Mesut Ozil has taken to social media to reveal his excitement ahead of Arsenal’s Champions League clash with Olympiacos on Tuesday night.

The Gunners are looking to return to winning ways in Europe’s elite club competition after they suffered a 2-1 loss to Dinamo Zagreb in their first group outing earlier this month.

And Germany international Ozil is clearly looking forward to lining up for the north London side at Emirates Stadium this week.

Ozil, 26, posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Preparations completed! 😊 Tomorrow #ucl again @arsenal ‘s living room! ⚽👍 #YaGunnersYa #Emirates #AFCvOLY”

The two clubs are in the same group for the fourth time in seven seasons, having also been drawn together in 2009-10, 2011-12 and 2012-13.

Arsenal are unbeaten in eight home contests against Greek visitors, winning six and drawing two.
