On Thursday, AEK Athens and Brighton will play each other in the Europa League

Brighton’s maiden European campaign got off to a poor start when they were defeated 3-2 at home by AEK Athens, then drew away from Marseille away from home.

But after defeating Ajax twice in a row, they are about to enter the knockout stage, and Roberto De Zerbi’s team will be hoping to exact revenge for that first-round defeat. However, AEK’s three-point deficit against the Premier League team means that a victory for the Greek champions would make the group too tight to declare.

Kick-off time: 30-11-2023, GMT: 5:45 P.m. GMT (11:15 p.m IST)

Athens’ form across all competitions: W-L-W-D-L-W

Brighton’s form across all competitions: W-D-D-W-D-W

Players to watch

Brighton: Ansu Fati

Ansu Fati, who netted in back-to-back Europa League games against Ajax, is back among Brighton & Hove Albion’s goal scorers. The Barcelona attacker has been hitting the goal progressively after a sluggish start to life in England. Out of 12 appearances, he has scored four goals, but only five of those have come during Roberto de Zerbi’s coaching.

Match facts

  • In seven of the team’s previous nine home Europa League games, AEK Athens have scored one goal or more.
  • In their last two away Europa League games, Brighton netted two goals or more.
  • In their last ten home Europa League games, AEK Athens have not been able to maintain a clean sheet.

Head-to-head

Brighton 2-3 AEK Athens – Europa League, September 21, 2023.

In their last three home games against English teams in Europe, AEK Athens has suffered defeats to Nottingham Forest in 1978, Everton in 2009, and Leicester City in 2020.

Players and injury news

Matías Almeyda, the manager of AEK Athens, is without Jens Jönsson (unknown injury), Levi García (unknown injury), Harold Moukoudi (unknown injury), and Paolo Fernandes (Achilles heel issues). Stavros Pilios, Alexander Callens, Tom van Weert, Konstantinos Chrysopoulos, Zini, and Paolo Fernandes are among the suspended players receiving a suspension for this match.

Roberto De Zerbi, the manager of Brighton, is currently dealing with fewer team alternatives. Danny Welbeck (hamstring injury), Kaoru Mitoma (unknown injury), Pervis Estupiñán (muscle injury), and Julio Enciso (meniscus rupture) are all unable to play.

Stankovic (GK), Sidibe, Vida, Callens, Mohammadi, Manntalos, Szymanski, Pineda, Eliasson, Zuber, Gacinovic

Brighton Predicted lineup:

Prediction

In our opinion, AEK Athens should have plenty of opportunities to score against this Brighton & Hove Albion team, even though one goal might not be as many as the ones they give up.

Prediction: AEK Athens 1-2 Brighton
