Will it be the Eagles who soar high in victory, or will the Hornets provide a sting in the tail. Click to watch the live stream!
Crystal Palace takes on Watford in the second FA Cup semi-final of the weekend on Apr. 24 at the famous Wembley Stadium in London, England. But there can only be one team that makes it through to the final in a game where there has to be a result and there can’t be any replays. Who will it be? Click to watch the live stream and find out!
Watford have deserved a FA Cup semi-final berth after disposing of previous holders Arsenal in the quarter-finals, as well as Leeds United, Nottingham Forest and Newcastle United. It’s been a tough road, with potential banana skins along the way but they’ve managed to avoid them all.
Crystal Palace have negotiated their own tricky route to get this far, disposing of Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton, Stoke City and Reading. It can’t be argued that both these teams have warranted their place in the semi-finals so far.
These two have played each other at Wembley as recently as 2013 in the Championship playoff game for a place in the Premier League. Palace was victorious that day, earning a 1-0 win after extra time. Watford will definitely be looking for revenge this time round.
Neutral venue, two teams evenly matched, it will be a fight to the end — with both teams hungry for FA Cup success. Maybe, just maybe we’ll stick our necks on the line and predict a Palace win, but there’s not much between these two teams.
