Date: on the 23rd of February, 2019 (Saturday)
Match start: 18:30 (GMT+1)
Tournament: The Championship of England. The English Premier League.
On Saturday evening on King Power arena will be held the mid level teams that are neighbors in the EPL tournament bracket: Leicester will host Crystal Palace. Despite the places 12 and 13, the situation is different.
The Foxes, generally speaking, can enjoy the games – they won’t leave as well won’t participate in the Euro Cups next year.
Leicester has said goodbye to the hopes with Europe this month – it has left the FA Cup, having lost to modest Newport Country and then in five matches of the championship has gained only one point and is behind the 7 line which doesn’t ensure of course but at least leaves theoretical chances on Euro autumn.
Crystal Palace is behind the Foxes with 1 position but if to consider the number of points, this difference seems to be serious.
Palace has got 27 points and is only with 3 points ahead of Southampton which opens the upper line of the relegation zone.
The Londoners will be glad to gain the victory and to leave the dangerous zone. But Leicester is not going to give up; yes, it has lost some matches but that were strong rivals – Tottenham, Liverpool, MU and Wolverhampton.
And the Foxes have scored goals to almost all of them. The Blues will be able almost for sure at least one goal but will receive the goals as well as for Crystal Palace Leicester is extremely convenient rival (three wins in a row with then total score (9:0).
