Arsenal ended their Champions League Group F campaign with a 3-1 defeat in Olympiacos - but the Greeks missed out on the knockout stages.

In-form Algeria striker Rafik Djebbour slotted home on 16 minutes after a loose ball was not cut out at the edge of the area, before substitute keeper Vito Mannone - on for the injured Lukasz Fabianski - made a hash of his clearance as David Fuster made it 2-0 at half-time.

Yossi Benayoun slotted home a consolation before Francois Modesto secured victory with a minute left but, with Marseille producing a late rally to win in Dortmund, it was not enough to see the Greeks through to the last 16.
