Cardiff will face Crystal Palace at Cardiff City Stadium, in Cardiff, at 37th Round of English Premier League. Cardiff against Crystal Palace is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in English Premier League. This round is very important fighting for positions in the league. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Cardiff City has only 2 games and a small chance to save themselves in Premier League. Now team stands at 18th place and have 4 points difference with Brighton. This season team has won 9 games and lost 23. In their last 10 matches in Premier League, they lost 8 and won only twice. The Bluebirds won against Brighton a few weeks ago what gave them chances to save their place in the highest English league. This team is mentally and physically strong, however, their skills are better suited for Championship. Hosts failed to score in 4 of their last 5 PL games.
Young Spanish Victor Camarasa is a team leader by scored goals (5) and made assists (4). They are great at creating scoring chances, however, struggling at finishing that. In the last 5 Premier League games, Cardiff played with under 3 goals in each. Very likely that Cardiff will take a lot of shots and attempt crosses often. All main squad players are fit and ready to play possibly one of the last game in Premier League for the upcoming year.
Crystal Palace this season look strong playing confidently even against strongest teams. They stand at 12 positions and by road games, they are showing the 6th best result in the League. Away, Crystal Palace won 8 games and collected 26 points in total. To compare, Chelsea and Manchester United have only 3 points more than the Eagles. In the last 5 away games, Crystal Palace won 4 and lost only once against Tottenham on their new Stadium. Guests showed their abilities in the last two games, by playing a draw against Everton even fully losing the possession and a great win at Emirates against Arsenal 3:2.
Wilfred Saha is the leading player of the squad with 9 goals and 3 assists this season in PL. However, defensive midfield Luka Milivojevic already scored 12 goals and took the first place in the team by scored goals. This team is strongly depended on Zaha since he is the main attacking person with very great skills and that is very strange why English Giants did not sign him already. This season the competition is very big and it is difficult to play against even middle-class clubs. However, there are 2 matches left and they can get 6 more points, though they cannot rise above 11 places.
These teams played already one time this season at Selhurst Park, in London. Crystal Palace made 31 goal attempt but failed to score a goal, so that match finished with a 0:0 draw.
