PREDICTION
Both of these teams come into this game in good form right now but Palace will consider a point as an excellent result against a team that has won their last four. Leicester have not found it quite as easy at home when teams sit back against them and this one could easily be a stalemate.

MEMORABLE MEETING
The 1996 Division One (second tier) play-off final was contested by Crystal Palace and Leicester at Wembley and it would be the Foxes who would find themselves in the Premier League the following season. This was thanks to a 2-1 win which was sealed by Steve Claridge’s winner in the last minute of extra time.
