Olympiacos FC are within touching distance of a UEFA Champions League quarter-final place for the first time in 15 years after sailing to a comfortable 2-0 victory against Manchester United FC in Piraeus.
Alejandro Domínguez gave the hosts a deserved lead seven minutes before half-time with a clever flick to divert Giannis Maniatis's shot past the wrong-footed David de Gea. Joel Campbell, on loan from Arsenal FC, doubled the advantage ten minutes after the restart and United never looked like getting back into it. The English champions will need to improve drastically to turn this tie around on 19 March at Old Trafford.
We did what we had to do to win. We attacked well and were strong at the back. We gave everything we had and got what we deserved.
Joel Campbell, Olympiacos midfielder
There is undoubtedly talent at Manchester United but we didn't show it tonight. We are determined to put it right and we have the opportunity to do that.
David Moyes, Manchester United manager
