AEK Athens v Leicester team news

AEK Athens: Damien Szyamanski, Levi Garcia and Andres Simoes are nearing their return but unfortunately the visit of Leicester comes too soon for them to be available.

With the team struggling for goals, the likes of Marko Livaja and Karim Ansirafard need to step up and make themselves counted.

Leicester: Jamie Vardy, who returned to the fold on Sunday evening to net the winning goal versus Arsenal, will likely be handed more game time in a bid to get valuable minutes under his belt.

Wilfried Ndidi and Riccardo Pereira remain unavailable.
