Our football match prediction:
Crystal Palace and Huddersfield Town, the two Championship sides, square off against each other at London Stadium in the third round of the League Cup. The Eagles made a very slow start to the season and they suffered a loss in each of their first five league fixtures. New coach Roy Hodgson marked his debut with a 1-0 loss to Southampton and, no doubt, the capital club are eager to get back on course. Crystal Palace defeated Ipswich Town in their League Cup opener, but Tuesday’s football match against Huddersfield Town will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. The Terriers have been producing fine showings at the start of the season and they are definitely capable of spoiling Crystal Palace’s party at Selhurst Park. When the two teams met in the English top flight earlier this term Huddersfield hammered Palace 3-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
