    Not even that, Arsenal can win and still fail, because UEFA uses H2H, Arsenal need to win by two goals, not impossible of course but Olympiakos are very strong at home

    Oh Dinamo...

    Zenit-Lyon result doesn't bode well for France keeping their coefficient ranking.

    Zenit one point away from winning the group (have already confirmed a spot in the R16)

    I doubt that'll happen.

    Arsenal are likely through to the round of 16.

    And good on Chelsea for attacking in the final 10 mins.

    How are Arsenal "likely" to get through? 12% points more to UNlikely.

    So Arsenal is 6 points behind Olympiakos, who won at Arsenal, and are playing excellent ball now, yet it's impossible for Olympiakos to get a point? :huh: Olympiakos is the team "likely through to the round of 16."

    Don't worry, you know Olympiacos is through. Judging by your flag you may be a fan. Enjoy it

    Fan or not, which I am, it's a pretty ignorant thing to post.

    Well it's not like Arsenal are on bad form either, they've made superior teams like Man Utd, Bayern, Everton look silly in recent weeks.

    I think Arsenal are going to lay an absolute drubbing on them the final match - provided the expected results hold (Arsenal beat Dinamo, Bayern beat Olympiakos at Allianz)

    Arsenal haven't garnered a single point away from home, yet you think they'll beat down a team that worked Arsenal over in London. Okay.

    Arsenal weren't in the same form then as they are now. That's quite easy to see.

    In two matches where more than 1/3rd of their Starting XIs were missing in both matches. Interesting observation.

    1) Olympiakos are unreal at home. It's not as easy as you may think.

    2) Do you actually think Arsenal will be in the same "form", in a month?

    3) They still have to beat Dinamo, who they already lost to.

    4) You say form, yet Arsenal just lost to Sheffield Wednesday 3-0, only 2 games ago.

    5) 12%

    1) I don't think it'll be easy, but I feel confident the team will find a way through. Then they'll lose to Barca in the round of 16.

    2) Shouldn't be an issue given Dinamo's recent form.

    3) They had Debuchy, Chambers, Campbell, Iwobi, Kamara, Bielik and Bennacer appear in that match. That was pretty much the youth team.

    4) Never tell me the odds. :)

    Ooops skipped over the second one, but I doubt they'll be in the same form. They can't get much worse than when the teams first met though. (I hope)

    There is also the fact that Olympiakos are running away with it in the domestic league. They will be able to rest players before the match.

    You need depth to compete in the Champion's League, which Arsenal doesn't have, as shown in your previous post. They face Sunderland the match before so there's a little bit of hope.

    Arsenal will have to beat Olympiakos either with at least two goals difference or at least 3:2 in order to advance. Calling them "likely through to the round of 16" appears to be a very bold statement to me as well; Arsenal's best bet may be the propensity for fireworks of Greek fans...

    Arsenal have depth, unfortunately they're all injured so you may be right on that one.

    If Welbeck and Wilshere were healthy, I think things would be a lot smoother.

    You're just setting yourself up for disappointment. Although, being an Arsenal fan, you're used to it. :sarcasm: :)

    even if Arsenal progress they will once again lost in the R16, unless they draw Zenit and even then I'm sure Wenger will underestimate them like he does all the time against teams not named Bayern/Barca in recent years

    I give Arsenal more than 12% which the SPI says but the fact Arsenal are in this position is laughable. Losing to Dinamo Zagreb in general is laughable, they haven't won a CL match since the late 90s and the strongest European team they beat in recent years is probably Celtic :laugh:

    Arsenal wouldn't beat Zenit, IMO. They are an impressive side. I'm not saying they can win it all but, in the games I've seen, they look like a nice, tidy team who are deadly on the counter-attack.

    All I can say is Hulk is a beast. Dzyuba is clicking well with him.

    There you go, CSKA, that's how you play an away game.

    2009 CL: Olympiakos 1-0 Arsenal
    2011 CL: Olympiakos 3-1 Arsenal
    2012 CL: Olympiakos 2-1 Arsenal

    Not sure how any Arsenal fan can think going to Greece is a formality.
