Double Chance: Magpies or draw
Crusaders might be at home in this game but that loads pressure on them to perform in front of their own fans. That combined with the fact they're favourites to win is a lot to handle and Magpies will love the fact they arrive with the tag of underdogs. With a lead from the first leg that will suit their game plan to perfection and we fully expect them to be tough to breakdown in this match. On top of that, they arrive here in much better form than their hosts as well. Crusaders have not won in six games whilst Magpies have won three of their past six.
Both teams scored in the first leg and we feel that's highly likely again here in the second. The recent form of both sides agrees with that thought process too. Crusaders have seen both teams score in four of their last five whilst Magpies have not seen a clean sheet in any of their past five games.
Total Goals: Over 2.5 goals
We have spoken about the fact Magpies will likely come into this game with the intention of stifling their hosts and whilst that is likely to be their plan, we think there will still be goals. The fact is both teams have a recent track record of scoring – and conceding – goals. Crusaders have gone over the 2.5 goal mark in four of their last five matches whilst Magpies have gone north of the same 2.5 cut off in each of their last five games.

Crusaders vs Magpies: Form, Recent Games, and News
Crusaders have been struggling for results of late with no wins in half a dozen outings. That said, they arrive here as favourites. Sure, they lost the first leg but had enough attacking threat to have won. Ben Kennedy will be their main goal threat.
Magpies are big outsiders to win this match but they more than held their own in the first leg. With decent general form they'll be confident of doing the same again here. Experienced Argentinian forward Pibe will have a big role in holding play up and providing an outlet.
