The remaining Greek representative in the European football competitions, Olympiacos, discovered the identity of their next opponent for round 32 of the Europa League.
That will be none other than Arsenal, the team of both Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Kostas Mavropanos, with the two teams having a lot of history with each other.
More specifically, they have met eight times within the past ten years (all for the Champions League group stage) with the team from Piraeus counting four victories over their highly esteemed opponents and the “gunners” counting just as many.

The supporters of the English side responded to the news of the draw with a bit of pessimism, considering the poor form their club has shown so far in the season, as just a few weeks ago the officials decided to part ways with Turkish manager Unai Emery and called up former legend Fredrik Ljungberg to take over.
They currently lie in ninth position in the English Premier League with five wins, seven draws and five losses, while they comfortably made it to the next round of the Europa League with four wins, two draws and a single loss.
Despite their current form however, they still remain one of the most experienced teams in English football and Olympiacos will need to come up with something special if they are to have any chance of making it through to the next round.
The two games will be played on the 21 and 28 February 2020.
Meanwhile Cypriot champions APOEL had much better luck as they were drawn to face Swiss champions FC Basel.
