The pressure is building on United boss David Moyes. Manchester United have looked like a shadow of their previous selves this season. For about two decades fans across the world have come to expect United to be one of the top teams in the world, and one of the most difficult teams to beat out there.

However, this season they have disappointed in a massive way – not only domestically, but also now in Europe.

Olympiakos fans and players were all left stunned by the manner in which United lost the first leg, and not many were expecting such a toothless performance from the English team, who won the Premier League less than 12 months ago.

But a 0-2 defeat in Athens has left their Champions League hopes on the brink and it would take a display like the United of old to overturn the deficit tonight – but so common an occurrence has United's failings been this season, that not many are expecting United to come back in this tie.

In team news, United will be missing Chris Smalling and Jonny Evans tonight, as they are out with a hamstring and calf injury respectively.

Olympiakos coach Michel played down his team's advantage coming into the game, saying, "We aim to do what we always do and that is concentrate on our own game. We know our opponents very well and we know that 2-0 is not a serious advantage.

"We need to score to make sure we make it difficult for them as we know that United have a strong desire to turn the tie around."

The Greek side should be confident – they managed to retain their Super League title at the weekend with five games to spare. United meanwhile have low confidence; they were destroyed by long-time rivals Liverpool 0-3 at the weekend, with most agreeing that the score line could have been a lot more. What will worry United fans is the manner of their losses right now – United are being played off the park by teams they ordinarily have become accustomed to outplaying over the past 20 years.

Moyes has said, "Results have been disappointing but it is not through lack of trying. We have made a lot of opportunities and not taken them and that has been the biggest difference this year."
