Is Leicester vs AEK Athens on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Europa League fixture tonight


Leicester welcome AEK Athens to the King Power Stadium in the Europa League tonight as they attempt to finish top of Group G.

Brendan Rodgers’ team lead the group on 10 points ahead of their final fixture, with second-placed Braga likewise on 10.

The Foxes therefore must equal or better Braga’s result against Zorya Luhansk this evening, which they will be confident of doing as they come up against bottom Athens, whom they beat 2-1 when they met in October.

What is the team news?

AEK Athens, meanwhile, will be without suspended defender Emmanuel Insua.

Predicted line-ups

Leicester: Schmeichel; Justin, Morgan, Evans, Thomas; Ndidi, Praet, Choudhury; Under, Iheanacho, Barnes

Athens: Tsintosas; Paulinho, Nedelcearu, Hnid, Mitaj; Mantalos, Simoes, Szymanski; Albanis, Oliveira, Garcia

Odds

Leicester: 3/10

Draw: 19/4

Athens: 8/1

Prediction

With Leicester having already qualified for the knockout stages and Athens’ exit from the competition already confirmed, the main motivator here will be the hosts’ desire to finish top of their group. That, coupled with the gulf in quality between Leicester and Athens that has been on display during the group stage, should be enough to see Rodgers’ side get it done here. Leicester 3-0 Athens.
