Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Buoyed by a brilliant Premier League win over Arsenal, Leicester City will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on AEK in Athens in the Europa League group stages round 2. The Foxes kicked off their Europa League campaign with a routine 3-0 win over Zorya, and they are seen as favourites to win Thursday’s football match. Jamie Vardy has overcome his injury, but the experienced attacker, who scored the winner against Arsenal, is likely to be rested against AEK.
The hosts, on the other hand, suffered a 3-0 loss to Braga in their Europa League opener. The Yellow and Blacks defeated Giannina in the Greek Super League at the weekend, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Thursday’s football match. Even though Brendan Rodgers is unlikely to field the best possible side against AEK, away win should be considered as Leicester have been in a fine form of late.
