Pre Season

Watch highlights and each penalty from Crystal Palace's pre-season clash with FC Luzern

10 July 2019

A match that saw two goals buried within six minutes of commencing was ultimately decided with a flurry of 11 goals in as many minutes as Crystal Palace ran-out victors over FC Luzern in their first pre-season test.

The game got off to a lightning start with Christian Benteke burying with his head as Palace capitalised on their first effort at goal.

Shortly after, however, the Swiss' Pascal Schürpf netted from equally close range to level the scoring. 85 minutes later and the Eagles were forced into a rare penalty shoot-out, a competition they edged thanks to a make-shift group of spot-kick takers converting every effort from the spot versus Luzern's only near-perfect record.
