EUROPE: Champions League – Group Stage – Round 2

 

  • With history firmly against sides that lose their first two CL group games, this match (the third-ever encounter between them) already has real potential as a six-pointer in the race to avoid elimination.
  • Despite winning just one of their last three matches, AEK have lost just two of their past ten games across all competitions (W6, D2, L2). Though hard to break down. It is not at the expense of attacking endeavour, with the Greek champions scoring 2+ goals in five of those contests.
  • Scoring the first goal might be key for AEK in this game. They have gone undefeated on the last seven occasions they have done so (W6, D1). While going winless in the last three games where they have shipped the first goal (D1, L2).
  • Benfica’s defeat against Bayern Munich had an air of inevitability about it, but they can take heart from the fact that it was their lone defeat in ten games, as part of a ten-game record that reads: W5, D4, L1. They have scored 2+ goals in six of those games.
  • Players to watch: Ezequiel Ponce

(AEK) has three goals in five Greek Super League appearances, while Pizzi has four goals in six Primeira Liga matches for Benfica.

Stat attack: All of AEK’s last five matches (in all competitions) have been settled to nil either way.
  • AEK have played six times against Portuguese sides in European competitions, winning two and losing the remaining four. They have scored 11, and conceded 11 across those matches.
  • Benfica’s all-time record against Greek opponents reads: W6, D1, L6, scoring 15 goals and conceding 17. They have, however, lost five of their seven matches in Greece (W2, L5).
  • Both previous H2H meetings have seen the home side on the day win.
