Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 12th May 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).
Crystal Palace has been a bit steady in the last few match-days, disregarding few minor hitches. But it can be cast under the rug, citing that most of them were against top-six teams. It boosts their confidence that they are at home for this final match-day, and that too against a team that has severely disappointed their fans on the road, with dismal performances.
Bournemouth started their season well, and fought for the top spots for quite some time, before regressing to the mean. The team found it hard to give their best on the road, and their only such wins have been against relegation-threatened teams, and on a rare occasion, against Watford.

Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth Prediction
Bournemouth has been a terrible performer on the road. All season, they have registered away wins just against relegation-threatened teams, and Watford. At one point, they went through a ten-game losing streak away from home. The team also conceded two or more goals in 11 of their last 14 road fixtures.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, was unbeaten in four of their last five matches, and even won against Arsenal during this while. With the home advantage, count on the team to deliver a good performance to wrap up their season.
Bournemouth needs something from this tie to save face in front of their fans. It’s true that the team couldn’t hold themselves to the high standards they set at the beginning of the season. But, they will try again next time, and cannot just roll over in this game which will likely affect their confidence.
The team will fight, and moreover, five of the last six h2h encounters and 100% of such clashes at this venue had goals from both teams. Moreover, Crystal Palace conceded two or more goals in three of their last five home ties as well. Expect both teams to find the back of the net.
