Champions League Aek Athens vs Benfica
In the 2009/2010 season, AEK Athens and Benfica faced each other in the group stage of the Europa League and after 9 years they found themselves in the most prestigious Champions where they are looking for the first points having lost their debut on the Ajax field and in home with Bayern Munich. An important challenge also in the economy of a possible third place that would allow access to the Europa League from the final sixteenths. AEK Athens of Marinos Ouzounidis, who in the last round of the championship won in Crete against the Ofi for 3-0 thanks to goals from Anastasios Bakasetas, Rodrigo Galo and Ezequiel Ponce, will not be able to dispose of the suspended Livaja and the injured Boye. The Benfica of Rui Vitoria, who in the last round of the championship drew 2-2 on the field of Chaves with a double by Rafa Silva, will be without the injured Jardel, Krovinovic and Joao Felix.
