Anderlecht is eliminated and don’t have much to play for. Olympiakos on the other hand is in the driver seat for the second seed in the group. They have seven points, as does Benfica, but they have the advantage in the goal differential. As long as they get a win and Benfica doesn’t blow out Paris Saint-Germain they’ll advance.
“My selection on the weekend was not so much a matter of looking for freshness as looking for success and continuity,” Coach Michel said. “But I was disappointed with how many times we lost the ball when we had possession.
“It is true maybe we did have our minds on Tuesday, especially as it is a competition that has the eyes of the world on it and that can effect players. But on Tuesday we will need to be fresher, faster, more aggressive and end as winners.”
