James Rodríguez is still away in Greece. Although the Olympic roster appeared a month later; substituted and did not enter Athens AEK in 1-3; in a match that ended the regular season of the Greek Super League for both clubs.
A goal against Harold Moukoudi and scores from Cédric Bakambu and Sergi Canós gave victory to the team led by Míchel González, who progressed to the playoffs and secured their aspirations to win the title for the fourth consecutive season. James remained on the bench for 90 minutes; He did not spend the last day of February.
AEK stood out a lot in the first half, in which his humility was effective, because he was anxious to open a big chance that he didn’t know how to use. In the spotlight was the intervention of VAR to invalidate the goal action in the hand of the former before the annotation of Pineda.

Unlike a rival; The Olympians did not let go of the start of the completion and took a decisive 3-minute advantage in the clash. In the 50th minute, Pep Biel’s shot deflected off Moukoudi and ended up in the back of the net. Not long after; Bakambu made it 0-2 by capturing an area of space/field behind the AEK defenders.
Afterwards, Canós finished with a great goal and almost signed in the match. Steven Zuber’s discount shortly after the AEK regulation season was not enough; who was the first to lose his place at the table by defeat.
James’ return is expected this weekend, but Michel chose not to risk it and the midfielder is still less than two weeks away from leaving before FIFA Day; the window in which Team Colombia will meet South Korea and Japan in friends to prepare for the Southern Qualifiers. In the next few days, Néstor Lawrence is expected to go to Asia.
