Crusaders vs Basel: Top Free Betting Tips

Basel won the opening fixture between these two teams and it is actually shocking that they scored just two goals. Here are our predictions for this match.

Total Goals – Under 2.5

There is a good chance that this game might not have a lot of goals. The expectations, of course, are that Basel will score a lot and will dominate but we did not see that in the first match and with a 0:2 lead, there is no point for Basel to go all in into this match. They will likely come out with some youngsters or second-squad players too. We do not expect goals from Crusaders either.

Both Teams To Score – No

Basel are definitely not in their best form lately and especially away from home – the team is on a 5-game streak of draws on the road and they have not won an away game in months. Nevertheless, their defense is not bad at all and Crusaders are a significantly weaker team that will have troubles scoring a goal again. We think that Basel will keep a clean sheet here.

Alternative Corners – Over 9

We saw a great number of corners in the first match and we expect to see more in this match as Crusaders will be the hosts. They took 4 in the previous match when they were away and they will have to be at their best for this match, so we expect some efforts. Basel also take a lot of corners in general because of their style of play that involves a lot of work on the wings.

Crusaders Preview

Crusaders are a team from Northern Ireland and generally one of the top sides in the country. The championship there is not too competitive and there are four teams that stand out above the rest. Crusaders finished 4th last year and had a spectacular goal difference – 47:28. They have the third-best defense in the league but Basel are a much bigger and stronger team than their usual opponents.

Basel Preview

Until a few years ago, Basel were the absolute best team in Switzerland and they were a regular in both the Champions League and other European tournaments. The team had years of struggle but seems to be improving again. They finished in 2nd place last season and had a goal difference of 70:41 in 36 rounds. Back in the day, they were known for their incredible attack – now, their biggest strength is the defense.
