Ground level video footage of Martin Dubravka saves in Crystal Palace 1 Newcastle 0 look even better

2 years ago

Not many positives to take from Crystal Palace 1 Newcastle 0.

Luck very much on Steve Bruce’s side, as a terrible performance was only punished by the one goal.

Apart from luck, Martin Dubravka was the other main factor in keeping the score down.

The Newcastle keeper making a series of stunning saves.

No doubt most of you will have seen the goals but Crystal Palace have now released some special ground level footage (watch below) of the game.

Dubravka’s saves looking even better for me on this footage.

If you want to go direct to some of the top/main moment:

1.45 – Stunning Dubravka save from a Cahill header

2.55 – Another brilliant reaction save by Dubravka from Dann

6.02 – van Aanholt goal

8.05 – Excellent Dubravka save

8.25 – Lazaro red card incident
