AEK Athens hosts Bayern Munich in a match from Group E of the UEFA Champions League
AEK Athens hosts Bayern Munich in a match from Group E of the UEFA Champions League. We will take a look at this game in the Greek capital in our vip soccer bets for today.
AEK started their campaign in the Champions League with two consecutive defeats, conceded against Ajax and Benfica. Of course, this is far from surprisinng – AEK are regarded as an underdog in this group. So far they have scored 2 goals in their two matches, but also conceded 6. In their previous game AEK suffered a 2-3 defeat at home against Benfica.
Viktor Klonaridis scored a brace for the home team, but 15 minutes before the end Benfica’s Alfa Semedo decided everything with a winner for the Portuguese team. Before him, Haris Seferovic and Alex Grimaldo scored in AEK’s goal.
Alongside Ajax, but being second with a worse goal difference, Bayern Munich are leading this group with 4 points. The Bavarians won their first game against Benfica in Lisboa, but after this they made a dissapointing 1-1 draw against Ajax at home.
We can say that Bayern’s new manager Niko Kovac is not having the best time since his appointment at the club. Bayern are having some serious difficulties in the Bundesliga and they are obviously not perfect in the Champions League. There’s currently a big pressure on Kovac and some people are even talking that he could get sacked, if things do not improve.
For Kovac and Bayern this match in Athens is a good chance to stabilize and make another step towards improvement. FC Hollywood is the favourite here, while for AEK it would be very difficult to win something from this match. But playing at home, this is their chance to do it. Bayern are not at their best right now, so this is how AEK could make a surprise. That’s what we think in our vip soccer bets.
