Kairat Almaty vs AZ Alkmaar – Europa League : In another of the several matches being played this Thursday
Regarding the 1st leg of the 2nd qualifying round for the 2018/2019 edition of the Europa League,
the local side Kairat Almaty and the visiting side AZ Alkmaar face off in Almatay, Kazhakstan, at the Almaty Ortalyk Stadium, in what will be the first meeting between these two European sides.
The local side comes into this match already with their season underway in terms of official matches,
already having played 19 matches in the league and also having already played a couple of international matches, namely on the previous round,
where they’ve beaten EU Engordany, from Andorra, by a 10-1 result on aggregate, which was a clear sign of the difference in terms of quality between the teams.
From the Dutch side, they come into this match still without having played a single official match on this new season that recently started,
only having played a couple of friendly matches, with a clearly positive record, with the team from Alkmaar being on a streak of 4 consecutive victories, with them keeping a clean sheet on the last 3 matches they’ve played.
Kairat Almaty vs AZ Alkmaar – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Taking into consideration, once again, the fact that this match features a Dutch team, with the Dutch teams typically playing open and attacking football,
and the teams tending to score but also concede a lot of goals, and against an Almaty that is also coming off a streak of matches with a lot of goals scored (9 matches that always had 3 or more goals scored),
I believe on a well-played match and with goals, and I see value on betting there will be goals during the first 45 minutes.
