Leicester targeting top spot in Group G
Leicester City are already assured of a place in the next phase of the Europe League, though the Foxes still need to produce the goods at home to AEK Athens this week to top Group G and secure a potentially easier draw for the Last 32.
Standing in City’s way are an Athens outfit that were toppled in four of their five group matches so far, and AEK’s dismal defending in the competition sees them carry one of the tournament’s worst defensive record into Thursday’s contest.
With seven goals in just two home matches in the group so far, Leicester have already shown they possess enough attacking verve to blow their continental opponents away in Europa League games at the King Power Stadium this term, and Brendan Rodgers side should enjoy similar success against an Athens team with little play for.
The match result odds understandably lack value this week, though backing Leicester at -1 in the handicap arena looks a much more tempting option at the prices quoted, while our correct score prediction tips the Foxes to hit another three Europa League goals against an Athens side that conceded seven times in their last two outings in the competition.
