In the match of the 1/4 finals of the Conference League qualification, the players of Astana and Aris will come face to face. Will the hosts be able to win in this confrontation?
The players of "Astana" are spending a very mediocre season. Tikhonov's team is located on the 2nd line in the championship of Kazakhstan. In addition, in the National Cup, the "citizens" have 4 points after 2 rounds. It is worth noting that in the recent past, "Astana" is a very strong team playing in the group stage of the Europa League. However, last season this team failed, having been defeated by" Buduchnost " with a score of 0: 1 already in the Second qualifying round of the tournament.
According to the results of last season, the Greek team was content with the 3rd place in the standings. The new Greek championship has not yet started, and therefore the Mantsios team is approaching its first official match in the Conference League after 3 friendly matches, having one victory over Lokomotiv. As part of the last season, the Greek grand reached the second qualifying round of LE, where it lost to Kolos with a score of 1: 2.
Statistics and figures:
- The hosts are the favorites of the meeting;
- "Astana" has a 3-match series without defeats;
- Aris has won only once in 5 games;
- The rivals have not previously crossed paths in face-to-face meetings.
I am sure that the Kazakh team will manage not to lose on its own field and show a very solid level of football. I strongly doubt that the guest team will be able to demonstrate the best game. We are waiting for the victory of "Astana" with a zero handicap.
