Arsenal headed into the tie with a 3-1 advantage from the first leg, with Olympiacos needing to match their three away goals to stand any chance of overturning the fixture.
After a goalless first half Olympiacos broke the deadlock in the 51st minutes through Youssef El-Arabi who picked out the bottom corner to make it 1-0.
The Gunners could have put themselves back in a more comfortable position when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang raced through one-on-one on goal but as he tried to dink the Olympiacos keeper, his effort sailed wide.
Olympiacos’ efforts to get back into the game was eventually ended when a red card was shown to Ousseyno Ba.
