Manchester United v Olympiakos: 10 reasons for Manchester United to be optimistic of Champions League progress
David Moyes' side must overturn a 2-0 defeat in the first-leg if they are to reach the quarter-finals
Manchester United face Olympiakos at Old Trafford tonight needing to overturn a 2-0 first-leg defeat.

Check out our reasons for Manchester United to be optimistic below...
