Match Preview

Astana have a mountain to climb to keep their Europa League (EL) hopes alive when they travel to Sporting for their round-of-32 second leg.
The Portuguese giants have a healthy lead from the first leg (3-1) and can afford to rest a few key players. Being stuck in a three-way battle for the two available Champions League spots in the Primeira Liga, however, could push them to prolong their European stay.
Astana have been out of competitive action for a while now, with just one match in over two months – which was the first leg defeat at home to Sporting. That should explain their rustiness, although they did impress early on in the first leg.
Sporting have lost only two matches in their last 18 fixtures (W13, D3, L2) in all competitions, but have won only one of their last six home games (W1, D2, L3) in UEFA fixtures. They also have a habit of conceding in Europe, having done in their previous nine games.
Astana come into this clash having scored in six of their last seven trips in EL. However, in ten of their last 12 away matches in all competitions, they could score only one goal.
Key battles: With Bas Dost set to be rested, Bruno Fernandes (one goal and one assist in the first leg) could be key for Sporting.
Any hopes of a comeback for Astana will be dependent on Patrick Twumasi’s returns (four goals, two assists).
Stat attack: Astana have kept clean sheets in three of their last four away matches and in their last two away EL games.
Sporting’s overall EL home record is impressive (W18, D7, L3), although they have just one win in their last six home games in Europe (W1,D2, L3).
Astana scored one goal in each of their three away games in the group phase.
