Barnet vs. Crystal Palace – Prediction, Team News, Lineups:
Premier League side Crystal Palace will start their pre-season preparations with a short trip to face Barnet on Tuesday. Barnet, who finished fifth in the National League last season, narrowly missed out on promotion to the Football League after losing in the playoffs.
Barnet will enter their sixth successive season in England’s fifth tier, aiming to push for promotion once again. Crystal Palace, on the other hand, has enjoyed a decade of success in the Premier League, securing a comfortable finish in the previous season.
Both teams have made new signings and will field competitive lineups. Barnet will be boosted by the performances of their players in a draw against Norwich City in their first pre-season game. Crystal Palace, despite uncertainties surrounding the future of Wilfried Zaha, has promising young talents and experienced players to rely on.
Barnet fans will be eager to see their new signings in action, including Callum Stead, Sam Barratt, Zak Brunt, Reece Hall-Johnson, Ben Coker, and Adebola Oluwo. Marvin Armstrong, who scored in their previous match, will be full of confidence.
Crystal Palace will be missing Michael Olise due to a severe hamstring tear. Eberechi Eze may not be risked after recently making his international debut for England. New signing Jefferson Lerma could make his unofficial debut for the club.
Possible Starting Lineups:
Barnet: Walker; Hall-Johnson, Oluwo, Collinge, Revan, Coker; Armstrong, Gorman; Senior, Kabamba, Pritchard
Johnstone; Ferguson, Richards, Tomkins, Mitchell; Lerma, Doucoure; Ayew, Ahamada, Schlupp; Edouard
