The Northern Irish league is hardly strong but Crusaders did ok last year in europe in their home ties, they beat Lithuanian team Ekranas 3-1 and held Swedish team Brommpojkarna 1-1.
The Baltic leagues are also really low quality, so we have two fairly even teams but the away team is 2.0 to win? It doesn't make sense to me, Levadia have won just 2 previous away qualifiers in the champions league with both wins being 0-1 over teams from San Marino and Macedonia the latter was almost 10 years ago. I have watched a few Baltic teams play in europe last season and they were very very poor.
Levadia have recently visited Wales and Ireland in european qualifiers going down to losses vs Bala Town and Drogheda.
I expect a tight match here, Levadia's only advantage is they may be slightly sharper being midway through their season but I think Crusaders with home advantage are more than capable of matching them and possibly winning this tie. I really don't see anything between the teams so the obvious value is on the hosts.
