Kazakhstan vs Slovenia – Betting Preview

On Thursday, Slovenia and Kazakhstan will play a competitive match for the first time ever at Astana Arena. This is a qualifier for the EURO 2024 tournament.

Having won Group 3 (League C) of the UEFA Nations League the previous time around, Kazakhstan was putting on a strong performance!

The following offers the match preview and the betting preview for the same!

Kazakhstan Preview

Kazakhstan would undoubtedly want to carry that momentum into the EURO qualifiers. Abat Aymbetov of the Astana forward team is likely to start at the head of the home team’s line.

After losing their previous game to UAE 2-1 in an international friendly, Kazakhstan will be hoping for a better outcome in this one.

Abat Aymbetov (62′) was the only name from Kazakhstan to appear on the scoresheet.

Recently, instances of Kazakhstan displaying defensive steel have been all too infrequent. They will be troubled by the fact that Kazakhstan has allowed 10 goals while being scored against in six of their previous six matches.

The Kazakhstan boss Magomed Adiyev will be happy not to have any fitness worries whatsoever ahead of this game thanks to a completely injury-free group ready to go.

Slovenia Preview

While the Slovenians were putting on strong performances in November friendlies, defeating both Romania and Montenegro, Thursday’s match will be anything but a cakewalk for Matjaz Kek’s men.

Since Kazakhstan are tough to beat at home, we are tempted to put our money on draw. A man to watch in the away side will be Panathinaikos striker Andraz Sporar, who has netted eight goals so far this season.

Slovenia will enter this match off a 1-0 victory over Montenegro in the last International Friendlies match. Slovenia only had one scorer, Miha Zajc (42′).

In their last six games, Slovenia, led by Matja Kek, have been rewarded for their shots on goal eight times. The total number of goals they have given up throughout the same time span is 5.

Owing to a fully healthy group available to select from, the Slovenia boss Matjaž Kek has no fitness concerns to report coming into this match!

1×2 Betting Odds

Let’s begin analysing the 1×2 market

Against this Slovenian lineup, which we believe will score at least once to take the lead, Kazakhstan may find it difficult to find the back of the net.

The home side is not the favourite in this @ 4.00.

When the referee blows for full-time, we anticipate a fiercely contested game that Slovenia will win by a slight margin!

Slovenia to win stands @ 2.08.

The market odds of a stalemate at the end of 90 mins, stands @ 3.48.

Total goals over/under

Let’s check the over/under scenario

The odds that the total number of goals scored will be over 2.5, stands @ 2.14.

While the odds that the total number of goals will be under 2.5, stands @ 1.83.

Since this is the first meeting between the two sides, there is no looking at past results and finding patterns.

Expect the better side, which is Slovenia, to win by a fine margin.
