Team News: AEK Athens
Availability isn’t a big problem, with just the sole fitness concern for the AEK Athens manager Manolo Jiménez to be concerned about from a near full-strength group of players. Efthymios Christopoulos (Adductor problems) misses out.

Owing to a completely injury-free squad available for selection, PAOK boss Pablo García does not have any fitness worries whatsoever before this match.
It seems to us that PAOK and AEK Athens could find scoring goals difficult here.
