FC Bayern München vs AEK Athens Live

AEK are back in the Champions League proper for the first time since 2006/07 after beating Scottish champions Celtic and Hungary’s Vidi in qualifying. The Greek champions currently sit fourth in the country’s Super League after a 2-0 win at Apollon Smyrnis on Saturday

Thomas Müller has been in a goalscoring funk for the last two months. A strong performance from the German international in Athens against AEK could start to get his season, and Bayern Munich’s, back on track.

That is how much Müller’s form has dropped off. After a goal and an assist in his first two league games, he has zero goal contributions in Bayern’s last seven matches. James Rodriguez and Serge Gnabry have provided a spark in the meantime, and both started over Müller over the weekend.

But Bayern’s Champions League matchup against Greek side AEK Athens on Tuesday is a great opportunity for Müller to rediscover his goalscoring quality. After getting the weekend off, there’s a good chance Müller gets the start in the Champions League, and Bayern need him to return to form.

AEK continued a promising start to the defence of their title on Saturday, beating winless Apollon Smyrni 2-0, courtesy of goals by attackers Petros Mantalos and Marko Livaja. That result earned them their fifth win in seven league games, though consistency will be vital if they are to close the gap on rivals PAOK, who have six points on them on top of the table.

​Bayern, meanwhile, beat Wolfsburg to keep a place in the top four of the German Bundesliga and they too know of the importance of maintaining that form to close the four-point gap between them and top-of-the-table ​Borussia Dortmund.

The Bayern forward was in top form on Saturday, netting twice in the Bundesliga and providing an assist for his side at the Volkswagen Arena. The objective won’t be any different for this game against AEK, meaning Chygrynskiy’s positional awareness, ability to read the game and tackle will need to be top drawer.
