Podolski sinks Olympiakos as Arsenal bounce back

- +

Lukas Podolski maintained Arsenal's 100 percent start to their Champions League campaign as the Gunners recovered from a lacklustre opening to beat Greek side Olympiakos 3-1 on Wednesday. 

Olympiakos FC's goalkeeper Balazs Megyeri (C) dives to try and save a shot from Arsenal's Ivorian forward Gervinho to score the opening goal during the UEFA Champions League Group B football match at the Emirates Stadium in London. Arsenal won 3-1.

Arsene Wenger's side were below their best for long periods at the Emirates Stadium, but Germany forward Podolski made the crucial contribution as he put Arsenal ahead after Gervinho's opener was cancelled out by Olympiakos striker Kostas Mitroglou.
