Sokratis Papastathopoulos is confident Olympiakos can shackle Arsenal’s match-winners as he predicted another Europa League upset for the Gunners.

He played alongside Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in north London as well as at Borussia Dortmund so knows what to expect from the striker and his former team-mates – but believes they can be kept quiet over the two legs of their round-of-16 clash.

“It is tough to play against top players. We know Aubameyang and (Alexandre) Lacazette are great players and if they have their day they can decide a match, however, today we will be the ones to win the match and have a great evening.”

“As a far as I am concerned it is a bit bizarre (to be playing Arsenal), as two months ago I was team-mates with many of these guys from Arsenal. “This is not something that you get every day in football. However, it is a major challenge for me. It’s a new challenge and my mind is set on winning.”
