Aris – Astana
Aris have a daunting task at home as they seek to rise from a 2-0 first leg defeat to Astana in the Europa Conference League second qualifying round. That was the hosts first game of the season and they were really off the mark, coming right from a not so great preseason. Aris have only one win in their last five matches and they’ve conceded two or more goals in three of the last four, while keeping just one clean sheet in their last five matches. Three of their last four matches have produced over 2.5 goals and they’ve failed to score in two of five matches.
Astana are on with their domestic season and definitely are match-fitter than the Greek side. They will be boosted by their first leg win and going into this game, they have a much better run. In their last five matches, they are unbeaten, with four wins and a draw.
Astana are a much stronger side than Aris and the fact that they’ve been playing competitively will favor them. They have a good lead from the first leg and shouldn’t find much trouble dealing with Aris. The hosts haven’t had a great run at home either, while Astana have scored comfortably in their away matches too. Go for Astana to win here.
