It's going to be a long trip for HJK to Kazakhstan and it wont get easier when they arrive with the tough local conditions and very hot weather.
Astana disposed of Maribor 3-1 last round after a first leg loss. Maribor are a stronger team than HJK for sure. They reached the group stage of the champions league last season and were not disgraced there.
HJK have only managed to beat very low quality teams in europe in recent years, last year APOEL knocked them out after a 2-0 home win, the year before they were eliminated by Estonian team Nomme Kalju.
Astana are currently on a 19 run unbeaten home run since Villarreal won here almost a year ago. This team has beaten bigger name and better teams than HJK in the last few seasons, to name a few: AIK, HAPOEL Tel Aviv, Maribor. These Kazakh teams are really really tough opposition these days, The Finish league is a pretty low level at the moment and HJK are still without their best striker Kanji who cant play yet. I don't expect a trashing but a win for Astana is very likely, I see 2-0, the -1AH gives us insurance should they only win by 1 goal which is the least I expect.
