Cardiff vs Crystal Palace (By: Dajkula)
Cardiff City welcomes Crystal Palace in the 37`th round of the Premier League. There are two matches to be played and Cardiff has to win both. They are 18`th and 4 points deep in the relegation zone. Even if they win and Brighton takes something they are also relegated. They had a piss poor season and they failed to deliver in matches they needed to win. At home, they already lost 10 times. This is one of those matches they need to win but the opponent is highly unpredictable and erratic.
Crystal Palace in 12`th with not much room to move. They play for nothing but play with guts. They have won 4 of the last 5 away matches and Arsenal was their recent victim. They surprised and won with 3:2. Crystal Palace shows a much better attack when traveling and are actually 5`th in the league. With 8-2-8 inconsistency is their biggest problem.
Cardiff has the bigger motivation today but they are out of sorts. They lost 8 of the last 10 matches and look poor in attack. The scored 2 goals and the last 5 matches and that was against Brighton. Now they have to attack and this will suite Palace well.
Both teams have big problems in defense with a lot of missings. Cardiff is missing Bamba, Connoly, Paterson, Ralls. Palace also without defenders Sakho, Schlupp, Tomkins. In the battle of offenses, I see the visitors as winners.
