Olympiakos' Karaiskakis stadium fits a measly 33,000 when all seats are available, but don’t let that modest number fool you. The supporters have been known to create an intimidating atmosphere during big Champions League games and can really influence play on the field. Before heading to Karaiskakis in the 2009 UCL, Bordeaux midfielder Jaroslav Plasil stated “It was one of the most intense atmospheres I've ever experienced in a stadium, so I expect it will be a bit like hell for us.”
Olympiakos might be a tough test for Arsenal, but they truly don’t have the firepower to match the Gunners for 180 minutes. Their Greek GA leading defense won’t be able to contain the vast amount of offensive weapons the Gunners already have or will add by the time the series starts. Arsenal might have some trouble on the road, but will take care of business back at the Emirates.
