AEK Athens vs Leicester City - UEFA Europa League Match Preview, Kick-Off Time & Match Prediction.

The UEFA Europa League continues after Tuesday and Wednesday’s UEFA Champion League games which saw a number of Premier League sides in action. On Thursday the 28th of October 2020, AEK Athens vs Leicester City kicks off at 18:55 (BST) on match-day 2 at the Athens Olympic Stadium.

AEK Athens will be coming into this fixture after a 1-0 victory over PAS Giannina in the Greek Super League. Before that game, they lost by three goals to Braga on the opening day of the Europa League. That defeat placed them at 3rd in Group G consisting of Braga, Zorya Luhansk, and of course, Leicester City. They have no points and a GD of -3 after 0W, 0D & 1L. Their form reads; WWLDLW and now coach, Massimo Carrera will be looking for back-to-back victories when his side lines up against English side, Leicester City. The 56-year-old Italian coach who has a 56%-win ratio with the Union ever since his appointment on the 8th of December, 2019 is tipped to line up with a 4-3-3 formation. An attacking trio of Livaja - Karim Ansarifard - Tankovic is expected upfront. Meanwhile, reports say AEK Athens will be without Andre Simoes, Levi Garcia and Damian Szymanski when they take on Leicester City.

After the impressive 3-0 victory over Zorya Luhansk, Leicester City went on to defeat Arsenal in the Premier League by a lone goal from a Jamie Vardy (80’) strike. Against Zorya, on match-day 1 on the Europa League Leicester took the lead after a goal-mouth scramble allowed Kelechi Iheanacho to place the ball for James Maddison (29’) who managed to flick it into the back of the net. Harvey Barnes (45’) doubled the lead at the stroke of half-time before Iheanacho got the Foxes’ third goal sixty-seven minutes into the game. Leicester City have 3 points and a GD of +3 after 1W, 0D & 0L. Their current form reads LWLLWW and now Brendan Rodgers will be aiming for three straight victories on Thursday when he lines up his 4-2-3-1 formation. Jamie Vardy was fit enough to make a cameo against Arsenal from the bench and is expected to start Thursday’s game.

No previous meeting has been recorded between these two sides but a 2-1 victory for Leicester City is predicted at full-time.
