Bayern is sitting jointly at the helm of the group with Ajax, who must be surprised that they are moving in the same circles as Europe’s finest.
The Germans gave yet to hit top gear this season, but thy are doing just fine both in the league and the CL edition. There is no reason to think that they are in any danger, but will be keen to make a point by moving to the top of their group.
AEK Athens are on the other hand, deader than dead rubber. They have managed to collect the sum total of 0 points in the Champions League this season. All they want now is to bow out with a modicum of dignity and focus on their local league as they rue their indifferent form. Few will however find them reproachable, seeing as they are in a group where every team is at least two cuts above them in quality.
