Our Astana v Atyrau tips, poll and stats can be seen in full below (inc. the best betting odds).
Astana will play in this match coming off the back of a 1-1 Premier League drawn result versus Tobol.
Astana haven’t been able to stop scoring goals, netting every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 matches.
They’ve managed to rack up 11 during that period while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 5.
Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Aktobe in Premier League action, Atyrau and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
The forward players for Atyrau have had real problems scoring goals in their past six encounters, recording the disappointing return of just 4. In those fixtures, The Oilers have also seen the collective goal aggregate of opposing teams equal 10. We will just have to find out if that trend will be continued on in this game.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 13/05/2018 shows that these fixtures have not been good ones for Atyrau. They’ve not been able to come away with any victories whatsoever while Astana have been the better of the two, beating them in 100% of those games where they have faced each other.
An aggregate of 17 goals were produced between them throughout the course of those matches, with 15 from The Blue and Yellows and 2 being from The Oilers. The average number of goals per game works out to 2.83.
Team News: Atyrau
Due to a fully injury-free group ready to go, Atyrau manager Viktor Kumykov doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this game.
It seems to us that Atyrau could really struggle to put even one past this Astana side who look likely to have an absolute field day.
We are anticipating a very easy time of it with a 4-0 belting at least for Astana after 90 minutes.
