Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace, English League Cup 2020-21, Match Prediction

Bournemouth and Crystal Palace lock horns in the second round game of the English League Cup on Tuesday night.

Team Preview 

Crystal Palace takes off the Premier League 2020-21 campaign with a 1-0 victory over Southampton in the Premier League, courtesy of Wilfried Zaha’s strike in the 13th minute. The Eagles had a disappointing season in 2019-20 and they needed a positive start to their campaign. Nathan Ferguson, Eberechi Eze, and Michy Batshuayi are the new signings in the Eagles camp. Zaha could leave the club under the transfer window and it can disturb Palace’s journey to improve their game this new season. 

Meanwhile, Bournemouth is also selling Nathan Ake and Callum Wilson to Manchester City and Newcastle United respectively. The Cherries edged past Blackburn on their Championship return with a 3-2 victory on Saturday. Arnaut Danjuma netted a winner in the 84th minute to help Bournemouth to get three points in the tournament opener. Tindall is confident with his new task as the boss.
