Crystal Palace and Bournemouth are set to face each other in an exciting match on the 20th of June 2020 at the Selhurst Park stadium. Both teams are looking to secure their places in the Premier League for next season and will be eager to claim all three points.
Crystal Palace, managed by Roy Hodgson, currently sit in 11th place in the Premier League table with 42 points. The Eagles are only 6 points away from the top half of the table and will be hoping to finish the season strongly.
Wilfried Zaha, who has been the standout player for Crystal Palace this season, will be looking to make an impact in this game. The Ivorian has scored three goals and provided three assists in the league so far this season.
Bournemouth, managed by Eddie Howe, are currently in 18th place in the Premier League table with 27 points. The Cherries are in a relegation battle and will be desperate for a win to give them a chance of survival.
Callum Wilson, who has been Bournemouth’s top scorer this season, will be hoping to add to his tally of eight league goals. The Englishman has also provided two assists for his team this season.
The two teams have met 12 times in the Premier League with Crystal Palace winning five times, Bournemouth winning four times, and three draws. In their last meeting in December 2019, Crystal Palace won 1-0 thanks to a goal from Jeffrey Schlupp.
Crystal Palace will be without defender James Tomkins due to a groin injury. However, Mamadou Sakho is expected to return to the starting lineup after recovering from a thigh injury.
Bournemouth will be without defender Steve Cook who is serving a suspension. They will also be without midfielder David Brooks and striker Joshua King who are both injured.
This is a crucial match for both teams and it could go either way. Crystal Palace have been in good form recently and will be confident of getting a result. However, Bournemouth will be fighting for their Premier League survival and will be desperate for a win. I predict a 1-1 draw.
Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth is set to be an exciting match with both teams looking to secure their places in the Premier League for next season. The match could have a huge impact on the relegation battle and both teams will be eager to claim all three points.
