In the previous round, the Greek club easily beat Viktoria Plzen. In this second match against the Turks, coach Pedro Martins must adopt a more dominant strategy, benefiting the possession of the ball and the attacks organized by the flanks. Masouras, Podence and Guerrero will be the most advanced men in the attack front of the Greeks, while Guilherme, Bouchalakis and Valbuena are the owners of the midfield. For this match, the local coach cannot count on Lázaros Christodoulopoulos and Fortounis, both with physical problems.

The Turks of Basaksehir arrive at this second game after a 0-1 defeat against Olympiakos, thus being in a very difficult situation. In this second match against Olympiakos, coach Okan Buruk must keep his team in 4-4-2, favoring a more direct style of play, across the flanks: Robinho and Visca are responsible for transporting the ball to the attack. On the other hand, Enzo Crivelli is very powerful and competent in completion. Out of this game will be Kahveci and Chedjou, both suspended.
