available, but the Spaniard has been poor with his recent European displays.

Bukayo Saka was nursing a hamstring issue, but he is likely to be deemed fit for the game.

Still, Mikel Arteta may take caution and start Nicolas Pepe on the right wing.

The other change may be upfront with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang replacing Alexandre Lacazette.

Aubameyang was left on the bench for the derby after arriving late and breaking the pre-match protocols.

Lacazette did score the winning penalty against Spurs, but he squandered few clear-cut chances prior to that.

Hence, the club-captain should lead the line ahead of the Frenchman.

Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1): Leno, Bellerin, Luiz, Gabriel, Tierney, Elneny, Xhaka, Pepe, Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Aubameyang.
