Our first opponent for the new season is……
Yep, you guessed it, another derby on the first matchday of the season. And AEK will once again be one of the teams playing in the derby, just like last year. And who will our opponent be? Yep, its Olympiakos!
The game is still a while away but Im sure the likes of Bajevic, Blanco, Scocco, and Kyrgiakos are waiting for their revenge after our unfortunate loss in the Greek Cup Final of 2009. This should be an exciting game, as this fixture always proves to be.
The schedule for next season is up on Superleague Greece’s site. Our first fifteen games are as follows:
Match Round 1 AEK-Olympiakos
Match Round 2 Atromitos-AEK
Match Round 3 AEK-Iraklis
Match Round 4 Pas Giannina-AEK
Match Round 5 AEK-PAO
Match Round 6 Skoda Xanthi-AEK
Match Round 7 AEK-Panthrakikos
Match Round 8 Aris-AEK
Match Round 9 Ergotelis-AEK
Match Round 10 AEK-Larissa
Match Round 11 Kavala-AEK
Match Round 12 AEK-PAOK
Match Round 13 Panionios-AEK
Match Round 14 AEK-Levadeiakos
Match Round 15 Asteras Tripolis-AEK
The team written first is home, while the team written second is away. The matches for rounds 16-30 are in the same order but the home team will be away and the opposite way around.
All of our first three derbies (Oly,PAO,PAOK) are at home for the first round, so this should benefit us a little.

The new teams this year are Atromitos, Pas Giannina, and Kavala.
The only dates released so far are that the first games will be played on the 22nd and 23rd of August.
In other AEK news, Leonardo has been saying that he will quite possibly be playing at AEK next season. Lets just wait and hope that this is in fact true.
