Another Europa League game between Zira and Astra where I'm expecting goals. Both team should score easily here.
First leg ended 3-1. Astra Giurgiu were able to win but they have played nothing special and Zira could have scored a key goal. The romanian team was the better team but they had the home advantage and I'm expecting a better game from the home side today. Zira is a very good team and they could take a better result from the first leg.
Zira is unbeaten in the last 8 matches played in front of their fans and they have scored at least a goal in 7 of these games. They will play offensive minded today as they need to score a lot of goals if they want to hope for the big comeback. They usually play good defense but Astra will have a lot of space on counterattacks and the home side will have big troubles to stop the romanian team (we have to say that Astra's attack is very strong). It's true that they usually show good defense at home but this will be not a defensive minded game for them as they need to score as more goals as possible.
Astra is playing their first official games of this season very offensive minded. Before the first leg against Zira, they have played 3 friendly matches...they lost every single game conceding more than 1 goal in every game. They lost against Trepca 89 4-2, Anzhi 2-1 and against Rijeka 3-1. The only game where they didn't conceded a goal was against Sepsi but they could have played that game even without defense as Sepsi was absolutely nonexistent (they won 1-0). 
Today, I'm expecting a very open match. Zira will play trying to score since the beginning of the game and they should be able to do that against Astra's poor defense. On the other hand, the romanian side will have a lot of space on counterattacks and they should score too.
I think that odds for both teams to score should be around 1,65 or something similiar. I don't think that this will be a close game as the home side will go to the attack and Astra is an offensive minded team.
