All roads lead to Seaview this evening as Crusaders play host to Swiss club FC Basel in the UEFA Europa Conference League, kick-off 8pm.

The Crues trail 2-0 from last week's first leg but will be hoping home advantage will give them a boost as they strive to progress to the third qualifying round.

Stephen Baxter's side put up an impressive showing seven days ago only to be undone by a goal in each half from Dan Ndoye and Adam Szalai.

Basel limbered up for tonight's game with a 1-1 draw at home to Servette in the domestic Super League at the weekend.

The aggregate winner of the tie will go through to meet either Polish side Pogon Szczecin or Br√łndby from Denmark.
