Basel vs Crusaders: Top Free Betting Tips

Basel will be keen to get back on the winning track when they welcome Crusaders in the Quarter-Finals of Europa Conference League Qualifiers. Crusaders come into this game after the home victory of the same tournament.

Draw

Basel had been through the winning sequence before July but now are winless in the last three attempts. The FCB are also yet to win from the last two home outings. On the other hand, Crusaders have also won only twice in the recent five games but they secured favourable momentum at away venues. The visitors have won four of the last five games away from home. Given the form of both sides, we expect to cancel each other's efforts in a tame draw.

Over 2.5 Goals

The Citizens of Basel scored one goal per game in the last three attempts but added a total of 11 goals in the recent five home attempts. Crusaders have also found the back of the net at least twice in four of the previous five away games. Moreover, Basel couldn’t win a single clean sheet in the last five outings. So there will be a high possibility to witness a high-scoring total in this game.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

The back line of Basel has also been the same in the home attempts as they remained unable to earn a clean sheet in the last four hosting games, leaking nine goals in that course. However, the attacker managed to score in all of those duels. In opposition, Crusaders missed the target once in the last five outings but they have been on the scoring side in all of the latest away outings. Hence, we believe to see this game with a BTTS outcome.
