FC Aktobe vs Torpedo Kutaisi
FC Aktobe managed to get a good result away to Kutaisi (1-1) with a goal scored at 82′ minute, although they have been behind in the score at 62′ minute, they got the positive result, and now they have the upper hand for the next Europa League qualification phase. Their main advantage is that they are in a period where their domestic league is at full action, and three days after the European game they also won against FC Taraz with the score of 4-1, climbing near to the top of the standings in Kazakhstan domestic league.
FC Aktobe counts five consecutive draws in Europa League, while they are still unbeaten to all seven games played for Kazakhstan league this season, with five wins and two draws. Uzbek striker Aleksandr Geynrikh is questionable as in the first game he was replaced due to injury, but this is their only problem.

Torpedo Kutaisi returned in European competitions after several years, but failed to get a positive result. They are surely not ready yet, as this was their first official game after Georgian Top league finished on May. Last season they finished third in the standings of Georgian league, having the best defense of the division.
The Georgians are having a squad with no foreigners, and they are playing for the third time in their history in Europa League. This was the first game in their European history where they did not lost. They now travel to Kazakhstan to overturn the 1-1 draw of the first match, and will try to attack as they need at least a goal.
It is expected that Torpedo Kutaisi will encounter more problems, as Aktobe is more ready and better prepared for this game, while they surely have a more experienced squad that stands well with more experienced players. FC Aktobe should not relax as the first game result is a tricky one, and will try to get the qualification with a victory.
