Eventhough Olympiakos wasn't thorwn in a hard group, rather a easy one I belive the greeks have little chances even to repeat last year performance when they were a few minutes from qualifying and only a nailbite finish in Dortmund - Marseille stoped them from reaching this phase. This time they make their debut againt a german team and they have a very good record againt teams from this country. Schalke for me is one of the best sides in Europe at the moment, they have a very strong outfit they made smart signings this summer and they should qualify easily alongside Arsenal from this group. In the Bundesliga the "miners" started with 7 points from 3 rounds only drawing on a very difficult pitch in Hannover. Olympiakos has won its first 4 matches in the greek league, but the opposition was dreadful, actuly the level of the greek championship has gone down the hill, because of the financial problems many of the good foreing players departed this summer. Olympiakos also lost a bunch of important players like Mellberg, Mirallas, Makoun and the list can go on. I am aware that Olympiakos at home is a team that can punch above its weight otherwise Schalke is clearly the better side so I will only go with a DNB on the away side.
