📋 Team News: Crusaders

It doesn’t get much better regarding selection, with just the sole fitness concern for the Crusaders boss Stephen Baxter to contend with due to a largely intact group of players. Ben Kennedy (Knee Injury) misses out.

📋 Team News: Linfield

Thanks to a fully healthy group available to select from, the Linfield manager David Healy does not have any fitness worries to speak of coming into this clash.

🧠 Prediction

We’re of the opinion that Crusaders may find it difficult to be putting a goal past this Linfield outfit who we reckon will just have the edge.

That’s why our selection here is for a very competitive encounter with a 0-1 winning margin for Linfield at the end of this game.

Hoping for a good game.
