Atletico Madrid will host Astana in third round of Champions league group stage. Atletico showed decent performances in this season, they are at fourth position in Spanish Primera, and in Champions league they suffered defeat in previous round by Benfica, but in first round they defeated Galatasaray on the road. They will for sure go for a victory here, especially because of that defeat against Benfica. Atletico Madrid are now coming to this match after victory in previous round against Real Sociedad on the road. They ended previous season in Spanish league at third position and they won direct placement into Champions league group stage, and now must take all three points against weakest team in this group. Only forward Luciano Vietto are having a problems with slight injury and his appearance are in doubt.
Astana on the other had made historical success by reaching Champions league group stage, they eliminated APOEL in final round of qualifications and in first round they suffered defeat against Benfica, while in previous round they got a draw at their field against Galatasaray 2:2. They are probably the weakest team in this group but they showed pretty good performances in last match against Galatasaray and deserved that draw. Now they are facing with very strong opponent and it will be very hard for Astana to achieve some positive result here. Astana can be satisfied with their performances but they simple don't have enough quality to reach knockout stage. Forward Patrick Twumasi will miss this match due to a suspension.
Atletico Madrid are favorites here, they are in solid shape and for sure will go for a victory in front of their fans, while Astana has really small odds to take some points in this match on the road against very strong opponent, and I expect that Atletico will achieve convincing victory here.
