This is the third match in the Europa League, group A for both teams. Leverkusen and FC Zurich have won both of their games and are on 6 points. AEK and Ludogorets are without points and need a win here desperately to have any chance of going through.

AEK Larnaca had a very strong qualifying campaign but in the group stages they are losing from the fact that they cannot play at their own AEK Arena where they played during the qualifying.  Still AEK was unlucky to lose to FC Zurich 0-1 with a penalty in the opening match of the group stages. The loss to Leverkusen was expected but AEK gave the Germans a good fight losing 4-2. In the domestic league AEK has only played four games winning three and drawing one. Even though they are undefeated, they have not played that well. They have a problem with the attacking midfielder position as they do not create enough chances to score goals. They are good in counter attacking and getting the ball to run, but building slow attacks is not that effective.

Ludogorets lost 2-3 to Leverkusen at home and 1-0 away from home to FC Zurich so they are also on 0 points in the Europa league. In their domestic league they are in good form, leading the league after 12 rounds with 9 wins, 2 draws and only 1 loss. Ludogorets has a lot more experience in the European competitions than AEK. Last season Ludogorets made it to the last 32 where they were eventually beaten by AC Milan 4-0 on aggregate. This experience could give them the edge here. As a negative, Ludogorets just changed their head coach and this will be the debut for new head coach Radoslav Zdravkov.

AEK team news:

AEK will be without Antoniades, Nacho Cases, Lamban and Roushias from this match. None have played that much this seaosn.

Ludogorets team news:


Ludogorets is the more experienced team so our pick is Ludogorets draw no bet.
