Manchester United travelled to Athens to take on Olympiakos in their round of 16 Champions League clash. 

And while it's hardly the most glamorous tie of the first round of the knockout stages, the fans in Greece managed to make for some stunning eye candy inside of the Karaiskakis Stadium. 

There were the standard pyro displays.
