Who will win the match between Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace?
After two tough back-to-back games against Arsenal and Manchester City, Aston Villa recorded a much-needed 0-2 win on the road the last game week against Everton. And they are hoping to build from here.
It helps their cause that they are at home, where they have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes in the past seven-year period barring one draw.
Moreover, Palace won just thrice on the road in league games in the past 11 months, and two of these wins came against teams currently placed 19th and 20th in the table.
As things stand, expect a win for Aston Villa this weekend.
How many goals can be expected?
The latest h2h encounter was a four-goal affair, and four of the past five clashes had three or more goals. Moreover, the last four fixtures of Villa produced 18 goals in total, while their counterparts could muster a single clean sheet on the road in the past five months.
It looks like goals are coming in plenty this Saturday.
Will Both Teams Score in the match?
Villa might have the edge this weekend, but note that they let in eight goals from their past two appearances at home. They also registered their last clean sheet at home back in October.
Likely, both teams are expected to find the back of the net this weekend.
Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Analysis
Villa are in high in confidence after their 0-2 win on the road against Everton – and on top of that they also have a near-perfect h2h record against this rival at this venue in the past seven years.
Moreover, Palace could win just thrice on the road in the past 11-month period, and all three of these wins came against teams currently placed 16th or below in the table.
As such, Aston Villa to Win at 2.10 would be a neat pick.
But do note that they have not fared well in defense lately. They conceded four or more goals in their last two appearances at home, and their latest clean sheet at this ground came almost five months back.
As a result, the Both Teams to Score wager looks strong at 2.00 odd.
