The Arsenal Therapy Podcast – Olympiacos 1-3 Arsenal (020)

Summary

Welcome to The Arsenal Therapy Podcast, a dedicated show about a club I love, Arsenal Football Club.

Looking ahead into a jam packed week of football, this was a crucial game for Arsenal to win by scoring more than 1 away goal to assure a strong starting lineup for the North London Derby. The starting lineup was relatively strong with Saka, Odegaard and Partey leading the lineup, however it was surprising to see Willian start ahead of Pepe. The game it self was very much a game of two halves with Arsenal starting the first half very strong and dominant with a world class strike from Odegaard. However, following the first goal, Arsenal sat back and allowed Olympiacos to grow into the game and eventually in the second half equalised through yet again, ANOTHER error at the back. This time Leno is to blame for coming out of his area and putting Ceballos under pressure. Following from the error Arsenal found it very difficult to regroup with Olympiacos putting us under pressure and having the ball around the final third of our half. However, a brilliant leap from Gabriel saw him score a wonderful header that changed the tie and soon followed a world class strike from Elneny who apparently is only capable of scoring 30 yard shots. Arsenal will be very happy with the overall result, however with the North London Derby only days away, can this team stop gifting their opposition with goals created from errors.
