At 1/25 Fulham aren’t worth backing in the Europa League against Crusaders but bet365 offer 17/5 for it to produce fewer than 2.5 goals.
Fulham have essentially done the hard work in their Europa League qualifying tie against Crusaders, beating the Northern Irish outfit 3-1 in Belfast and as a result, Stan James make them just 1/25 to complete the job with a second leg victory back on home soil.
It’s difficult to see any other outcome at Craven Cottage, where Boylesports rate Martin Jol’s men at 8/13 to prevail by at least three clear goals and price them at 1/3 to lead at the end of each half.
In the second leg against NSI Runavik, Fulham took their foot off the gas knowing that progression was all but guaranteed and the contest subsequently finished goalless. The same could happen in this match, even though this time the Cottagers are in front of their own supporters and so with very few big prices around for outcomes related to a home win, and a Fulham clean sheet (8/11, ) likely, a small flutter on a low-scoring match could be worth considering; bet365 post 17/5 against it producing fewer than three goals.
Under 2.5 goals – 17/5 (bet365)
