Olympiacos FC kept alive their hopes of reaching the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League after defeating Group B rivals Montpellier Hérault SC for the second time in successive matchdays.
Goals from Leandro Greco and Kostas Mitroglou in the final ten minutes sealed victory for Leonardo Jardim's side after Montpellier had cancelled out Paulo Machado's early effort through a Younes Belhanda penalty. Having also beaten Montpellier 2-1 at La Mosson on matchday three, the Greek club now have six points, and while they remain third in the group, they are just one point behind second-placed Arsenal FC and two adrift of leaders FC Schalke 04.
Our goal is to make it to the next phase and there are still six points to win. We are a new team compared to last year and we are improving steadily.
Leonardo Jardim, Olympiacos coach
I cannot explain why we lost our rhythm in the last ten minutes. Olympiacos were the better side because they beat us, it is as simple as that. We did not live up to the demands of this group.
René Girard, Montpellier coach
