Youssef El-Arabi has hailed the teamwork of Olympiacos after they drew 1-1 with Wolverhampton Wanderers in the first leg of the Europa League Round of 16 with 10 men.

The Greek outfit edged past Arsenal in the previous round on away goals with the Moroccan scoring the winner in extra time.

They were down to 10 men here after Ruben Semedo was given a straight red card in the 28th minute for a professional foul.

Despite the setback, El-Arabi broke the deadlock in the 54th minute only for Pedro Neto to equalise for Wolves 13 minutes after.

"Good Teamwork, we keep Dreaming. Hamdoulilah," El-Arabi posted on Instagram.

The second leg of this fixture has been postponed as the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and affect many people, including football personalities.

These include Olympiacos owner Giannis Moralis, who tested positive and had made contact with personnel in his team and Arsenal as well from the previous fixture.

No Olympiacos player has been tested positive but Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has been confirmed as suffering from the virus, becoming the first football manager to contract it.
