Our prediction for this Nations League match:
Kazakhstan and Albania go head to head at Almaty Ortalyk Stadion in the Nations League round 3. The Kazakhs aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Belarus, and a win over Albania will see them cement top position in Group 4. Baktiyor Zaynudtinov has overcome his injury, and the 22-year-old CSKA Moscow midfielder is widely expected to return to the starting XI. The Albanians, on the other hand, will be without suspended defender Elseid Hysaj, who was sent off in the 1-0 defeat to Lithuania.
Edoardo Reja’s men were anything but impressive in their second group game; therefore, we do not believe that away win should be considered. A close encounter is on the cards in Almaty, and we believe that punters from all four corners of the world can find value in betting on draw. This will be the first meeting between the two national teams since September 2005 when Albania defeated Kazakhstan 2-1 in the World Cup qualifier.
