After earning a smash-and-grab win over Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday, Leicester travel to Greece with a determined AEK Athens their next Europa League test.

Jamie Vardy returned from a calf injury, extending his impressive goalscoring record against the Gunners, while there were impressive displays by Youri Tielemans and new signing Wesley Fofana.

With that in mind, will Brendan Rodgers rotate the pack on Thursday or largely keep things the same against an AEK team who lost rather convincingly away to Braga on MD1? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

AEK Athens vs Leicester City Betting Tips

Vardy marked his return from injury with his 109th Premier League goal against a familiar foe. Tielemans and Under – who combined to create the finish – should start on Thursday. Vardy meanwhile, will be monitored and presumably rested as a precautionary measure with the possibility of injury aggravation high.

That paves the way for Kelechi Iheanacho, an unused substitute in north London, to continue where he left off last week. He scored and had two assists during their 3-0 win over Zorya Luhansk and is enjoying a renaissance with the Foxes after reports suggested he’d be sold last summer.

The same goes for James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, albeit for different reasons. Maddison signed a new extension to snub transfer speculation – while Barnes was linked with league champions Liverpool over the summer.

Leicester have an ever-growing core group of determined players attracting interest and it’s one that will relish facing AEK – winless in three before Sunday. They squeaked past PAS Giannina after Karim Ansarifard’s first-half penalty.

The Iran international, 30, has made his claim to start after being hooked shortly after the hour mark during last week’s Braga defeat.

AEK Athens vs Leicester City Correct Score Predictions

It’s easy to forget Leicester should really be in the Champions League, not Europa League, given their domestic achievements pre-lockdown last season. Group G is winnable and as such, this away trip is a necessary test ahead of their big double-header next month – MD3 and 4 against Braga.
