AEK Athens vs Leicester City Prediction
AEK Athens have not hit top gear this season so far and have been misfiring in front of the goal in recent fixtures. They were clueless against Braga in their previous Europa League outing and if they do not step up their game on Thursday, they will get hammered by the Foxes.
Despite the home advantage, the Yellow-Blacks might struggle to contain Leicester, who will head into the game with a bounce in their step after their 1-0 away win over Arsenal.
So, all things considered, a win for the visitors looks to be the most likely outcome.
