AEK Athens vs Rijeka– Europa League: AEK Athens hosts the Croatians of Rijeka this Thursday on a Europa League match…
The tone of this group D is balance. Many would imagine that Milan would be isolated in the lead of this group, but that wasn’t exactly what happened.
In reality, with only 2 rounds left for the end of the group stage, all teams still have a chance to qualify and Milan doesn’t have their spot in the next stage ensured.
Milan’s great chasers have been the Greeks of AEK.
In fact, the almighty powerful Italian team couldn’t beat the Greeks in the two matches they played in this competition. Both in Italy and in Greece, the duels between these two sides have ended in draws.
AEK has 6 points conquered, thanks to a win and 3 draws, and therefore they sit in 2nd place, 2 points behind AC Milan who has 8.

Rijeka so far has proven to be the most fragile team of the group. The Croatian team sits in last place on the group table with only 3 points conquered on their only win, over Austria Vienna.
Besides that, they lost every match, including on the last round where they ended up battered by this Austria Wien at home in what was a surprising defeat.
AEK Athens vs Rijeka – Betting Tip and Prediction:
For everything that we have seen so far in this competition, I believe it is safe to say that AEK is a more consistent team than Rijeka.
And not only for their position in the group but for the performance against the strongest team in the group and the football presented.
Playing at home and in a good moment of form, I believe that the Greeks will get the win with more or less difficulty, since the Greek teams aren’t always able to win comfortably.
