Our prediction for this Europa League match:
Astana will be looking to make amends for a heavy 6-3 loss to Dynamo Brest when they take on Buducnost in the Europa League second qualifying round. The Kazakhstan champions failed to impress in the Champions League qualifiers, but they have enough quality to beat the Montenegrins at home ground. It has to be noted that Astana defeated Manchester United 2-1 in their last home game in the Europa League.
Buducnost, on the other hand, have been anything but impressive at the start of the new domestic campaign, with the team suffering a heavy 4-0 loss to Podgorica on the road. The Montenegro outfit suffered elimination to Zorya in the 2019/20 Europa League qualifiers, and we do not believe that they are capable of claiming a major scalp in Thursday’s clash. Buducnost continue their European journey in the Europa League following a 3-1 loss to Ludogorets in the Champions League qualifiers.
