The hosts’ midfielder Serikzan Muzhikov will not play tonight. Bas Dost’s appearance is doubtful.

Astana had a quite good home performance in the Europa League. We believe, they will try to build a solid base before the rematch. Sporting are considered as the favorite of this duel. They can correct all in the home game in case of failure tonight. We predict the home side’s win or draw and recommend to bet on Astana’s double chance.
