Kazakhstan hosts Finland in round 8 of the World Cup qualification. The match will be played on Tuesday, October 12th at Astana Arena (Nur-Sultan)
On the one hand, Kazakhstan is in last place in this group. That is, as predicted, it became an outsider in this company. However, Talgat Baysufinov and his charges should not be ashamed for 2021. They managed to take points away from Ukraine twice, conceding first (there was an exchange of goals in added minutes in the home match). Then, returning the favor to the neighbors, they tied against Bosnia and Herzegovina away (2-2), having equalized in the 95th minute. But on Saturday, the team did little, although this time it hosted the same Bosnians. And the Kazakhs conceded twice from Prevljak.

On Saturday, Finland hosted a direct competitor, the national team of Ukraine. The logic of the tournament situation forced the Finns to choose more attacking tactics than usual. Moreover, they had to win back very quickly, as Yarmolenko scored already in the 4th minute. The Finns still managed to equalize through the efforts of Pukki. However, Yaremchuk quickly sent the Ukrainian up again. But the Finns didn’t give up and held the initiative almost to the final whistle. But what's the point if you can count a maximum of one and a half scoring chances? Now the Finns are ranked fourth in the standings, lagging behind Bosnia and Herzegovina and Ukraine. However, they can fix everything, as the opponents will play against each other. But Finland only needs to win in Nur-Sultan.
All three official head-to-head matches were won by the Finns. And they beat Kazakhstan in September, when Pohjanpalo scored the only goal in Helsinki. The Kazakhs are unlikely to give points so easily. There will be a fight, and, perhaps, there will be no goals. The bet on Under 2.5 goal scored suggests itself.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
