AEK vs Videoton – UEFA Champions League :On the 2nd leg of the Champions League’s play-off
AEK Athens and Videoton will face off.
The Greeks come into this 2nd leg match with an advantage after having won in Hungarian soil
and that way they are very close to reaching the Champions League’s group stage, something that already didn’t happen for a couple of years due to the huge Olympiakos’ dominance in this country that affected the other Greek teams.
This year, the Greeks can have 2 teams on the group stage, with both of them having an advantage after the 1st leg of the play-off.
AEK Athens already has an advantage going into this 2nd leg since in Hungary they have beaten Videoton by 2-1
but the situation could be even more comfortable, if the Greeks had hold on to the 2-0 they had in their favour and with 1 more player on the pitch.
AEK Athens started on the past weekend their title defence having won at their own stadium, in Athens, against Giannina by 2-0 with goals scored by the Croatian Marko Livaja and the Argentinian Ezequiel Ponce.
For this encounter, AEK Athens has practically their entire roster available, with the absence of the Greek striker Anastasios Bakasetas that saw a red card in the first leg.
Videoton have a very tough task ahead of them after having been defeated at home in the 1st leg of this play-off.
The Hungarians were down to 10-men after Huszti’s sending off at the 23rd minute and that’s where the Greeks started taking advantage of the more spaces they were being granted.
AEK vs Videoton – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Videoton now has to recover from this disadvantage and for now, they have in their favour the fact that they have more experience on this season already, since the Hungarian league is already underway for quite some time.
With 4 matches played on their domestic league, Videoton has 8 points, being 8 points away from the leaders Ferencvaros that meanwhile has 2 more matches played.
On this encounter, I believe that AEK Athens will win and decide this tie, that way sending the Hungarians to the Europa League’s group stage.
