Astana vs Dinamo Tbilisi odds and betting statistics



Astana vs Dinamo Tbilisi match preview

After a few seasons in the wilderness, Astana are determined to get back to big-time European competition.

Between 2014 and 2019, the Yellow-and-Blues won six successive Kazakh Premier League titles, before missing out in back-to-back seasons, before regaining the trophy in 2022.

During their golden period, Astana featured in five UEFA group stages, including the Champions League in 2015, most-recently doing so in the Europa League in 2019.

Since then though, the Astaneses have won only one of five qualification ties, smashed 6-0 by Raków Częstochowa 12 months ago.

This time, if Grigori Babayan’s team are going to make any headway this summer, home form will be key.

This though could be a tough match-up, with the record 19-times Erovnuli Liga champions heading to Nur-Sultan.

The Georgian champions have actually won just one of their last seven ties, losing each of the last four, making Giorgi Tchiabrishvili’s team underdogs before a ball is kicked.

The winners of this two-legged affair will take on GNK Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League second qualifying round.

As for the losers, they’ll drop down into the Europa Conference League’s second round of qualification and meet the losers of Ħamrun Spartans vs Maccabi Haifa.
