A very tough draw, not what I'd hoped for. We have a small chance, but with the 4th round still to come I don't like our chances.

As said before, we we can get an away goal we are a chance, however, without a striker if we go down 2-0 or more I don't see us being able to manage more than 1-0 at home...

We must defend well, it's unfortunate we don't play harder friendly games to prepare.

Fingers crossed, I'll be watching.

PAME AEK!!!

Not the team you want to face first up but that's the luck of the draw. Tough match but we are AEK we fear no one!!! Need to get a striker ASAP otherwise we won't be going anywhere in Europe

For what it's worth..

 

First leg 11 men behind the ball.

Second leg 70K AEK fans and a bit of luck.

Now that we are almost done with bringing players and the game a week away,  I think our team may match it with St Etienne, Im guessing line up will be close to this:

 

                                 Anestis

 

Galo              Kolo              Chygrynsky           Didac

                     

                          Simeos Johanssen

 

                                Mandalos

 

Vargas (Platellas)      Almeida           Barbosa (Pasticho)

 

Getting more confident now..... If we can pinch an away goal that will be massive.

I don't think Almeida will start, will go with Pekhart. I also doubt Pasticho will get any game time either... Will be a very hard game, can't concede early and as you said an away goal and a respectable scoreline would be gold!

Interesting how a few seasons ago we were all Greek and now we only have three, five max in the starting lineup.

Bakasetas doesn't get a run?

Thanks Dikefale I didn't hear him say it, but having Pekhart up top gives us a big target man in the box. I think we may see Almeida in the return leg though and maybe even Pasticho.

 

Damianos I would like to see Bakasetas in the starting team but where do you put him? He cant play #10 Mandalos is there, do we put him on the wing? He will get his time.

 

St Etienne isn't having the best of pre seasons either so we are a real chance I feel, all comes down to 1st leg and what we get from it as at home I have confidence we can get the job done, being our 1st Euro game in a few years and a big crowd will help us.

I'd say Anestis will start until he makes a big mistake, which is bound to happen, then Barkas will get his chance and hopefully nail it.

^^^^ I saw him play a friendly this summer as DM. Opposition wasn't great but he was making nice passes. Not the most mobile. He's played the position in the past.

Will be interesting to see who Ketsbaia goes with upfront.

 

St.Etienne (whether head games or not ) seem to be worried they drew us going what some of their players have come and said, will be a close tie. Really need an away goal/cleansheet, if we can achieve these 1of these or both, we are on a good path

St Eitienne $1.60

Draw $2.60

AEK $4.50

Let?s not underestimate how difficult this is going to be. As Original said, an away goal would be priceless! I can see us putting all our numbers behind the ball.

Does anyone know if it will be on BeIn Australia?

PAME AEK!
