AFC Bournemouth vs. Crystal Palace Match Analysis and Prediction

Championship seems to be the next destination for Bournemouth if they continue with their display before the corona break. The side has a chance to turn the tables around as they play host to side Crystal Palace at the Vitality Stadium. The match schedules for Saturday with kickoff at 21:45 GMT.

Bournemouth is closed in the relegation zone with 27 points and five points clear of last-placed Norwich City. Before the corona break, the side recorded a series of losses and draws. The last winning from the side was the 2-1 win over Aston Villa.

Coach Eddie Howe faces a lot of pressure to get back the side on track. However, troubles seem to be brewing at the camp. One incidence is the refusal of winger Ryan Fraser to extend his contract. It will see the star leave at the end of the month on a free transfer. Several clubs have an interest in the winger with Newcastle United high on the list.

Crystal Palace is currently 11th on the table with 39 points. Before the corona break, the side registered wins over sides Newcastle, Brighton, and Watford, which sets the pace for the team. Coach Roy Hodgson sets to continue with the winning streak at the Vitality Stadium.
