Team News: AEK Athens
Efthymios Christopoulos (Adductor problems) and Dmytro Chygrynskyi (Unknown Injury) are unavailable for AEK boss Manolo Jiménez.
Team News: Olympiacos
Owing to an otherwise full-strength squad, there is just the one fitness worry for the Olympiacos boss Pedro Martins to contend with. Avraam Papadopoulos (Adductor problems) misses out for this game.
Our feeling is that AEK Athens could find themselves struggling to see themselves scoring against this Olympiacos outfit who we think should get the vital goal that wins it.
We’re therefore expecting a good battle with a 0-1 advantage for Olympiacos at the end of the 90 minutes.
Looking forward to watching this one unfold.
