  • All over, and Olympiakos end their Champions League campaign with a victory. Defeat for much-changed Arsenal, but they still take their place in the draw for the last-16 and can be content with their work in this competition despite a poor second-half showing here.

    90+2
  • A late yellow card for Chamakh as he tries to get through on goal by punching the ball forward. Not subtle.

    90+2
  • We're into two added minutes.

    90+1
  • Wonderful crossfield pass from Oxlade-Chamberlain to set Gervinho away down the left, but he uses an arm to bring the ball under control.

    90
  • Into the final minute in Athens now.

    90
  • Olympiakos still pressing. Ibagaza's cross headed clear by Squillaci.

    88
  • Looks like this has slipped away from Arsenal. Three minutes plus stoppages remaining.

    87
  • Meade makes way for Martin Angha. The left-back's display has been a bright spot for Arsenal tonight.

    84
  • Smart, driving run from Oxlade-Chamberlain takes him into the penalty box, but his cross is too high for Chamakh.

    83
  • Ibagaza replaces Djebbour.

    82
  • Another quick break from Olympiakos, again it flounders on a heavy touch from Fuster.

    81
  • The corner is turned behind for another, but this one's cleared.

    81
  • Quick feet from Arshavin on the edge of the box creates a shooting opportunity, but Manolas gets a good block in and sends the ball spinning behind for a corner.

    80
  • Olympiakos sweep forward. Real swagger about their football now with both full-backs getting forward at will. Fuster's overhit pass ends the break, but the hosts are looking to add to their tally here rather than merely protect the lead.

    78
  • Gervinho goes down in the penalty box as Contreras leans on him, but the penalty appeals are half-hearted at best. Goal-kick.

    77
  • All Olympiakos now, but Djebbour wastes a promising position with a pass to no-one on the edge of the area.

    75
  • GOAL - MITROGLOU! He's only been on the field for a minute, but he's given his side the lead in fine style with a fizzing, curling shot that zips past Szczesny and inside the far post. It's a brilliant finish.

    73
  • Mitroglou replaces Abdoun.

    72
  • Olympiakos should be ahead. Wonderful low cross from the right finds Djebbour in space after ghosting past Jenkinson, but he somehow heads wide from six yards.

    69
  • Squillaci a touch fortunate to see only a yellow card after chopping down Djebbour, who had a chance to run on goal.
