The teams are out for Olympiacos vs Aston Villa in the Europa Conference League semi-finals in Greece.

Jose Luis Mendilibar and Unai Emery have named their starting lineups and substitutes ahead of this evening’s vital second leg at Georgios Karaiskakis Stadium in Piraeus.

Tonight’s hosts have a two-goal advantage following a surprise 4-2 win away at Villa Park last week, giving Emery’s men a mountain to climb. It’s not an impossible task, though, and the Villans are confident they can overturn the deficit with a strong performance.

The big news for Villa this evening is Emiliano Martinez is back in the starting lineup following a minor hamstring injury. Youri Tielemans isn’t in the squad at all, though, with Matty Cash in a midfield role to compensate.
