21/9: Daily Predictions: Brighton begins European sojourn against AEK

Home » 21/9: Daily Predictions: Brighton begins European sojourn against AEK

Football Predictions

High-flying Brighton will begin their European journey at home when they host AEK of Greece at their Ammex backyard.

Roberto De Zerbi’s team comes into the tie after a morale-boosting win over Manchester United and after resting a chunk of his first-team players, this is a tie that will test his squad depth after signing sparingly in the summer.  It is hard to guess which lineup they will play on Thursday but one should expect good football from the Premier League side.

AEK were Greek champions last season and comes into the Europa League after failing in the preliminary qualification stage of the Champions League. They have the experience in such games and won’t be pushovers. The fact that they held Olympiacos to a 1-1 draw over the week tells a lot about their abilities.

H2H/Stats

The clubs have never met before in European competition.

Team News

For Brighton, Danny Welbeck could make way for youngster Evan Ferguson, while Ansu Fati could get the chance instead of Adam Lallana.

AEK have their problems too. Experienced center-back Domagoj Vida got one hit during the international break and he could last only 45 minutes in a derby against Olympiacos. We should expect Vida to start on Thursday in Brighton, but it is hard to tell if he will be able to play all 90 minutes.

Probable Line-Ups 

Brighton XI: Steele (GK), Veltman, van Hecke, Dunk, Lamptey, Gross, Fati, Dahoud, Adingra, Ferguson, Mitoma

AEK XI: Stankovic (GK), Rota, Vida, Moukoudi, Mohammadi, Eliasson, Jonsson, Szymanski, Zuber, Araujo, Ponce

Verdict

AEK Athens have won just one of their last 19 matches in major European competition (seven draws and 11 losses), losing 10 of their last 11, and come against a Brighton side who have been scoring freely since the season started.
