Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Crewe Alexandra and Blackpool face each other in a highly-anticipated game on day 6 of the new League One campaign. The Railwaymen have already proved their worth in the English third tier, with the team recording back-to-back wins over Hull City and Wigan Athletic in the previous two league fixtures. The newcomers aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s football game.
Defender Donervon Daniels, who suffered an injury in the triumph over Wigan, is rated doubtful for the Blackpool clash. The Seasiders, on the other hand, made a slow start to the season, with the team suffering four defeats, while beating Swindon at home. Since Blackpool experienced all sorts of problems in a 4-1 loss to Ipswich Town, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts this time out.
Highlighted Player (Will Jaaskelainen ):
Will Jaaskelainen is a Finland international who plays for Crewe Alexandra as a goalkeeper. Jaaskelainen started his youth career at Bolton Wanderers, but he made his senior debut with his current club. The Finnish shot-stopper played for the likes of Loughborough Dynamo, Nantwich Town, Buxton, and Chester on loan as well before returning to Crewe Alexandra.
Will Jaaskelainen has one cap for the Finland U19 national team, with the talented goalkeeper making his Finland U21 team debut in a 2-0 win over Ukraine on September 6, 2019. Speaking of his League Two debut, Jaaskelainen played his first match for the Railwaymen on April 19, 2019, in a 2-0 win over Yeovil Town.
The Crewe Alexandra shot-stopper wears the number 1 jersey, and his preferred foot is right. Born on July 25, 1998, in Bolton, Will Jaaskelainen is the son of former Bolton Wanderers and Finland goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen.
Highlighted Team (Blackpool):
Blackpool FC are a professional English club based in Blackpool, Lancashire. Considering that Blackpool is a seaside town, it is no surprise they are nicknamed the Seasiders. Founded back in 1887, the club play their home matches at Bloomfield Road, which can hold up to 17,338 spectators. In the 2009/2010 season Blackpool secured promotion to the Premier League, but they were not competitive at this level, suffering relegation to the Championship the following season.
The club’s biggest success, though, came in 1953 when they defeated Bolton Wanderers 4-3 in the FA Cup final. Blackpool are well known for their orange shirts, but the dominant colour of their away kit is white. Preston are considered the club’s biggest rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the West Lancashire derby.
Charlie Adam, who played for Liverpool and has 26 caps for Scotland national team, is regarded as one of the club’s most notable players.
