Crystal Palace take on the visitors Aston Villa in the round 3 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, August 20th at Selhurst Park (London)
Crystal Palace continues they project launched last year. The "Glaziers" under the previous manager, Hodgson, were able to gradually earn mid-table team status in English football. But gradually, Steve Parish got bored with it, and in 2021 he decided on a radical update, and with an emphasis on rejuvenation. This even affected the coaching post: instead of “Old Roy”, Vieira came. They recruited a bunch of promising players, and the first year turned out to be worthy. There was no sensation, no real breakthrough, but there is progress, both in the game and in the results - it is not surprising that this trend continued in the new transfer window. True, the new championship began with a bitter defeat to Arsenal. And on Monday they showed class, sharing points with Liverpool.

Aston Villa play first full season under Gerrard. The Villans sold their best player, Grealish, a year ago. And the then manager never figured out how to play without Jack. For this, he paid off with a position in November, and in Birmingham they made a risky decision to lure Stephen from the Rangers. At least he did well, he managed to comfortably finish in the middle of the table, in 14th place, with 45 points. But what's next? It is noteworthy that the attack was strengthened conditionally by buying Coutinho's contract from Barcelona. But in defense they made a number of interesting signings: they acquired Diego Carlos from Sevilla, took Bubacar Camara as a free agent and loaned Augustinsson. True, Aston Villa started the new season with a failure, with 0-2 against newcomer Bournemouth. But further at home, Ingz and Buendia scored from Watkins' passes, which was enough to win over Everton.
Crystal Palace have only 1 win in their last 5 matches against Aston Villa with 3 losses. Last season, "Billans" took 4 points out of 6 possible. Crystal Palace play at home and look good. It's time for them to win, but we will insure ourselves with a "zero" handicap.
Prediction for the match: Crystal Palace to win with 0.0 handicap.
