Astana have been extremely convincing in all competitions at home this season, they are yet to lose a home game in the league winning 10 of 11 matches and have scored in 12 games in a row. Zalgiris can be strong on the road, but of late have come away with 4 losses in their last 9 away games and also drawing 1, however only failing to score in 2 of those 9.

Astana come off the back of a crucial experience in the Champions League appearance last season and will know exactly what it takes to be tough opponents for Zalgiris, who themselves have had Champions League qualifiers experience under their belt but failed to pass those stages with a 1-0 aggregate defeat to Malmo of Sweden last July.

Zalgiris will be a hard nut to crack on Wednesday night, but we feel the attacking prowess of Astana combined with the experience of last season’s Champions League showing will be all too much for the travelling team. With that in mind, we have gone for a 2-1 victory for Astana, with Zalgiris not being able to shut out the Kazakhstan side but not having enough in the locker to outscore them.

Combining our stats and analysis, we are going for a 2-1 Astana win at 15/2 and over 2.5 match goals at 43/40 with bet365, both these tips we believe have the best value bets for this match.

The most recent and only meeting between these two sides finished 0-0 last Wednesday night, with the 1st leg being held in Lithuania at Zalgiris' home stadium, Vilniaus LFF stadionas.

Astana have won 5/6 last home games with Zalgiris also scoring in 7/9 last away games and 3 of last 5 away games seeing over 2.5 match goals.

Astana have made a couple of changes in their last game to cater for this big qualifying game. No injury or fitness concerns to report.

Same goes for the away side, Zalgiris. Rested one or two key players in their last game ready for this particular game. No fitness worries ahead of the match.
