AEK Athens vs Wolfsburg
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Olympic Stadium of Athens.
The Wolves are from the prestigious Bundesliga – considered to be one of the absolute best leagues in whole of Europe. They regularly lock horns with some of the best teams in the world, and are much-more experienced in high-pressure scenarios.
In fact, even the Europa League seems to be a bit of an underachievement for the team, as their usual target would have been the Champions League.
Anyhow, they are one win away from inserting themselves into the Europa mix, and the Yellow-Blacks from the Greek Super League hardly seem to be the ideal opponent to deny them such an opportunity.
The prime reason would be the fact that the Greek top flight is just one of the mediocre leagues in Europe. On top of that, Massimo Carrera’s men were not even the best in their domestic competition, as they had to settle for a third-place finish – 15 points below the toppers.
Likely, expect a Wolfsburg win this Thursday.

- This is the first face-to-face encounter between the two teams.
AEK Athens vs Wolfsburg: Prediction
The Yellow-Blacks were winless in four of their former seven overall games, and they remained so in six of their former eight appearances at home.
On the other hand, their counterparts are unbeaten in their last eight overall match-ups (of which six were wins), and they had scored four or more goals in three of their preceding six games.
On the road, they are on a five-fixture unbeaten run, and of these four were wins. In fact, the combined scorecard for these five clashes were 3-16, in favor of Oliver Glasner’s men.
On top of that, and most importantly, the Wolves have smelt blood now. They are not going to let a team from Greece stand in their way to European qualification. By all means, expect a Wolfsburg win.
