Basel vs Crusaders Prediction
After the completion of the past Super League season, Basel is seen playing a set of club friendlies. They have battled some competitive outfits in those friendlies and still manages to keep their unbeaten run in a consistent rate. Their offensive and defensive side also looks impressive.
Basel possess a decent form at home too. They have recorded some positive displays of late here. Basel have only lost two games at home in the past season. Also, we can see their offensive line-up scoring two or more goals in seven of the past 10 home outings across all competitions.
On the other side, Crusaders are on the back of a decent first round win against Magpies. Crusaders were 2-1 down in the first leg, but outscored Magpies in the second leg scoring 3-1 at home. It was a tight encounter and such stats will count here against an outfit like Basel.
Crusaders possess an average form on the road. Their most recent away fixture was against Magpies which ended up in a 2-1 defeat for them. Also, we can see their defensive side leaking goals in almost every fixtures in the past 10 while playing away.
Considering all the above stats, we are left to back Basel to seal a win from this Quarterfinals fixture against Crusaders on Thursday.
