Fola Esch Double Chance
Kairat have produced some excellent results at home this term, including a surprise 2-1 victory over a strong Red Star Belgrade team last month, though their form on their road continues to falter. Kairat have lost three of their last four away assignments and on Thursday’ they visit a Fola Esch outfit who have yet to taste defeat at home this term. With Kairat’s habit of coming unstuck on their travels well established, we think Fola Esch are worth backing in the double chance market on Thursday.
Both Teams to Score
Kairat’s recent away tests have been action-packed and goal-filled, with the net rippling a whopping 23 times in their last four games on the road combined. Both teams got in on the act in each of their last three away fixtures – a pattern we expect to continue when Kairat lock horns with a Fola Esch side that has a 100% scoring rate at home this season.
Over 1.5 Fola Esch Team Goals
We’re tipping Fola Esch to find plenty of joy in the final third against a leaky Kairat rearguard this week. The Kazakhstan club shipped a dismal 14 goals in their last four away skirmishes, with their hosts netting at least twice on each occasion. Fola Esch meanwhile, have notched twice in three of their last four runouts at home and they look an excellent price in the over 1.5 team goals market again this week.
Fola Esch vs Kairat: Match Preview
Luxembourg champions Fola Esch have never made it to the Group Stage of a European competition before, and having led the club to their first domestic title since 2015 last season, coach Sébastien Grandjean has an opportunity to make history again. Fola Esch are a formidable force on their own patch and they have lost just one competitive fixture at home since August 2019.
Like their opponents this week, Kazakhstani big-hitters Kairat are aiming to make it the Group Stage of an elite continental tournament for the first time this year. Kairat will look to experienced former Monaco and CSKA Moscow star Vagner Love for leadership and inspiration this week. The 37-year-old Brazilian already has eight goals to his name this season.
