Arsenal has recorded a vital away win over Greek side, Olympiakos during their knock out stage clash on Thursday.

The pulsating encounter which was evenly contested by both sides saw chances few to come by until deep into the second half when Frenchman, Alexandre Lacassette pounced on a loose ball to open the scoring.

The home side then threw everything at the Gunners in order to salvage a draw from the encounter but they met brickwall in the visitors defence.
