      Galatasaray vs Astana Predictions

      Neither Galatasaray and FC Astana can qualify for the next phase of Champions League football, but a place in the Europa League is still up for grabs. The game on Tuesday night is an important one for two clubs that will have an opportunity to make an impact in that competition.

      In Romania, it was an entertaining match-up between the two teams ending in a 2-2 draw. Still, it’s difficult to look past Galatasaray as favourites, both because of their home field advantage and their improving form in the competition. Most notably, they picked up a 2-1 home victory over Benfica.

      FC Astana have generally played their best football at home, drawing all three of those games. They’ve been less impressive away from home getting thrashed 4-0 by Athletico and 2-0 by Benfica.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Pressure of game

      It was a high-scoring encounter last time out and there’s certainly goals on both sides in this match-up. However, we think that the style of this match-up is likely to be a little different than the previous game. Galatasaray are going to clog up the midfield and they’re going to play to shut this one down. In their case, even a draw is enough.

      2. Astana away goal-scoring

      They haven’t scored a goal away from home in the group stage yet and generally they just don’t seem to have the same attacking spark away from home.

      3. Great odds

      We’re getting the Under 2.5 odds at 43/40 in this match-up, it’s just too good to pass up.
