Olympiakos miss out on chance to ensure round of 16 status

Greek club Olympiakos have missed an opportunity to book their place in the round of 16 in the European Champions League.

A 0-0 draw with Dutch outfit AZ Alkmaar on Tuesday night put Olympiakos three points clear in second place on the Group H table but they have to take on group leaders Arsenal in their final match.

Third-placed Standard Liege, who lost to Arsenal 2-0, need a win against the eliminated Alkmaar in the final group stage fixture to go through provided Arsenal get the points against Olympiakos.

A draw at home will be enough for the Greeks to get through but if they lose they will have to rely on Alkmaar holding Liege to a draw or beating them on Wednesday December 8.
