Our prediction for this match:
AFC Wimbledon will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Metropolitan Police and Hampton & Richmond when they take on Crystal Palace in their last warm-up game ahead of the start of the new League One campaign. The Dons have been scoring goals for fun in pre-season, but they will have a much bigger fish to fry in Tuesday’s friendly against the Premier League club.
The Eagles quickly bounced back from an embarrassing 6-2 defeat to Barnet, with the team rolling over Bristol City 5-0 in their last warm-up match. Andros Townsend, who found the net in the victory over the Robins, is likely to pose a big threat for AFC Wimbledon defenders. Despite the fact that Wilfried Zaha, who represented Ivory Coast at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, has yet to return to the squad, we believe that there is a value in betting on the Eagles.
Highlighted Player (Luka Milivojevic):
Born in Kragujevac, Serbia on April 7, 1991, Luka Milivojevic is a product of his home-town club Radnicki Kragujevac. After making 17 appearances for the club in the 2007/2008 season, Milivojevic joined fellow Serbian Super Liga team Rad at the end of the season. The 186-cm-tall midfielder, who is well known for his brilliant long-range shots, played for “Gradjevinari” from 2008 to 2012 and then he moved to famous Serbian club Crvena zvezda (Red Star).
Luka Milivojevic scored seven goals in 36 appearances in the league for the capital club, but at the end of the 2012/2013 season he signed a five-year deal with Belgian outfit Anderlecht. During the 2013/2014 season the Serbian midfielder was on Olympiakos’ radar and he soon joined the Greek giants.
Milivojevic quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Olympiakos, but in January, 2017 the club chiefs decided to sell him to Premier League side Crystal Palace. It has to be noted that the Serbia international scored two goals in 14 appearances for the Eagles in the 2016/2017 Premier League campaign.
