Benfica vs AEK Athens Champions League
Benfica and AEK meet on Wednesday, at 20:00, at the Estádio da Luz, in game to count for the 6th round of group E of the Champions League. Benfica will try to finish this campaign with a home win against AEK Athens, who in turn seeks to avoid the sixth defeat in six challenges. The Portuguese squad have four points and will finish third regardless of the outcome of this game, so will play the Europa League after the winter break. The Reds added just one point in the last three games, losing at home to Ajax (1-0) and Bayern (5-1), having drawn 1-1 at home to the Dutch. The Greeks, however, could not do better than scoring twice against Benfica in a game they lost 2-3. The current record of five consecutive defeats of the Greek team equaled their worst ever record in Europe when they suffered five straight losses in the autumn of 2011. After this match, both teams won their domestic commitments: Benfica won in the Setúbal by 0-1, while the AEK of Athens beat Lamia 2-0. Benfica have won just two of their last nine European games in Lisbon (two draws and five defeats) and failed to score more than one goal in their last 11 European fixtures at home, scoring only eight during that time. We believe in a game with few goals.
