Leicester are hot favourites to wrap up first place in Europa League Group G by seeing off already-eliminated AEK Athens at King Power Stadium.
The Foxes have already brushed aside Braga 4-0 and Zorya 3-0 on home turf and are unbeaten in their last eight European matches at this venue.
Punters can get 19/20 for City to prevail by more than one clear goal again here and that is our opening Leicester vs AEK Athens prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester missed the chance to secure top spot with a game to spare when beaten 1-0 by Zorya in Zaporizhzhia last week.
However, conditions were tough in the freezing cold Ukrainian city, where the Foxes still looked the more likely winners until conceding late on.
Sunday’s last-gasp Premier League victory at Sheffield United ended a poor little run of results, though, and should have lifted spirits ahead of this contest.
City were the better team when beating AEK 2-1 in Athens on Matchday 2, with Jamie Vardy scoring from the penalty spot and Hamza Choudhury neatly side-footing in.
The Greek outfit fought back bravely, but Cengiz Under hit the crossbar and James Maddison also impressed in a deserved success for Leicester.
That was on a poor pitch and the Foxes are fancied to be even more dominant on a slick King Power Stadium surface.
Looking at the Leicester vs AEK Athens odds, we feel 19/20 for the hosts to lead at half-time and full-time is another solid option.
A Look At AEK Athens’ Betting Odds
AEK kicked off their campaign with a 3-0 drubbing at Braga before losing out to Leicester on Matchday 2.
They bizarrely split emphatic away wins with Zorya, prevailing 4-1 in Ukraine before going down 3-0 on home turf – although they did have Evgeniy Shakhov sent off in the rematch.
Losing 4-2 to Braga in Greece ended any slim hopes of advancing to the knockout rounds and it is hard to see head coach Massimo Carrera putting much emphasis on this match.
Sunday’s 2-1 defeat by Panathinaikos left them fourth in their domestic table, with a big game against Olympiacos coming up as one of three more quick fixtures before a winter break.
Leicester outscored each of their opponents between 15:01 minutes and the half-hour mark in their first three group fixtures.
Let’s go with 23/10 they manage that again here for our final Leicester vs AEK Athens prediction.
