AEK Athens vs Milan
UEFA Europa League
Date: 2nd November 2017
Kick off at 18:00 UK /19:00 CET
Venue: Olympiako Stadio Spyros Louis (Athens).
The top spot in the Group D is on the line on Thursday when AEK Athens host Milan in the replay of the match played two weeks ago at San Siro.
The victory for the Greeks would see them overtake Rossoneri at the top of the group standings.
The Union took advantage of Milan’s poor form to hold on to a goalless draw at San Siro and make it two draws and a win after the opening three fixtures of the campaign.
The team led by the Spanish manager will come into the rematch with an improved atmosphere after claiming a super important 0-1 win away at Panionios in the weekend’s Super League action.
The Italians found the exit to their crisis last Wednesday when they notched four past Chievo at Bentegodi, but they quickly returned to the old habits on Satu7rday with the 0-2 loss to the defending champions Juventus.
Vincenzo Montella’s men were absolutely powerless in the final third against Bianconeri who controlled the game from the very beginning.
Nikola Kalinic made the start after netting the goal against Chievo, but he could not do much do cause damage to Juve’s defensive line.
AEK Athens vs Milan: Head to head
The two sides met each other in the group phase of Champions League back in the 2006/07 season when each of the team picked up the victory in front of their fans.
It is interesting to note that none of the previous three head to head meetings between the two teams saw both sides on target.
AEK Athens vs Milan: Prediction
AEK seem to have found the winning formula at the back and they will be a very tough nut to crack for the out-of-form Milan side here.
We probably expect a similar game to the one played two weeks ago and we can just hardly see three or more goals here.
