Burnley vs Crystal Palace Prediction
Burnley are in the groove at the moment and have been tasting nothing but success in their last two games. The hosts pulled off a 3-0 win over Watford in their last clash on the road. Prior to that matchup, they took down West Ham by that very same scoreline.
It is also worth mentioning that the Clarets have looked solid on home soil as well. They have emerged victoriously in three of their past four clashes here, garnering nine points from a possible twelve in the process.
As of now, the home side are sitting seventh on the ladder, with a three-point advantage over Crystal Palace who are currently thirteenth.
Roy Hodgson’s men have been hit by a sharp decline in form. The visitors are on a five-match winless streak at present and have been at the losing end in each of their past three games on the trot.
They would have salvaged a point in their most recent matchup with Liverpool though, had it not been for Roberto Firminho’s late winner to post a 2-1 scoreline. To make matters worse, Crystal Palace are without a win in their previous two outings.
Taking into account that two out of their last three visits here have also seen them admit defeat, the tag of favorites most certainly goes to Burnley in this one.
Be that as it may, Crystal Palace have deprived Burnley of the win in half of their last ten h2h games here. Also, considering that the visitors did force Arsenal to share the spoils with them in one of their recent outings as well, the safest punt would have to be a Draw no bet, backing the Clarets.
Furthermore, the hosts have looked organized at the back. They have kept a clean sheet in four of their past six games here. The only two occasions where they could not keep one were against Liverpool and Chelsea.
With half of their previous six h2h meetings at this venue also featuring fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, expect goals to be hard to come by in this one.
