PIRAEUS, Greece - Olympiakos missed a great chance for a result against Bayern Munich on Tuesday as it lost 3-2 at home for the Champions League despite the chances that it got to at least get a draw.

The Greeks scored first, at the 23rd minute of the game, with Youssef El-Arabi who beat Manuel Neuer with a header. Just 11 minutes later though Bayern equalized with Robert Lewandowski who got the "rebound" from a Jose Sa save.

Lewandowski scored again in the 62nd minute of the game and Corentin Tolisso secured Bayern's win with a third goal in the 74th minute with a wonderful shot from a distance. Guilherme dos Santos Torres scored at the 79th minute of the game for Olympiakos who tried hard for an equalizer until the end but that never happened.

The Greek team is now at the bottom of the group, on one point from three games and is visiting Munich in two weeks.
