Dundee Utd V AEK FC …PREVIEW!!
Less than 10 hours to go now before AEK begin their European odyssey for 2010. The Scottish Dundee Utd,who finished third behind Rangers and Celtic (who else), are our opponents over this 2 legged qualification for the group stage of the Europa League.
Bajevic is calm ahead of tonight’s game, warning that we must be carefull on Dundee’s set pieces and if we play the way the team showed in Australia during the preseason, we shouldn’t have too much trouble. Let’s not forget we beat Rangers 1-0 during these games, and looked fairly comfortable in disposing of them. Bajevic also states that he is unsure of only one position in the starting eleven,i’d say he’s tossing up between Makos and Papa Boupa for holding midfield role,next to Kafes,as Gentzoglou is out injured.
So,without any major surprises,i expect the starting eleven to be:
Jahic Dellas Manolas Lagos
Kafes Papa Boupa(Makos)
Leonardo Liberopoulos Scocco
Got a feeling he’ll start Refik up front though i’d prefer Blanco, I feel he brings the midfielders into the game better than Djebbour,but there’s not that much between them.
I’m tipping AEK by a goal,maybe 2,don’t think Dundee Utd will be pushovers,especially at their home,but with players like Libe, Scocco, Kafes and co: our class should prevail.
