Bayern vs AEK: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
A vital game in group E can see German giants Bayern Munich take a giant leap to the knockout stages with victory over an AEK side still seeking their point.
Bayern Munich host struggling AEK Athens on Wednesday night and will be confident of securing their first home win of the 2018/19 Champions League group campaign.
If they do, they will also take another huge stride in securing a slot in the top two leading Benfica by four points and sharing seven with Ajax at the top.
For AEK, it is more of trying to upset the balance somewhat after three straight defeats has left the Greek giants without a point.
However, Portuguese side Benfica are within touching distance making a Europa League slot still a possibility.
However, it is likely head coach Marinos Ouzounidis may opt to focus on chasing down POAK at the top of the Greek Super League.
Considering Bayern has never lost and kept seven straight clean sheets against Greek opponent, expect something of a comfortable night in Munich for the home side with a repeat of Bayern’s 2-0 win they recorded in the reverse fixture.
