Kazakhstan Betting Preview
Kazakhstan has struggled heading into this game and they have lost three games in a row. Over the last three games, Kazakhstan has scored only one goal total. In the last game against the United Arab Emirates, they gave up two goals, including one in the 71st minute, and that led to the defeat. Abat Aimbetov scored in the 62nd minute for Kazakhstan. Aymbetov is the star of this team, and they are going to need his attacking power in this game if they are going to secure a victory. Sergey Miliy, Nuraly Alip, and Aleksandr Marochki are all expected to start on the back line here.
Slovenia Betting Preview
Slovenia has won two games in a row including the last game against Montenegro. Miha Zajc scored in the 42nd minute, and that was enough for them to secure the victory. Two games against Romania, Slovenia was able to secure a 2-1 victory. Benjamin Sesko has had a strong season for RB Salzburg, and he’s expected to get the start in this game. Jasmin Kurtic is dealing with a knee injury and he’s not going to be able to go here. Jan Oblak will get the start in goal and they are going to need him to be to be lights out here.
Shane’s Free Pick
The Kazakhstan offense has been a major issue heading into this game, and it’s going to be no different in this game. Slovenia also has the better goalkeeper in this game in Jan Oblak, and they are going to have no issue in this game locking down. Kazakhstan isn’t going to even find the back of the net here. Slovenia might not score more than a goal here, but it’s still going to be enough to secure the victory. Back Slovenia on the money line.
