Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Astana play host to KuPS at their Astana Arena in what is expected to be an entertaining Conference League qualifier. Astana shared the spoils with KuPS in Finland a week ago, but keep in mind that the Kazakhs are on a five-game winning run at home in all competitions. Tigran Barseghyan, who scored the winner in a hard-fought 1-0 win over Kaisar Kyzylorda at the weekend, is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
KuPS, on the other hand, head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Lahti. Considering that the Finns are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on both teams to score. Brazil international Rangel is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors in the return leg.
