Greek Champions AEK got back to the three pointers, after their huge away win 0-3 against OFI. The were superior during the whole game. Their fast goal helped them to reach to a comfortable win. Bakatestas, Galo and Ponce were the scorers. The game with Lamia for the Cup was cancelled and so AEK had more time to prepare for this one. In the 1st round of Champions League group stage they were defeated 3-0 from Ajax in Netherlands, although they managed to resist until the halftime. Suspended Livaja and Lopes (who had a muscle strain in Saturday's game and won't be available for a long time), as well as injured Lucas Boye, Alef and Christos Albanis won't be at Marinos Ouzounidis disposal. In contrast, Tasos Bakatestas served his suspension and is back on the starting line. The upcoming game is the big clash against Olympiakos in home.
On the other hand, Benfica made some mistakes the previous Thurday and so they drew 2-2 in Chaves' home. That threw them from the top of the table and now they are one step behind Braga. In the previous round they were defeated 0-2 from Bayern Munchen in home. The injured Jardel, Gabriel, Joao Felix, Samaris and Tyronne Ebuehi didn't travel to Athens. On contrary, their attackers Eduardo Salvio and Facundo Ferreira will be on the squad. Their upcoming league game is against Porto in home.
After the defeats of both AEK and Benfica in the first round, whoever lose tonight, will be with the back against the wall. I expect from AEK to play offensively. Despite the fact that they have many absences, they play in home with the support of their fans and they have to try their chances for a positive result. Benfica are a team plenty of quality. I am closer to back home win, definitely there is a considerable possibility for a draw.
