AEK Athens vs Velez
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 28 July 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET,
Venue: Olympic Stadium of Athens “Spiros Louis” (Athens).
AEK Athens is now in a better spot to make a comeback in the fixture after losing the first leg in the UEFA Europa Conference League quarterfinals this season. The Greek contingents will play the host this time against the Bosnia and Herzegovina counterparts Velez on Thursday at Spiros Louis.
The host has been winless in the last three matches with that defeat in the first leg. The Union has lost two of their recent five clashes in contests other than club friendlies in their schedule. They will return home with a one-goal deficit after the 2-1 loss on the road against Velez last time out in ECL.
In the meantime, Velez will be confident with their improved morale after the win in the last game. The visitor had to defeat Coleraine with a 4-2 aggregate earlier to reach the ECL quarterfinals. They have been unbeaten in the last ten fixtures across all major contests with a six-game winning streak recently.

AEK Athens vs Velez Prediction
Even though Velez has a one-goal lead in the fixture, the game is not yet over for the host. Athens is known for their comebacks in major tournaments and having the ground advantage will also back them in the clash.
However, the host has been winless in their recent three home matches in their domestic league. On the contrary, the guest will visit on the back of a double win away from home including the ECL fixture.
Hence, the tip for over 2.5 goals will probably be the best bet as we can expect a high-scoring affair with both teams in a good chance to finish the game with three points.
