The visitors complicated things six minutes after the break when Youssef El Arabi’s shot took a deflection and beat Bernd Leno in the Arsenal goal, but Mikel Arteta’s men absorbed the resulting pressure and booked their place in the last eight.

Olympiakos defender Ousseynou Ba was sent off for a second yellow card in the 82nd minute for a bad foul on Gabriel Martinelli.

The draw for the quarterfinals will be held during a ceremony on March 19.
