Champions League: Olympiakos beats Arsenal 2-1
PIRAEUS, Greece (AP) -Substitute Costas Mitroglou fired Olympiakos to a 2-1 victory over Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday, as the Greek champions came from behind with two goals in nine minutes.
The London side took the lead against the flow of play in the 38th minute with Tomas Rosicky, set up by Gervinho, who switched to the right, outran two defenders and skillfully swung the ball back.
Yiannis Maniatis leveled in the 64th, pouncing on a defensive error before Mitroglou scored the winner in the 73rd, powering the ball past Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny from outside the area, just a minute after coming on.
Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger, whose team had already qualified from Group B, marked his 150th Champions League match. The Greeks were already destined for the Europa League.
