Crusaders vs B36 Torshavn Match Preview
Crusaders host B36 Torshavn for their Europa League Qualifiers clash as they open the new campaign early once again, having picked it up through the pre-season with three wins and a draw – now looking to build on rock-solid defensive displays at Seaview stadium.
Hatchetmen have beaten Loughgall (0-3), Motherwell (1-0), Ards (4-1), and only saw the streak ended by Ballyclare Comrades in a goalless draw last week. Stephen Baxter will now want to build on the performances and it’s questionable if the Faroe Islands visitors have what it takes to cope.
B36 Torshavn enjoy their third Europa League Qualifiers in a row after seeing a harsh 2nd Qualifying Round exit in the hands of Besiktas (8-0 on aggregate) last year. They’ve been rather solid domestically and have a great streak behind them, despite seeing a three-week break since then.
White Tigers have shared the spoils with NSI (1-1) in their last outing but the draw only ended a six-match winning streak, as they finally retained goalscoring consistency led by Brian Jacobsen in the final third and scoring 11 goals in five games played since mid-May. However, dealing with Crusaders should prove more of a task than they’ve been used to.
We feel the home side will have what it takes to shut them down and we will now stick with Crusaders to keep their cool and earn an advantage with a confident display in front of the home crowd, as we go for a win to Nil at an eye-catching 7/4 with bet365.
However, we don’t see this as a very one-sided contest and B36 should prove their worth too, as we hope for few goals and a lot to play for in the second leg. With that in mind, we’re also going for Under 2.5 Goals FT here, which comes at 9/10 with MansionBet.
