Betting predictions for FC Astana vs Zalgiris – 20.07.2016

Main prediction:

Both teams to score @ 1.45

betnow
To consider: Under 1.5 goals @ 3.00 betnow

FC Astana is a very hard nut to crack at home and they rarely concede, proof of that being the 4 goals conceded in their past 10 official games in front of their supporters. As far as Zalgiris is concerned, they may be known as an offensive side, but they will struggle against the Astana defence, as in the first leg. The most likely outcome for this fixture would be another scoreless draw that sends this game into ET.

In order to back up our theory, there is an even more valuable odd for a maximum of 1 goal to be scored, in case either team gets lucky.
