KuPS vs Astana
UEFA Europa Conference League
Date: Thursday, 5 August 2021
Kick-off at 17:00 UK/ 18:00 CET
Venue: Vare Areena.
KuPS are going through a great run, and especially so at home. They are scoring consistently, and are determined to qualify for the mains. Meanwhile, Astana are going through a worrying run, and are conceding quite in plenty. Likely, expect a win for KuPS this Thursday.
They had finished third in the Finnish top flight the last season, but were level on points with the second-placed Inter Turku. They had also scored the second-most number of goals in the competition, and had lost just five times all through the campaign.
In the meantime, Astana are struggling with their defense, and especially so on the road. In fact, they have rarely won in away fixtures in the past three months.
By the looks of things, expect KuPS to register a victory this Thursday at the Vare Arena.
KuPS vs Astana: Head-to-head (h2h)
- This is the first time these two teams are about to lock horns with each other.
KuPS vs Astana Prediction
KuPS had won nine of their past eleven overall fixtures, and they had scored two or more goals in six of their last nine games.
Note that they had also won 15 of their preceding 18 appearances at home, and had slotted in two or more goals in 14 of their last 19 such games.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in eight of their preceding thirteen overall match-ups, and they are on a two-game losing streak as well.
They are also on a four-game winless run on the road, and had conceded two or more goals in five of their past seven road trips.
Taking into account these stats, expect a win for KuPS. However, Astana are from a much superior league, and they have failed to score on the road just twice in the past 24 away games.
Likely, expect them to find the back of the net at least once.
