Truth be told, despite the sweet intoxication of another European triumph, the day after the great victory of Olympiacos against Dinamo, finds most the of the Olympiacos fans day dreaming about the December 9, 2015, when Arsenal will visit the flaming "Georgios Karaiskakis" to play the last roll of the dice and spoil an epic night for the Greek champions.
All this, of course, if in the next game the logic prevails in Munich and London, as this year's achievements of Marco Silva team have long ago passed the boundaries of the football logic ...
Who is, however, one of the biggest allies of Piraeus in a duel with the "Gunners"? Arsenal’s own defense. After the five goals by Bayern the Londoners made a new negative record in their history for the first group stage of the Champions League with reference to the goals conceded.
For the first time since 1998/99 Wenger’s team concedes two figure number of goals (10) than their opponents (we are still in the fourth week), and until this year the more goals the conceded for the first group was 9 (the 1999/2000 season).
Two goals in Zagreb, three against Olympiacos in London and another five in Munich. The paradox? This negative record comes in a season that Wenger has the best goalkeeper in his era, Petr Cech .
