The new Europa Conference League is at the second qualifying stage. Astana from Khazakhstan host Aris Thessaloniki in the first leg and will be looking to extend their unbeaten run to four games. Astana are second in their domestic league, a point behind the leaders. Their most recent match saw them beat Aktobe 3-2 at home in the Khazakhstan Cup. Only one of their last 11 competitive home league matches has been lost.
Aris ended the Greek Super League in poor form last season and pre-season friendlies haven't gone well either. They won a friendly against Lokomotiv Moscow at the weekend, that ended a run of eight games without a win. Just one of their last nine away games European success has been limited with no group stage since 2010/11 in the Europa League. Only one of their last five away games in European competition has been won. A bet on both teams scoring looks the one to make here.
