Team News: AEK Athens
Niclas Eliasson (Fibula Fracture) and Milad Mohammadi (Groin Injury) won’t be available for AEK Athens boss Matías Almeyda.
Team News: Aris FC
Due to a completely injury-free squad available to select from, the Aris FC manager Alan Pardew does not have any fitness worries whatsoever coming into this match.
We’re inclined to think that AEK Athens should get a lot of shots on goal and make them count.
Conversely, Aris FC will be up against it to score themselves but we can see them converting at least once here, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a pretty comfortable 3-1 win for AEK Athens at full-time.
