Ex-Villa defender Mellberg urging Olympiakos to play for max points when Arsenal visit

Olympiakos defender Olof Mellberg is aware that his side needs victory when Arsenal come to town tomorrow.

The Greek club require three points and hope that Marseille do not defeat Borussia Dortmund to leapfrog the French outfit to finish second in Group F of the Champions League.

And with Arsenal already securing top spot in the group, the former Aston Villa man says it could be a great opportunity to get the required victory.

"We have to try to win against Arsenal and then we'll see what happens in Dortmund. Arsenal are already through but I don't know if that will be a big advantage," Mellberg told

"Who knows, maybe [Arsene] Wenger will throw in all of the youngsters and they'll play an amazing game.

"We just don't know what they will do. But we are playing at home and we'll focus on our own game. Hopefully we can get the win."
