AEK ATHENS FC VS CELTIC PREVIEW & PREDICTION
Tuesday, at 19:00, Greeks at AEK Athens receive Celtic’s visit to the second round of the Preliminary Round 3 of the UEFA Champions League. It was 1-1 on Celtic Park in a Scottish-dominated match that remained numerically inferior and could not win the victory after being matched. With his goal, AEK hopes to make a perfect match.
On Spiros Louis, Celtic will have a hard job without the injured base players. They are missing Bitton, Boyata, Compper, Dembele, Izaguirre and Morgan, almost half the team! AEK will make a cautious game because it has to protect the advantage taken after the tournament. Brendan Rodgers knows he can not attack in the first minute, but the Scots are forced to score to go further. The most likely score at the break here is 0-0.
AEK has not played official matches this season and the physical form of the Greeks is not yet optimal. Which means that the Athenians will conserve their resources in the first half by practicing a simple game of assault with a crowded defense. We would not be surprised to see a 4-5-1 settlement for AEK, as the goals scored hard in friendly matches: 0-0 with Larnaca and Atromitos.
Celtic is far from being in an impressive form, even though it has pretty easily eliminated Rosenborg in the previous round. The White Bears come after a 0-1 on the Hearts field, but Rodgers has helped out the basic footballers, especially given the batch problems they have had. The tournament was virtually played on a single gate with a ratio of 18-6 for Celtic. AEK will once again accept Celtic’s dominance, knowing that a 0-0 qualifies her in the play-off! If guests do not score in the first 15 minutes, we have a good chance of making a profit!
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / NO @ 1.68
