Leicester City vs AEK Athens
UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 10 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium (Leicester).
Leicester was caught by surprise in the previous two EL clashes that they have ended up with a winless streak in that period, including a 1-0 loss on the road against Zorya last time out. However, the Foxes have qualified for the playoffs this season in the tournament.
Having won only one of their five appearances in the Europa League group fixtures this term, AEK Athens doesn’t pose a huge threat to the home team. They are on a two-game losing streak, following a 2-4 loss at home against Braga in the previous EL encounter.
Leicester City vs AEK Athens Head-to-head (h2h)
- Their previous encounter in 2020 EL gave a 1-2 away win for the Foxes.
- The host has not played against a club from their opponents’ country.
- The visitor has lost their recent four meetings with any other English clubs.
- Athens has scored no goals in their last two EL clashes with other English teams.
Leicester City vs AEK Athens Prediction
Leicester had some troubles in the EL as of late, but they are back on track. The 1-2 away win in the Premier League against Sheffield United last time out in their overall schedule might have improved the morale of the players ahead of the EL fixture.
The host enjoys the ground advantage and also knows to use it in the middle. With their 2.4 goals per match average in the EL schedule, expect nothing less of a high-scoring affair at King Power Stadium on Thursday night. So, the tip for over 2.5 goals will come in handy to yield decent returns in the encounter.
The home win in full-time will probably be the best bet for the punters in the clash. Having lost only one game so far in the group fixtures, the Foxes are more likely the favorites to win. Besides, AEK has a poor form in overall league performance this season.
