AEK Athens

AEK Athens could be without the services of Cican Stankovic, Levi Garcia and Ehsan Hajisafi this week, though Domagoj Vida, Nordin Amrabat and Steven Zuber should all come back into the team having been rested at the weekend.

Predicted Lineup for AEK Athens: Athanasiadis – Sidibe, Vida, Mkoukoudi, Mohammadi – Pindea, Szymanski, Amrabat, Zuber, Gacinovic – Van Weert

Royal Antwerp

Otwin De Wolf, Kobe Corbanie, Davino Verhulst and Bjorn Engels are all rated as doubtful for Royal Antwerp ahead of Wednesday's game. Jellie Bataille is suspended having been sent off in the first leg.

Predicted Lineup for Royal Antwerp: Butez – De Laet, Alderweireld, Coulibaly, Avila – Keita, Vermeeren, Ondrejka, Ekkelenkamp, Balikwisha – Janssen

Player to Watch – Vincent Janssen

Vincent Janssen is still just 29 and his torrid time with Tottenham earlier in his career already feels like a lifetime ago. The Dutch striker netted the winning goal for Antwerp in the first leg, taking his early tally for the campaign up to five. Janssen could be a difference-maker again on Wednesday.
