Olympiacos denied Ibagaza for Arsenal tie

Olympiacos FC will be without Ariel Ibagaza for their crucial Group F game against Arsenal FC on Tuesday after the 35-year-old midfielder picked up a thigh injury on Saturday.

Olympiacos FC have been deprived of Ariel Ibagaza for their crucial Group F game against Arsenal FC on Tuesday.

Ibagaza had been sidelined with a quadriceps problem since 15 November but returned to action for the 6-0 Greek Super League win against Doxa Dramas FC last Wednesday. He also started against Panaitolikos GFS on Saturday but went off four minutes from half-time in the 2-0 victory. Subsequent tests revealed a thigh strain which will keep the 35-year-old sidelined for a fortnight.

Ernesto Valverde will also be without Jean Makoun (knee), Ljubomir Fejsa (knee) and David Fuster (groin) for the visit of Arsenal, while Francisco Yeste (calf) is douftful. Olympiacos are third in Group F, a point adrift of Olympique de Marseille ahead of their final fixture.
