Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace England – Premier League Date: Sunday, 15 May 2022 Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET Venue: Villa Park.
Both these teams have effectively ruled out participation in any of the European competitions next season. They are comfortably placed in the mid table, and have also eliminated a threat of getting relegated.
As far as they are concerned, they need to end their campaign on a positive note, in order to have good hopes about the upcoming campaign. Lately, both the squads have been conceding goals in huge numbers, and have dropped several points as well.
But still they have managed to produce some good wins too. Despite struggling with their defense, they have managed to test opposing back lanes. More importantly, whenever these two have locked horns with each other in the past, goals have come in plenty.
As such, when Aston Villa and Crystal Palace take on each other this weekend at the Villa Park, expect a high-scoring affair.
