Crusaders will welcome Carrick Rangers to Seaview for a matchday 21 fixture in Northern Ireland NIFL Premiership. The last meeting on 16th November 2021 ended in a Crusaders 2-0 win. Both sides have met sixteen times in the most recent seasons. Crusaders has won 13 matches, and Carrick Rangers triumphed in 2. Recent outings average 4.44 goals, while both teams score 56% of the time.

Crusaders's latest fixture against Coleraine ended in an away 0-0 draw. Their strikers had a good game, but not enough to triumph at the end.

Carrick Rangers's recent game against Larne ended in a home 1-3 loss. Carrick Rangers's strikers were frustrated by the lack of good chances. Carrick Rangers put in a decent first-half display and scored in the 32nd minute.

So far, Crusaders plays better on the road than at home. They win 1.83 points per away game on average compared to 1.70 points at home. Crusaders's good defensive display is key to their success. They didn't concede in 50% of home games.

Carrick Rangers has picked up 2 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Carrick Rangers wins 0.82 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows.

It is not a surprise that the hosts stand out as a favourite to win this one. Crusaders lost the previous game at home but still have a lot of advantage over their opponent. They have won 50% of home games which gives them plenty of confidence for the upcoming fixture.

Carrick Rangers failed to win in four consecutive away games. It will be a big surprise to turn up on Saturday and win against Crusaders.

I am confident that the hosts will prove their worth and triumph with another home victory. Crusaders wins on average 1.70 points per home game, compared to 0.82 points per away game for Carrick Rangers. My prediction is Crusaders to win.

I expect a thrilling contest with plenty of goals. Both sides score and concede on average 2.41 goals per game. Over 2.5 goals were scored in an average of 41% of Crusaders's home and Carrick Rangers's away games. My prediction is Over 2.5 Goals.

Lately, there are not that many high-scoring games for both sides. I am confident that the tendency will keep going and at least one team will keep a clean sheet. A bet that both sides will score wins in an average of 24% of Crusaders's home and Carrick Rangers's away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: No.
