TIME: 18:00 UTC


In their preparations for the resumption of the Premier League season, Palace have been involved in a series of friendly matches to regain match fitness, next in competitive action at home to Fulham on Boxing Day.

 

Although the results of the matches will not be deemed as important as the team getting match practice, Patrick Vieira may be a little disappointed that his side are winless in their previous three encounters.

 

The first match that the Eagles contested finished goalless against Botafogo, fielding an experimental team, with youngsters Malcolm Ebiowei, Sean Grehan and Tayo Adaramola all getting minutes.

 

Following that, Palace drew 2-2 with Trabzonspor, with Odsonne Edouard and Jean-Philippe Mateta both getting on the scoresheet, before losing 3-1 against first-placed Serie A side Napoli in Turkey, despite Wilfried Zaha opening the scoring.

 

 

With the side from South London winning three of their last four Premier League matches before the season was paused for the World Cup, they currently sit 11th in the standings, and Vieira will be hoping to use this final friendly match as a catapult to continue their impressive domestic form.

 

Crystal Palace possible starting lineup:
Butland; Clyne, Guehi, Tomkins, Ward, Schlupp; Milivojevic, Hughes, Olise, Eze; Edouard

 

Real Valladolid possible starting lineup:
Asenjo; Feddal, Rosa, Fresneda, Fernandez; Malsa, Perez, Plano; Narvaez, Weissmann, Arroyo
