Sporting vs Astana – Betting Tip and Prediction:
On the 1st leg match, Astana got in the lead with a strong start to the encounter, but on the 2nd half, all the differences in terms of quality, both individually and collectively, were exposed.
In that sense and considering the 2-goals advantage that Sporting has, I expect a match without a lot of cautions, with some goals and with Sporting showing arguments when it comes to finishing, already having Bas Dost available.
Astana can also help fulfilling this “Over”, since they have scored in all matches of this competition.
