Arsenal's 2019-20 Europa League campaign ended with a home defeat to Olympiakos but the Gunners have a healthy 3-1 first-leg lead over the Greeks this time around.
Long-range strikes from Martin Odegaard and Mohamed Elneny lit up the away leg in Piraeus, although Arsenal conceded a soft goal to Youssef El Arabi, who also scored Olympiakos's 119th-minute winner at the Emirates last term.
Arsenal were impressive in Sunday's derby win over Tottenham and they should progress to the quarter-finals, particularly as top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returns after missing the Spurs game due to a disciplinary issue.
But doubts remain over a defence who have kept one clean sheet in their last 13 games and conceded twice at home to Benfica in the last 32 before Aubameyang's dramatic late winner.
Both teams have scored in 12 of the Gunners' last 14 Europa League ties and Olympiakos may land a blow, albeit not a knockout one.
