Rosicky scores on his return as Arsenal lose in Greece

Arsenal wasted the chance to go top of their Champions League group after Greek giants Olympiakos defeated the Gunners’ in Athens.

Manager Arsene Wenger brought a weakened side to Greece knowing beforehand that qualification into the last 16 was secured following their last group game win over Montpellier.

The out-of-form north Londoners simply had to win and hope Schalke slipped up in France to ensure a more favourable draw for the last 16 but they were downed 2-1 by the Greek champions.

Tomas Rosicky gave the visitors a half-time lead but quickfire goals from Giannis Maniatis and Kostas Mitroglou won it for a resurgent Olympiakos team.
