AFC Bournemouth welcomes Crystal Palace
AFC Bournemouth welcomes Crystal Palace at the Vitality Stadium in a match from the 30th round of the Premier League. Both teams will play their first games since three months of time, so we will be curious to see in what kind of shape they are going to be. Let’s take a look in our free soccer tips website.
For Bournemouth every point they win would be decisive until the end of the campaign. The Cherries are one of the teams currently in the relegation zone, but still fighting to be in the league next season, too. At this moment Bournemouth are 18th with 27 points, but on par with West Ham and Watford. We expect a brutal fight for survival in the remaining weeks.
Bournemouth’s manager Eddie Howe has some squad problems before this game. Philip Billing, Aaron Ramsdale, Simon Francis and Charlie Daniels are missing the next fixture because of injuries.
Before this game Eddie Howe said that his team is ready to fight for survival “with all they got”. What’s going to happen in the next weeks will be decisive for the club.
Crystal Palace are breathing much easier now with being 11th in the league with 39 points. The experience of the manager Roy Hodgson is really helping the team to stay on a safe distance from the dangerous zone. So far Palace have a record of 10 wins, 9 draws and 10 losses – perfectly balanced as we might say.
The Turkish striker Cenk Tosun remains injured for Crystal Palace. Roy Hodgson will have to make his line-up without his services.
