Olympiakos head coach Leonardo Jardim insists there will be no comparison to last season’s 3-1 victory over Arsenal when the two sides meet in the final Champions League group stage match in Athens but is still planning the same outcome.

The Gunners are already through to the knockout stages though the result of the match and the other Group B clash between Montpellier and Schalke will determine whether the north Londoners top the pool or come second.

Jardim insists the Greek side will be fully focused on delivering a send-off for the vocal home support at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium.

“We have a couple of aims to fulfil, the first is to be one of the seeded teams in the Europa League draw, and the second target is to perform well to give happiness to our fans,” Jardim told a press conference.

“Last year’s win over Arsenal here can have no comparisons for tomorrow’s game, because there are new individuals coming in.

“What we would just like to do is see this team repeat the same score once again.”

Jardim, however, accepts the visit to Panathinaikos is of more importance than tomorrow’s outcome.

He said: “I would like to have victories in both matches but if I have to choose one, then it would be against Panathinaikos.”
