Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Crusaders FC is one of the most interesting matches of UEFA Europa League qualification quarter-final. Wolves are strong favorites to be among teams in the main Europa League tournament. After the last season, Wolverhampton looks very confident before the upcoming season, especially playing at Molineux Stadium, in Wolverhampton. The teams have absolutely different levels of class, so this match should be interesting mostly for Wolves fans, but of course, this is a sport and unpredictable things can happen.
Wolverhampton finished last season as great as it was possible. They took the 7th place in Premier League standing just after the greatest competition teams. Last year, their game caused fear especially among the top clubs, since their results against such teams were incredibly good. The team game on the road was much weaker than at home. Nuno Espírito Santo did a great job at the club. In 2017, he became a new coach and led the team from Championship to the Premier League in the first season of work. In the second season, he has already reached UEFA Europa League qualification by taking 7th place in Premier League just behind the best clubs of England.
The head coach of the team for 2 seasons called a lot of talented, young and promising players who have already shown their capabilities. A large number of Portuguese players and the mentality of the coach gave to team an opportunity to play very technical, dangerous and smart football. Wolves at home playing very attacking football, but not always able to keep the clean sheet. These two seasons fans of the team supported them very much and playing at home gave them a big advantage against opponents.
Crusaders FC are far away even beeing favorites in Northern Ireland Championship, all the more so upcoming match should be very difficult playing at Wolves home ground. The Hatchetmen won their last 6 games. Moreover, they won the Northern Ireland Irish Cup against Ballinamallard in 3:0 smashing match.
Crusaders already beat B36 Torshavn in two straight wins in the first round of Qualification. However, they can only hope for the mistakes and miracle of the following opponent if they want to go further in this qualification. The club that appeared in 1898 is far behind the level of the game in Europe. In the entire history of participation in the qualification for the Champions League and Europa Lague, the team did not go beyond the second round.
