After the positive result in Scotland (1-1), AEK have all the rights to believe that they will be the ones to celebrate their qualification at play offs of Champions League. This result came despite the fact that AEK were playing with 10 players for the whole second half, because of the disputable send off of defensive midfielder Galanopoulos and that they weren't as ready as their opponent. It was AEK's first official game, while for Celtic it was the 6th. At the second leg in OAKA Greeks will surely have the support of their fans and the game will start from a different basis. Marinos Ouzounidis will take advantage of the days left till the game so as to prepare his team to resolve any weaknesses, so we expect to see AEK's team to be even better.
Celtic had to pass through Alashkert and Rosenborg to reach to this point. Teams that are less difficult than AEK, but they helped Celtic to find their tempo. Celtic were more prepared than AEK due to the official games they have already played before and that was pretty obvious in the first leg. However they didn't take advantage of it, despite the fact that they had also one player more in the pitch for the whole second half. They are a team who lose plenty of their strength away.
AEK are definitely the favorites in frond of their crowd. They don't need to be afraid of Celtic and certainly the set of odds are quite chalenging for them.
