MATCH PREVIEW

Rock-bottom AEK Athens play host to a patchy Bayern Munich, in what could be a fiery affair – there’s been a combined 19 yellow and three red cards in AEK’s three Champions League (CL) home matches so far (including qualifiers).
Those cards have also been accompanied by goals, with both teams scoring in each of those three games. In fact AEK have scored in all seven of their home matches this season (in all competitions), losing just once (W4, D2, L1) – to Benfica on CL matchday two.
That result kept the 12-time Greek champions rooted to the bottom of Group E with zero points, who now go into this encounter with an uninspiring continental record against German sides (W2, D1, L6).
Bayern, on the other hand, have never lost to a Greek team (W7, D2), with six of their seven victories involving three or more Munich goals. However, with just one win in their last five games in all competitions (W1, D2, L2), it’s a unfamiliarly nervy time to be Bayern fan.
On the road, the German champions have won 17 of their last 20 games in all competitions (W17, D1, L2), including a clinical 2-0 win at Benfica in their group stage opener. Just like that CL victory, nine of those 17 wins were accompanied by a clean sheet.
Players to watch: AEK’s Viktor Klonaridis scored twice against Benfica – his team’s only CL goals so far. Reliable striker Robert Lewandowski got the brace that helped Bayern back to winning ways against Wolfsburg at the weekend.
Stat attack: AEK have conceded in the first-half just once at home this season – that was against Benfica.
Bayern have scored exactly two goals in five of their last six CL away games.
Just one team has scored in six of Bayern’s seven away fixtures this term (in all competitions).
