Brighton! What a remarkable journey this team has embarked upon. With their sensational sixth-placed finish the Premier League last season, they have ventured into uncharted territory – the European stage. And have they impressed this term? They have won 4 out of their opening 5 league games with utter brilliance. What’s even more fascinating is that all these victories have been sealed with emphatic score lines of 3-1 or 4-1. It seams like a feast of goals awaits us on this historic evening at AMEX Stadium.
As we witness Brighton’s first taste of European glory, it is worth noting that their Boss Roberto De Zerbia already possesses invaluable knowledge and experience from his previous encounters in continental football. And with Brighton’s fluidity and attacking powers, the home fans will be optimistic for a good European debut.
AEK Athens make this trip on the back of a 1-1 draw in their clash with rival side, Olympiacos. However, as the dust settles from that disappointing result, it is clear that AEK Athens Boss, Matias Ameyda, has an exhilarating task ahead of him – ending their poor form against English teams. The odds may seam stuck against them, with 6 consecutive losses and a staggering 16-3 aggregate shoreline in favor of English teams. It’s a daunting challenge indeed.
Nevertheless, if there is one thing we remember about AEK Athens in their journey through the qualifiers, it’s that they thrive under pressure and rise to the occasion when least expected. Their ability to stifle opposition on away grounds has been nothing short of remarkable – especially in the Qualifiers where they showcased their defensive powers time and time again. An impressive 8 clean sheets have been tallied up during their last 12 road trips including Qualifiers. And Matias Almeyda will hope to continue with such record.
