Crystal Palace take on the visitors Huddersfield at “Selhurst Park” in the opening round of the England’s Premier League of 2017/2018 season. The game will be played in London on Saturday, August 12th.
Crystal Palace had unstable season last year in the Premier League sitting quite long in the relegation zone with a series of successful matches afterwards and then failing at the end of the season. Nevertheless, despite the ups and downs, the club managed to pick up 41 points allowing the team to occupy the 14th place in the table of last season’s Premier League. This summer “The Eagles” have conducted five friendly encounters having won two times with two draws and defeat gained in them, scoring and conceding regularly in each clash.

In regards to Huddersfield, the team performed in the Championship last season, having finished the main part settling on the fifth position with 81 points taken and 56-58 goal difference. “The Terriers” gained a right to join the Premier League in the Play Offs, at first having played 0:0, 1:1 against Sheffield Wed defeating them only by penalty shoot-outs and then having played 0:0 draw match vs. Reading also breaking them only by penalties. This summer Huddersfield have conducted seven friendlies getting ready for the start in the elite division with three victories, two draws and two losses recorded.
Crystal Palace and Huddersfield have met eight times for the last 20 years covering three triumphs of “The Terriers”, single victory of “The Eagles” and four draws. I believe that the hots as the more experienced and balanced side will win.
Prediction for the match: Crystal Palace to win.
