    GOOD EVENING FROM NORTH LONDON

    Welcome to our live coverage of the crunch Europa League Last-16 second leg between Arsenal and Olympiacos at the Emirates Stadium.

    The Gunners are looking to seal qualification to the quarter-finals when they take on the same team that eliminated them from the Round of 32 last year on the same ground.

    Manager Mikel Arteta looks set to reintroduce Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to his starting line-up after dropping him from the north London derby against Tottenham last weekend due to disciplinary issues.

    Arteta will have to make a late decision regarding Bukayo Saka's fitness as the versatile winger is nursing a hamstring strain, but other than that the Arsenal boss is not dealing with any other injury concerns.

    Olympiacos manager Pedro Martins had to drop defender Ousseynou Ba from his line-up just a few minutes before the first leg last week due to a back injury.

    However, Ba is back in contention and thus former Arsenal transfer target Yann M'Vila is set to return in midfield next to Mady Camara and captain Andreas Bouchalakis.

    Forward Marios Vrousai has been included in the defending Greek champions' squad as he is healing from a meniscus injury.

    However, Martins will be missing centre-backs Ruben Semedo and Avraam Papadopoulos due to a knee and adductor injury respectively.

    Star man Mathieu Valbuena has also been ruled out as he is also dealing with some adductor problems while striker Ahmed Hassan has sustained a muscle injury
