AEK Athens FC – Benfica : Preview & Prediction
AEK Athens FC have just ended this weekend with a complicated series of 2 consecutive defeats in the Champions League and in the league. Indeed, the current leader of the Greek championship defeated the OFI Heraklion (3-0) away this Saturday a few days after being corrected by Ajax Amsterdam (3-0) in the Netherlands and on the field of PAOK Salonika (2-0). This match against Benfica is of great importance for the Greek team in its fight for qualification. Benfica, current runner-up for FC Porto, lost his lead after his draw at Chavès (2-2) conceded after extra time (90 + 4). This poor performance will animate a feeling of revolt on the part of the Portuguese for this European meeting, they who remained on 1 success against Desportivo Aves (2-0) before this parity score. Defeated against Bayern Munich (0-2) at home, the club Lisbon should not miss its 2nd European meeting under penalty of saying goodbye to the qualification.
AEK Athens FC have recorded 2 defeats in their last 3 matches.
Benfica is undefeated since 2 games.
Two teams defeated on the first day … Woe to the loser!
remains on 1 draw at Fenerbahçe (1-1) and 1 success on the pitch of PAOK Thessaloniki (4-1) in previous rounds.
AEK Athens remain on 1 draw against the modest team of Videoton (1-1) in this C1.
Benfica Lisbon must take at least one point of this move to hope to stay in the race for qualification. The victory in Greece can not be excluded either.
