AEK Athens welcome Leicester City to the Greek capital in the UEFA Europa League group stages on Thursday. Leicester will be looking to make it back-to-back wins in the competition.

AEK Athens Form


AEK Athens were in a bit of a rut prior to their 1-0 victory over PAS Giannina in the Greek Super League at the weekend. That result ended a run of three games without a win in all competitions. 

Karim Ansarifard’s first-half penalty was enough to secure a much-needed three points in the league, as AEK bounced back from their Europa League woes.

AEK got off to the worst possible start to their Europa League campaign when losing 3-0 away to Sporting Braga in Portugal last week. A second consecutive loss would then leave them with an uphill battle to qualify for the knockout stages.

AEK Athens Team News


Andre Simoes and Damian Szymanski are both out with thigh and achilles injuries respectively.

Leicester City Form


Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City have responded in perfect fashion to their home losses to West Ham United (3-0) and Aston Villa (1-0) with back-to-back victories in the Europa League and Premier League. 

Leicester’s turnaround in form started with a 3-0 win over Zorya in the Europa League, a result which came via goals from James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Kelechi Iheanacho.

The win gave the Foxes impetus for the weekend’s 1-0 win at Arsenal in the Premier League. Jamie Vardy came on from the bench to clinch the winner 10 minutes from time at the Emirates Stadium. 

Rodgers’ side now sit 4th in the Premier League table and can put themselves into pole position in this Europa League group with a win in Athens.

Leicester City Team News


Leicester City will again be without Caglar Soyuncu, Ricardo Pereira, Daniel Amrartey and Wilfred Ndidi on Thursday.

Verdict

AEK Athens have their work cut out against a Leicester City side that will be filled with confidence. I’m tipping Leicester to make it two wins from two in the Europa League group stages.

Kelechi Iheanacho is likely to get another chance in attack and is value in the goalscorer markets.
