BTTS prediction: Goals from both teams – yes
There have been goals at both ends in four consecutive matches for Astana. Ballkani come into the match having failed to score in consecutive away fixtures in the Conference League. Still, the poor defensive record of the home team gives enough reasons to back both teams to score.
