Astana vs Buducnost
Europe – UEFA Europa League
Date: Thursday, 17 September 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Astana Arena.
The Montenegrin First League is one of the worst competitions in the whole of Europe. They are placed 51st in a total list of 55, and this metric suggests that clubs representing these leagues are going to be minnows in European competitions.
And to further tip the scales farther from them, they are on the road, and they are pitted against a team from the Kazakhstan Premier League – moderately one of the best in Europe.
Moreover, the Blue and Yellows are on a roll at home, while their counterparts have been struggling on the road lately.
As such, expect an Astana win this Thursday.

- These two teams are locking horns with each other for the very first time.
Astana vs Buducnost: Prediction
Paul Ashworth’s men are the reigning champions of the Kazakhstan Premier League – a competition that is head and shoulders above the Montenegrin First League. In fact, the latter is actually one of the worst in the whole of Europe.
Going on, the Blue-Whites were also winless in four of their former six overall fixtures, and they had lost three of their last five games. Also note that they had conceded three or more goals in two of their preceding four matches, and let in two or more goals in three of their past five matches.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in eight of their last ten fixtures, and one of these losses had come in the Champions League.
They also are on an unbeaten run at home in the past five appearances, and have lost here just once in the whole of 2020. In fact, they have lost just a single league game at this stadium since June of 2019.
Taking into account these observations, expect an Astana win this Thursday.
