Group H Kick-off 19-45 (BST)
Laszlo Boloni has vowed Standard Liege will take the game to Olympiakos from the outset with his side bottom of Group H and trailing their second-placed opponents by five points.
With victory vital if his team are to stand any chance of reaching the last 16, Boloni has asked his players to create a “spectacle” for the home support.
“There are two or three players doubtful [because of illness] and they will undergo late tests,” he said. “I have watched our match in Greece where we played very well, made good chances and caused a lot of difficulties for the Greek champions.
” Unfortunately, [the 2-1 defeat on 20 October] did not bring us any points so Arsenal and Olympiakos lead the group and we have to do something to change that.
“We are going to create a spectacle and I hope I can be satisfied when it’s over. Because Olympiakos won the home match, they can approach this one like they are sitting in a comfortable chair. They can wait patiently to see how the game unfolds and then adjust their tactics accordingly.”
Meanwhile, Olympiakos coach Zico is looking for a result that will help his side reach the knockout stages.
“This is a huge match for us because we can qualify for the knockout rounds with a good result,” he said. “It is also a vital game for Standard. For them the result is probably even more important because they almost certainly need a win to stay in contention.
Obviously I would prefer to win, but a draw would also do for me as we would then have seven points. I expect Standard to attack from the start, yet we are prepared for that.
As a player, I never played against Belgium or a Belgian team, but I do know Jean-Marie Pfaff, who was a fantastic keeper, and as a coach I also knocked out Anderlecht in the Champions League qualifying round with Fenerbahce.”
