Ballymena United will welcome Crusaders to The Showgrounds for a matchday 8 fixture in Northern Ireland NIFL Premiership. The last meeting on 2nd April 2021 ended in a Carrick Rangers 1-0 win. Both sides have met twenty-seven times in the most recent seasons. Ballymena United has won 6 matches, and Crusaders triumphed in 17. Recent outings average 3.15 goals, while both teams score 59% of the time.

Carrick Rangers's latest fixture against Larne ended in an away 0-0 draw. They were not spectacular, so this result seems fair.

Ballymena United's recent game against Dungannon Swifts ended in a home 4-3 win. Although Ballymena United didn't match their opponent's intensity and quality while on possession, it was still enough. Ballymena United pushed forward in the second half and scored in the 49th, 61st, 66th and 74th minute.

Since the start of the season, Carrick Rangers is more dominant at home. They have three wins out of 4 games on home soil. Carrick Rangers's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 50% of home games.

Ballymena United has picked up 4 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Ballymena United wins 0.00 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Ballymena United kept a clean sheet in just 0% of their visits.

The hosts will have to work hard to get a good result. Carrick Rangers has won just 75% of home games. On average they score 1.00 goals and concede 1.00 per game. It is disappointing to see that Ballymena United is yet to win an away game. They have drawn 0% of all games on the road. Furthermore, they are in really good form, having won zero in a row away games.

The visitors have a better record and I have to back them. Carrick Rangers wins on average 2.25 points per home game. I am not sure they have what it takes to compete against Ballymena United. My prediction is Ballymena United to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 3.5 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 50% of Carrick Rangers's home and Ballymena United's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. Carrick Rangers has scored in 75% of home games. Ballymena United is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
