Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Crystal Palace play host to Burnley at their Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon. The Eagles did remarkably well to hold league leaders Man City to a goalless draw in their last home game in the Premier League and, to make things even better for the fans, they defeated Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium on Matchday 23. The capital club are eager to secure yet another top flight survival and Saturday’s football match against Burnley is of big importance for Roy Hodgson’s men. The Clarets aim to bounce back from a heavy 4-1 loss to Man City in the FA Cup and it has to be emphasized that they are on a six-game winless run in all competitions. Crystal Palace want this win more than Burnley and we predict the hosts will have a reason for celebration this weekend. The Clarets recorded a 1-0 win over the Eagles earlier this term, meaning that the Selhurst Park outfit are hungry for revenge.
Highlighted Player (Christian Benteke):
Christian Benteke, born on 3th of December 1990 is a Belgian football player with roots from Congo. Benteke started his career at KRC Genk and after playing for Standard Liege, KV Mechelen, KV Kortrijk and Aston Villa the striker got transferred to Liverpool. Benteke is 191cm and is known for being a very strong goal scoring striker. In May 2010 Benteke made his debut for the Belgian national team. Christian Benteke didn’t win any mayor prices yet. In the sason 2008/2009 he won the national league of Belgium. Benteke is signed by Nike and got transferred to Liverpool for 46 million euro which makes him the second most expensive football player from Belgium. Benteke’s nickname is The Beast or Bentegoal.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since.
Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season.
Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
