CLIFTONVILE V CRUSADERS
Cliftonville will want to continue from where they left off last time out with the 0-2 Premiership victory versus Glenavon.
Their more recent scorelines show that much solidity has been shown by the Cliftonville backline. Cliftonville have given the opposition little, seeing the total number of goals that have flown into the back of their net during their last six outings standing at 2.
In the game prior to this, Crusaders drew 0-0 in the Premiership match with Carrick Rangers.
A series of steadfast performances from the Crusaders defenders has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded amounting to 3 from their last 6 fixtures overall. During the same period of time, their own forwards have managed to score 6. We will find out whether or not that trend will be sustained into this next match.
Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
