Place: Athens. The Olympic Stadium of Athens “Spyros Louis” .
Date: on the 14th of August, 2018 (Sunday)
Match start: 19:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Champions League. Qualification stage. 3-rd round.
In their first official match of the season the Greeks have managed to achieve positive result.
Marinos Ouzounidis ‘s team has managed to reign in starting impact of Celts, having allowed the rival to get the goal mouth only 2 times for the first half. One of them was productive and on the 44th minute Klonaridis has answered with the goal.
It is clear, that having evened the score, the guests have built the game in the second half in even more closed style. Actually, they have managed to gain the result, by defending their gates till the very end. Now in a home match the team of Ouzounidis will be also glad with the goalless draw.
Brendan Rodgers’ team, unlike its rival, has already started the national championship and has passed two rounds of qualification of the Champions league. So we can’t say that the team doesn’t have official gaming practice.
If in 5 matches of the Champions League Celtic has got 3 victories and has twice tied matches, then in the Premier League of Scotland the first defeat has already been suffered by the champion in the second round. Heart (0:1) used the moments to the maximum. Also it is necessary to say about the efficiency of the team of Craig Levin — a half of 14 shots got on target.
Celtic has a lot of injured football players.. We still don’t know, whether Dedryck Boyata, Lewis Morgan, Mousa Dembele and Emilio Izaguirre.
Bookmaker coefficients on the match AEK vs. Celtic
AEK to win – odds 2.76;
Draw – odds 2.94;
Celtic to win – 2.65.
Having achieved positive result at the stadium in Glasgow, AEK is doing great now. Now it is enough to defense the gate – and this is what the team can do best of all. We don’t think that guests will manage to break the duel course in their own favor bearing in mind all squad problems of Celts.
