Until its season in its national championship was a little more disputed. But in the end, his dominance in the competition was prevailed with the achievement of yet another title. Their fight is in again managing to reach the group stage of the continent’s biggest competition. Being packed with a spectacular string of positive results, Celtic plays to take advantage of this tough challenge.
In addition to the positive results by itself, it stands out at the great moment traversed by Celtic its dominant form with the two ends, combined, in the field. The team plays forward, but as far as possible, it stays safe in its rear – it did not concede goals in half of the last six games. In front of his passionate fans, the dominance follows absolute. Playing forward, relying on his tactical options, Celtic plays for yet another great result here.
Coach Brendan Rodgers will not be able to count on Moussa Dembele, injured.
Form AEK Athens
Despite winning the title in their disputed national championship, it seems that AEK, having lost the World Cup game to PAOK, has entered a bad phase that has still been difficult to overcome. The AEK had four games without success, causing many doubts in their preseason to exist. However, in the last match before this important duel, the team again won – beat Galatasaray by 3 × 2 as the principal.
Of course, the last victory cited had made the team win in a little more confidence for the duel this afternoon, no doubt. But will it actually make AEK perform better than it was producing? tactically, the staff is well organized. His main gifts are in his defensive part. But to make their attack pay off, the team still needs to go beyond what their organization allows, making them more vulnerable defensively. Betting on the combination defense and counter-attack, AEK can still surprise away from home.
Coach Marinos Ouzounidis will not be able to count on team captain Petros Mantalos injured.
Look, I play hard. The visiting team do not have a great season this season, but when they need to defend themselves at all costs, the team can do well. The home team, on the other hand, is going to have a fantastic start to the season, but will have to break the defensive barriers of the rival. It has the potential for such, but it will not be easy.
The favoritism, despite the difficulties, still belong to Celtic.
Celtic to win !
