Olympiacos vs AEK Athens Match Preview
One of Greek football’s biggest derbies is on tap for Sunday when Olympiakos host AEK at the Karaiskakis Stadium. Olympiakos are aiming to claim their 38th league title and can do so with a victory over their bitter rivals. Ernesto Valverde’s team allowed PAOK to come from behind and beat them last weekend and had to wait at least another week before celebrating their return to the top of Greek football.
AEK are gearing up to take on their nearby opponents with perhaps their best form of the season. After three consecutive league wins, AEK continued their impressive form with a 1-0 victory at PAOK in a second leg Greek Cup semifinal this week which earned them a spot in April’s Greek Cup final. Manolo Jimenez has endured loads of criticism in the last couple months, but it appears that his team are finally coming good in the most crucial point of the season.
