Astana have already dropped two points in front of their fans two weeks ago when they only drew 1-1 with Slavia Prague and the victory over the Israeli side is a must if they want to keep their knockout phase chances alive.


The Bulgarian manager Stanimir Stoilov is just inches away from securing the domestic title after Sunday’s home victory over the fourth-placed Irtysh.

The Blue and Yellows are now four points clear at the top of the standings with three games left to play and a game in hand on the second-placed Kairat who are the only threat to their crown at this stage.

As for the Europa League campaign, a single point in two games can’t be regarded as a special success.

Maccabi Tel Aviv

The visitors have just started their domestic campaign which sees them holding the second place after opening seven rounds in Ligat Ha’al.

Jordi Cruyff’s men notched two goals in each of their last two outings in the top flight of the Israeli football, but Vidhar Kjartansson, Omer Atzily & company are yet to score in the group phase of Europa League.

Astana vs Maccabi Tel Aviv: Head to head

Thursday’s clash at Astana Arena will be the first ever head to head encounter between the two sides.

Astana vs Maccabi Tel Aviv: Prediction

Both teams have found it tough to score in the European competition and given the third-round clash will have a massive importance for them, we just can’t see goals galore.

This makes the Under 2.5 goals FT by far the best of the betting options, while the draw appears to be the most likable of outcomes.

Astana vs Maccabi Tel Aviv: Bets

You can’t go wrong with the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.72.

The second option would be the draw at 3.20.
