Our forecast for the confrontation between Kazakhstan and Albania, which will take place on October 11. All teams in the group have three points, who will take the lead?
The national team of Kazakhstan, as expected, could not make it to the European Championship, finishing in the penultimate place in its qualifying group after being defeated by Scotland (1: 3), although a victory would have made it third with 13 points. The League of Nations started well for the Kazakhs – 2: 0 against Lithuania, though later they failed to break Belarus (1: 2).
All the main players, with the exception of Baurzhan Islamkhan, Yan Vorogovsky and Sergey Maly, are now in the ranks and are ready to help the national team.
The Albanian national team got into a difficult qualifying group for Euro and took only fourth place. In September, the Albanians were unable to deal with modest Lithuania, having suffered a 0: 1 defeat absolutely to the point. To be fair, the Eagles scored their three points in the confrontation with Belarus (2: 0).
The coaching staff, led by Italian Eduardo Reya, did not summon a number of leaders to this training camp – Agoli, Roshi, Husai, Mavrai, Abrashi, Balay, Sadiku, Chikaleshi, Ayeti, Strakosh and Taulent Jaka are absent.
National Team Albania won just one match out of the previous four.
The Kazakhstan national team won twice in the last four head-to-head confrontations.
The national team of Kazakhstan has been scoring for four matches.
In our opinion, the first impression of this pair is extremely misleading. Of course, not so long ago the Albanians were a formidable force and could take points away from even the strongest national teams, but now everything has changed. The composition for this gathering is experimental and most of the leaders did not come. Moreover, even with them it was not possible to defeat the modest Lithuanians. Kazakhstanis also cannot count on a couple of footballers, but they play on their own field and will try to take advantage of it.
Our forecast is the Asian handicap (0) for Kazakhstan in BC Winline for 2.17.
