Preview: Olympiacos vs. Manchester United

Sports Mole previews Tuesday's Champions League last-16 first-leg clash between Olympiacos and Manchester United in Greece.

Manchester United return to Champions League action on Tuesday night with a trip to Greece to face Olympiacos in the first leg of their last-16 tie.

David Moyes's side reached the knockout stage after finishing at the top of Group A with four wins and two draws from their six matches.

Olympiacos, who are currently on a 19-game unbeaten run, had to settle for second place in Group C, pipping Benfica on goal difference.

The two teams have met a total of four times down the years, with United winning on all four occasions.

Juan Mata misses out for the visitors due to being cup-tied, but Rafael da Silva and Phil Jones could be back in the squad after spells on the sidelines.

Javier Saviola has been ruled out through injury for the hosts, while Arsenal loanee Joel Campbell is likely to feature.
