Olympiakos is determined to beat Arsenal in the Champions League on Wednesday despite needing just a draw to reach the knockout phase.

"Arsenal is a big team that has its sights set on the final ... but we want to beat them," Olympiakos playmaker Luciano Galletti said.

Arsenal has already qualified for the next round, topping Group H with four wins and a draw after earlier trouncing Celtic 5-1 on aggregate in the playoffs.

Greek champion Olympiakos is in second place in the group and won both its home games, but has been held back by injuries that produced some shaky league performances early in the season.

Arsenal won its home leg against Olympiakos 2-0 on late goals from Robin van Persie and Andrei Arshavin.
