Both sides are confident in front of goal and are in good stead to continue with the feat when they clash on Thursday

AEK Athens square up with AC Milan at the Olympic Stadium on Thursday night for their Group D Europa League encounter.

Having secured five points in the three group games played thus far, Manolo Jiménez’s men will look to topple their visitors and brighten their chances for an early qualification to the knock-out stage of the competition.

They will be coming into this tie on the back of their 1-0 win over Panionios in the Greek Super League and a 7-0 thrashing of Apollon Larissa in the Greek Cup.
