FC Astana vs Sporting Prediction & Betting tips
Hard game that will have to face one of the sensations of the group stage such as Astana, when this Thursday receives the Portuguese cast of Sporting Lisbon, in game corresponding to the first round of the UEFA Europa League final, to be played in the Astana Arena.
FC Astana :
Those led by Stanimir Stoilov come at a disadvantage to this game, and is that the current Kazakh national champion has not played an official match since that December 7 last year when he won 1-0 in his visit to Slavia Prague 0-1, in a victory that allowed him to reserve a place in this eliminatory phase.
To vary from that date to the present, the cast of Astana has only made two friendlies against Zilina of Slovakia and Hacken of Sweden, and both games ended with defeats of 1-0 and 2-0 respectively, which does not offer many guarantees to be able to get a good result in the game this Thursday.
Meanwhile, the situation is completely different in Portuguese store, so those led by Jorge Jesus are in full competition in the Primeira Liga de Portugal. The “Lions” come from defeating Feirense 2-0 in a game where they not only broke a two-game losing streak, but also to stop the scoring drought of a team that continues to miss the presence of its maximum reference in attack such as the Dutch Bas Dost.
At the moment the Portuguese team is located in third place in the Primeira Liga with 53 points but with many chances to win the title, since there are only two points that separate it from the leader FC Porto.
