FC Astana vs Villarreal Prediction & Betting tips
An interesting match in this day of Thursday is the one that will dispute Astana and Villarreal for a new date of the Europa League (group stage).
FC Astana :
In my opinion, there is no clear favorite on this occasion, since the two teams can alternate the control of the ball throughout the 90 minutes of play. For this reason and knowing that the Kazakhs are competitive and uncomfortable to overcome between the lines, we advise you to play a few euros to the bet “plus 1.5 goals”. Remember that Spaniards know how to stand playing away from home thanks to their collective and individual hierarchy.
Take into account that Astana defeated Maccabi Tel Aviv 0-1 as a visitor, reaching 7 units in total. These days, it is located in the second position of the table, standing out for being ordered in the tactic despite its limitations. Seek to add, since Slavia Prague could take the quota to the next phase.
On the other hand do not forget that the Kazakh box has added acceptable results at home, after equalizing 1-1 against Slavia Prague and crushing 4-0 at Maccabi Tel Aviv. Apparently he is showing cash from midfield forward.
Continuing with the analysis you should know that Villarreal comes from playing against Athletic Bilbao as a visitor for the Spanish tournament (1-1 draw). In the group he has 8 points, product of 2 triumphs and 2 equalities, his objective being to secure the first place of the same. It is still an easy and competitive one between the lines thanks to the work of coach Javi Calleja.
And finally we tell you that the Spanish have registered acceptable markers playing away from home, after equaling 0-0 against Maccabi Tel Aviv in Israel and overcome 0-2 to Slavia Prague in Czech territory. It is still a balanced eleven between lines.
After all that I said the game for the bet “more 1.5 goals” due to the following reasons: First because Kazakhs and Spaniards can alternate the ball and the chances of goal from the initial whistle. Therefore, it should not surprise us that they can recover from a hypothetical initial disadvantage. Second because Astana is a competitive and uncomfortable eleven to overcome, ratifying much more when it acts as a local. And third because Villarreal has improved his level since the arrival of coach Javi Calleja, demonstrating both the Santander League and the Europa League. Faced with this reality and knowing that the “Yellow Submarine” knows how to stand as a visitor and has a goal in this condition, we believe that the game can end 1-1 or 2-0 in favor of either side.
