Our prediction for this Europa Conference League match:
Basel will be aiming to seal their spot in the Conference League third qualifying round when they take on Crusaders at Seaview on Thursday evening. Basel defeated Crusaders 2-0 with ten men on the field in the first leg, and it is no wonder the odds for the away win have been dropping. Midfielder Taulant Xhaka is banned for the match, with Liam Millar likely to step up. The Northern Ireland outfit, on the other hand, need a big win if they are to advance to the third qualifying round. Anyhor, away win should be considered as Basel will have a number of opportunities to score on the break. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, meaning that head coach Stephen Baxter is unlikely to make changes to the team that faced the RotBlau in Switzerland.
