Our football match prediction:
Liverpool face Crystal Palace in the opening match of their Premier League Asia Trophy campaign. The Reds have been producing fine performances in the pre-season and Jurgen Klopp’s men are certainly brimming with confidence ahead of Wednesday’s football match. The German tactician mixed the squad in previous warm-up games, but he is likely to field the best possible side against the capital club. Crystal Palace, on the other hand, failed to impress in the 2016/2017 Premier League season and they are determined to make amends for the unsuccessful campaign. In each of last ten meetings between the two teams over 2.5 goals were netted and a high-scoring affair appears on the cards. When the two teams met in the Premier League earlier this year Crystal Palace recorded a 2-1 win over Liverpool at Anfield and, no doubt, the Reds are desperate to get their revenge on the Eagles.
Highlighted Player (Mohamed Salah):
Mohamed Salah is considered one of the best African players. Salah began his senior career at El Mokawloon, scoring 11 goals in 41 league appearances for the club and in 2012 he moved to Europe, signing a four-year deal with Swiss side Basel. The pacey winger, who is capable of playing as a striker as well was producing outstanding displays for the RotBlau from 2012 to 2014 and, as a result, Chelsea chiefs decided to sign him on 26 January, 2015 for a fee of £11 million. Mohamed Salah, though, failed to impress in the Premier League and one year later he was sent on loan to Fiorentina. After making 16 league appearances for the Viola in the Serie A, the left-footed winger signed a loan deal with Roma on 6 August, 2015. The Romans made the contract permanent on 3 August, 2016. Speaking of his international career, Salah made his Egypt debut on 3 September, 2011 in a 2-1 loss to Sierra Leone. It has to be noted that he was named Roma’s player of the season (2015/2016).
