Crusaders's last game in the Northern Ireland NIFL Premiership against Cliftonville at home ended in a 2-2 draw. They were lucky to collect one point since they played less with the ball and attempted fewer shots. Crusaders outplayed Cliftonville in the second half and scored in the 29th and 88th minute.

Glenavon's recent game against Ballymena United ended in a home 3-2 win. Glenavon dominated the game and deserved the win. Glenavon had good chances in both halves and scored in the 34th, 39th and 78th minute.

Since the start of the season, Crusaders is more dominant at home. They have nine wins out of 17 games on home soil. Although Crusaders is among the most solid home teams in the league, they are far from perfect. Their defence is not as good as expected with just 35% home clean sheets.

Glenavon has picked up 12 points from the previous six league games. They still have a lot to prove when playing away from home. Glenavon wins 1.50 points per away game, a bit less than their home record shows. To improve results, they have to be more compact in defence. Glenavon kept a clean sheet in just 22% of their visits.

It is hard to choose a favourite in this one. Both teams look evenly-matched and have their strengths. I am not willing to take a risk and prefer a double chance bet. My prediction is Crusaders or Glenavon to win.

Both sides are dangerous going forward. Crusaders has scored in 88% of home games. Glenavon is a decent match and has scored in all away games. My prediction is Both Teams to Score: Yes.
