Crystal Palace vs Burnley
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 29 June 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.
Both these teams are currently level on points, and are placed tenth and eleventh in the table. However, they are just three points away from the final European spot, currently in possession of Tottenham.
Other than the Spurs, there are Arsenal as well as Sheffield United on top of the Glaziers and the Clarets in league standings.
It needs to be mentioned that the Blades are taking on the Spurs next, and as such, and one of them will surely be dropping points. As such, whoever wins the upcoming encounter at the Selhurst Park, will gain considerable momentum in their race to qualify for Europe.
As such, it’s going to be a fierce set of ninety minutes for either team. However, considering the recent impressive form of the Glaziers, and their h2h record over this opponent, it’s thought that Crystal Palace are on course to record a win this Monday.
Crystal Palace vs Burnley: Head-to-head (h2h)

Crystal Palace vs Burnley: Prediction
The Glaziers lost 4-0 on the road the last match-day, against Liverpool. However, the heavy loss cannot be held against the team, as the Reds are just that good a team at the moment. It’s no shame to lose against them.
In the meantime, the Clarets recorded a 1-0 win at home the past match-day, against Watford. The sole goal of the fixture came late into the second half, in the 73rd minute.
In terms of the result for the coming Monday, the Glaziers seem the favorites. They were on a four-game winning run before their loss against Liverpool, and they also had not conceded a single goal in these four match-ups.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in three of their preceding four overall games, and had a total of four wins away from home this whole season. Importantly, three of these total four wins had come against the bottom-six of the Premier League table.
Moreover, the Glaziers are on a four-game winning run against this rival, and at this venue, they have lost just once in the past 19 years. Taking into account these observations, expect Crystal Palace to deliver the better performance.
