Two changes from the Ferencvaros game with Juranovic coming in for Montgomery and Giakoumakis coming in for Abada (with Kyogo moving to the right).

For NP xG Johnston had 0.99 and Giakoumakis 0.66 however I think that 0.66 is unfair on Giakoumakis as I don't think the chance was as easy as he made it look.
