Europa League at Bet Victor

Thursday evening sees a packed slate of fixtures in the 1st legs of the 1st qualifying round of the Europa League and our next preview features a clash between Northern Ireland side, Crusaders and Faroe Islands outfit, B36, as the betting tips continue at Seaview in Belfast.

Crusaders Prediction – Can Crusaders make most of home leg?

A 3-0 win over Ballinamallard United in the Irish Cup final rounded off a successful campaign for Crusaders in Northern Ireland.

The hosts had previously finished in 3rd place at the end of the regular Northern Ireland Premiership season as well.

The cup final win secured Crusaders’ passage into this 1st qualifying round of the Europa League where they’ve tasted mixed success to date.

Since the end of the domestic top flight season at the end of April, Crusaders have played 4 pre-season friendlies with further success.

The Irish club have won 3 of these 4 matches with wins over Loughgall, Motherwell and Ards along with a draw against Ballyclare Comrades.

Crusaders will no doubt be keen to continue this positive momentum into this 1st leg of this Europa League qualifier on Thursday night.

Having lost at home just once in their last 13 matches in all competitions, Crusaders certainly look well placed to do well here this evening.

B36 Prediction – Can B36 extend unbeaten run?

The visitors bring a 7-match unbeaten run into this 1st leg of this 1st qualifying round of this Europa League tie with Crusaders.

Confidence will be high in the Faroe Islands outfit’s camp too as this unbeaten sequence includes 6 wins out of their last 7 matches.

All of these matches during this unbeaten sequence were played in the Faroe Islands Meistaradeildin, with B36 currently occupying 4th place.

Recent back-to-back defeats away at the top two clubs, Vikingur and NSI had threatened to de-rail B36’s push for a top three finish.

However, the visitors have since bounced back in style by recording a 3-match winning streak on their travels which has kept them in touch at the top.

B36 are now just 1 point adrift of 3rd placed KI, but attentions now turn to the potentially financially lucrative Europa League.

With just 2 wins out of their last 18 matches played in this competition overall, it looks like B36 will have their work cut out here though.


Key-Facts – Crusaders v B36

  • Crusaders have lost just 1 of their last 13 matches at home in all competitions
  • B36 have registered just 2 wins out of their last 18 matches in the Europa League
  • These two teams have never played each other before


Betting Tips Verdict

Crusaders with home advantage could just edge this 1st leg.
