The 1st legs of the 2nd qualifying round in the Europa League continue on Thursday night and our next fixture features a clash between English Premier League side, Wolves, and Northern Ireland outfit, Crusaders, as the betting tips continue at Molineux.

Wolves Prediction – Can Wolves make successful debut in Europa League?

Thursday night will be another notable event in the recent history of Premier League side, Wolves, as they make their debut in the Europa League.

The west midlands club rounded off a successful return to the English top flight by securing a spot in this competition.

Although they finished last season’s Premier League campaign with a 2-0 loss to Liverpool, Wolves had strung 3 wins on the trot.

Wins against Arsenal, Watford and Fulham helped them to an impressive 7th place finish and a spot in the Europa League.

The hosts have won 10 of their last 12 matches on home turf at Molineux in all competitions but they haven’t won by 5 goals or more in any of these.

There’s not much doubt that the hosts should win this two-legged tie against Crusaders, but it’s early season and the margin of victory may not be as large as many people anticipate.

In addition, they’ve never faced Crusaders before in any sort of competitive match prior to tonight’s 1st leg.

Crusaders Prediction – Can Crusaders avoid heavy defeat?

Northern Ireland outfit, Crusaders, safely negotiated their 1st qualifying round tie against Faroe Islands outfit, B36 Torshavn.

The visitors registered a 5-2 aggregate win over two legs, winning 2-0 at home and edging the away leg 3-2 in Torshavn.

They now face the daunting task of facing English Premier League side, Wolves, in this 2nd qualifying round of this Europa League competition.

Nevertheless, recent form and results suggest they have a slim chance of frustrating their more illustrious opponents in this 1st leg.

The Irish club bring an 8-match unbeaten run into this tie in the west midlands which includes no fewer than 7 wins.

In addition, this sequence includes 4 away wins in all competitions so Crusaders may not be fazed by this trip.

Most important though, is Crusaders’ results away from home in the Europa League; the visitors have lost 7 of their 9 away ties at this level.

They’ve also lost by 5 goals or more in just 1 of these 9 matches, so a landslide defeat looks unlikely here.


Key-Facts – Wolves v Crusaders

  • Wolves have won 10 of their last 12 matches on home turf at Molineux
  • Crusaders have won their last 4 away matches on the trot in all competitions
  • Crusaders have also lost by 5 goals or more in just 1 of their 9 away matches in the EL


Betting Tips Verdict

Wolves will more than likely win this encounter, but the Irish visitors may keep things closer than many anticipate.
