Kazakhstan vs Cyprus Prediction
The Hawks are placed third in the table, just below the second and final qualifying spot, but lags behind by seven points. They have so far just two wins, and eight goals to boast of in this qualifying process.
The Cypriots meanwhile, sit just below this opponent and have the same number of seven points. They have comparatively better offensive and defensive stats though. The team found the back of the net eleven times while having their defense breached just six times.
Qualification hereon will definitely be a tricky affair for either, taking into account the lead the top two squads in the group possess. Not only will both need to win their remaining fixtures, but they need to bank on Russia, and Belgium bottling games too.
Anyhow, a win is a must, and as such, the hosts of the day hold a clear advantage here. They have lost just twice in their previous nine appearances in front of the home crowd, whereas, their counterparts have been struggling on the road for a long time. In fact, the cavalry was winless in 15 of their former 17 away ties, and 14 of these were losses.
As such, count on Bauyrzhan Islamkhan and his boys to manage to sweat it out on the pitch to secure the three points.
But do consider that the guests have nothing to lose, and will definitely put their best effort on the field. Moreover, they have been far better offensively, and importantly, every h2h encounter so far had had goals from both sides.
Consequently, expect either squad to find the back of the net in this high profile battle.
