Match preview

FC Basel came into this tie as overwhelming favourites and, with a two-goal lead in their back pocket, this is even more so the case now.

A week ago, Dan Ndoye and Ádám Szalai were on target in a 2-0 home victory at St. Jakob-Park.

So, will the Swiss giants secure the victory in Belfast?

To say that the RotBlau boast some serious European pedigree would be an understatement.

The Swiss side were Europa League quarter-finalists as recently as 2020, getting to the round of 16 of this competition just last season.

In all, Basel have featured in 17 group stages since 2002, looking for another elongated European campaign this season too.

Crusaders meanwhile are looking to reach the third round of qualifying for the first time ever.

The Northern Irish club have fallen at this hurdle on seven previous occasions, most recently to Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2019.

So, a comeback seems very unlikely at Seaview.

The reward for the winners of this one is a date with Brøndby or Pogoń Szczecin in the Europa Conference League third qualifying round.
