Arsenal are due to fly out to Greece today ahead of their crucial Champions League clash with Olympiakos this week and are bringing with them a nervous set of fans.
The Gunners need to win the tie by two goals if they hope to make it through to the next round of the tournament, or else risk being demoted to the Europa League. Put simply, it’s an absolutely huge tie.
However, a large number of the supporters have already given up hope after it was confirmed that the team will be wearing their third choice blue cup kit.
The kit famously made appearances during defeats to Sheffield Wednesday and Bayern Munich while it also saw key players injured when worn against Norwich.
