Crusaders News and Form

There was no scraps for Crusaders on their trip to Wolves in the first leg of this second qualifying round tie. The Northern Ireland side lost 2-0. To their credit though they made their opponents work really hard as Crusaders put up some great resistance. They did dig in really well to try and stay in the tie. Because of all that defensive work, the Hatchetmen were never at threat in the attack. That was their fourth loss in their last seven European games (W2 D1).

Wolves 2-0 correct score


The two victories in that sequence by Crusaders happened in the first qualifying round of this season’s campaign. They took a 2-0 and a 3-2 win over B36 Torshavn there. Before that, they had been on a sequence of five straight European-tie defeats. Do they have it in them to come up with something really special? Crusaders are W2 L3 in their last five home games in European competition.

Wolves News and Form

For their first competitive game of the season, Wolves will pretty happy at sitting 2-0 ahead. This is their first European action since the 1980s. They were always red hot favourites going point of nature and their goals came from Jota in the first half and Ruben Vinagre in the final minute of the game.

Wolves took 80% of possession in that fixture and naturally more match sharpness will work its way into their game. This really isn’t even about them going broke in trying to run up a cricket score. There’s a long way to go to reach the group stage of the Europa League and they need to work themselves up to tougher tasks.
