Two Olympiakos players have said the team will go to Old Trafford on Wednesday in their Champions League second leg tie and attack Manchester United, Sky Sports has reported.

Olympiakos have a 2-0 lead from the first leg but goalkeeper Roberto and midfielder Alejandro Dominguez have said that the prestige of playing at the home of the Premier League champions will act as a motivating factor.

“Old Trafford is an impressive stadium but we are very motivated for the match. Our challenge is to stay in the Champions League,” Roberto said.

“I am convinced that if we score one goal in England we will go through,” he continued. “The defeat against Liverpool will have damaged United but also that could be dangerous because there may be a reaction.

“The pressure is on United and Olympiakos could exploit this anxiety if we play with our heads.”

Dominguez, a scorer in the first leg, added that the game was far from finished and Olympiakos would need to go on the front foot.

“We have an advantage but the tie is not over. The English side need a goal and I expect a hard match, but I am optimistic,” Dominguez said.

“To play a defensive match at Old Trafford would be an error because to give United control of the ball would be dangerous. Our Coach [Michel] has demanded that we forget the score in Athens and to think only about the 90 minutes in Manchester.

“United were the favourites when the draw was made but now it is different.”

Joel Campbell, the Costa Rica forward on loan at Olympiakos from Arsenal, was the scorer of the other goal in the first leg.
