Leicester City will be hoping to make it two wins from as many games in the Europa League group stage when they travel to AEK Athens on Thursday night.

Leicester followed up that win over Zorya with a 1-0 victory at Arsenal in the Premier League and bet365 make them 8/11(1.73) favourites to take the points in Greece.

AEK have won just one of their last four matches in all competitions and are 14/5(3.80) outsiders to kickstart their Europa League campaign on Thursday.

The visitors have not drawn any of their last 12 competitive matches and the online bookmaker offers that particular run to end at 15/4(4.75).

Jamie Vardy came off the bench to score the winner at Arsenal after missing two games with injury but may not start this one, whileRicardo Pereira, Wilfred Ndidi, Caglar Soyuncu and Daniel Amartey are all still out.

AEK will have to do without injured trio Andre Simoes, Levi Garcia and Damian Szymanski.

Leicester ended a two-game losing streak last week with that victory over Zorya and after beating Arsenal on Sunday, Brendan Rodgers will be determined to lead his side to three wins in a row for the first time since January.

The Greek side finished third in the Super League last season and despite opening this campaign by claiming two wins, they have struggled in October with only four points from a possible nine.

Their defeat in Portugal last week was yet another example of their struggling attack, which has now managed just two goals in their last four games in all competitions.

Two victories to nil in a row puts Leicester in good stead to win this one in similar fashion, especially considering AEK’s misfiring front line, and bet365’s 15/8 (2.87) quote on the Foxes to win to nil looks the best bet for this Europa League clash.
