Northern Ireland keeper Roy Carroll comes into the side for the Greeks, who will be out to repeat last season’s win here to secure seeding for the Europa League.

Olympiakos: Carroll, Diakite, Manolas, Contreras, Torosidis, Paulo Machado, Maniatis, Fejsa, Greco, Djebbour, Abdoun.

Subs: Megyeri, Ibagaza, Pantelic, Mitroglou, Fetfatzidis, David Fuster, Siovas
