Brighton are certainly one of the most entertaining teams at the beginning of the 2023/24 season. They opened the season with 12 points from the first five Premier League rounds, so at the moment, Brighton are 5th on the table with three points behind the league leader, Manchester City. Last weekend, Brighton won 3-1 on the road against Manchester United. That was another great game from Roberto De Zerbi's team. It is hard to guess in which lineup Brighton will play on Thursday versus the AEK, but with great form goes great confidence too, so we could see another impressive performance from De Zerbi's side. 

AEK last season finished as the Greek champions. They were trying to get into the Champions League the whole summer, but eventually, AEK slipped in the last step against Antwerp. In their national league, AEK started with five points from three league rounds. Last weekend, AEK played 1-1 at home against Olympiacos. That game was fairly even, so it is no wonder the teams split the points. It is certain that AEK will take this game versus Brighton seriously, but it is hard to tell if they are able to resist a strong De Zerbi team. 

Brighton vs AEK pick: Brighton to win and cover AH -1.5 spread

Brighton are one of the hottest teams in Europe at the moment. They scored 15 goals in five matches this season. On the other hand, AEK allowed nine goals in the previous six games in all competitions. Brighton to win and cover AH -1.5 spread should be the best bet for this tie.

Brighton team news

English teams often tend to play with the mixed lineups in Europa or Conference leagues. We can expect Roberto De Zerbi to rotate the squad, but that will hardly help AEK. Instead of Danny Welbeck, we could see Evan Ferguson, while Ansu Fati could get the chance instead of Adam Lallana.

AEK team news

AEK have their problems too. Experienced center-back Domagoj Vida got one hit during the international break and he could last only 45 minutes in a derby against Olympiacos. We should expect Vida to start on Thursday in Brighton, but it is hard to tell if he will be able to play all 90 minutes.
