Manchester United get Olympiakos in Champions League

Alexander Hassenstein

Manchester United will face Olympiakos in the first knockout round of the Champions League, probably the easiest opponent they could have drawn.

Manchester United will take on Olympiakos in the first knockout round of the Champions League. Some good news at last - drawing probably the easiest team of the lot.

Lengthier debates on tactics and personnel can now hopefully be avoided since we are, on paper, such a vastly superior side that any reasonable first eleven we send out should be getting through this tie without any problem at all.The best preview for this draw is probably going to be logging on to Red And White Kop and searching 'fix.'

But so we're all clued-up: Kostas Mitroglu is their best player and is scoring a lot of goals, while their midfield star is 2004's Pablo Aimar - not exactly the kind of physical menace that United struggle to cope with in the centre of the park.

Elsewhere, Manchester City got an equally straightforward team in Barcelona, while Arsenal inevitably drew Bayern Munich and Chelsea got the team we didn't want, Galatasaray. Wouldn't it be amusing if David Moyes was the only Premier League manager left in the Quarter-Finals?
