AEK advanced from the Europa League’s group stage undefeated. But the curious fact is that they’ve only lost once and drew 5 times on that period.
That has left them in 2nd place of a group that had Milan, that advanced in 1st place, Rijeka and Austria Vienna.
In the Greek league, AEK is fighting for the lead point by point against PAOK. Right now, they are in 2nd place, sitting 2 points behind their opponent.
Even if the tradition favours Dynamo here, and even if technically Dynamo has a more qualified team, I can’t ignore AEK’s momentum. The team is on a phenomenal streak.
AEK vs Dynamo Kiev – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Their last loss was in October of last year, being currently on a streak of 22 unbeaten matches and 4 consecutive wins.
Of course that I expect a close matchup here, but I believe that AEK will start off with a win at home.
