Two teams from the bottom tier of the Premier League take on each other in the 14th round of First Division English Football. Crystal Palace hosts Burnley at the Selhurst Park, this Saturday.

Burnley has posted nine points on the board after securing two wins, three draws and eight losses. They have scored 13 goals in the process and conceded 27. Burnley occupies the 17th spot in the table, just above the relegation line.

Crystal Palace finds themselves at the 16th spot, just above Burnley. They too have registered nine points on the table. Two wins, three draws and eight losses. They have scored just eight goals in their entire campaign, and has conceded 17.

Burnley lost their last league fixture, at home, against Newcastle United. The final scoreline was 1-2 in favor of the visitors. Burnley also had the humiliation of scoring an own goal. All three goals were in the first half.

Crystal Palace can boast of a minor achievement, that they traveled to Old Trafford last weekend, and survived without a loss. Mourinho’s men played out a dull draw with Palace. The whole ninety minutes remained goalless. The gaffer of the home team had tried three substitutions in succession to change the fate of the game. But it didn’t work out.

Crystal Palace vs Burnley Prediction

A dull match is on the cards for the fans as Crystal Palace, the team which has scored the least number of goals so far in the Premier League, takes on another low-scoring side. Palace has scored just a total of eight goals from their 13 games.

Only one or none of the teams have scored in seven of the last nine games of Palace’s home games. 10 of last 13 head-to-head ties, involving these two teams, had the same stat too.

Nine of last 11 head-to-head matches had under 2.5 match goals. Eight of last ten games, at this stadium, between these teams had only one or none of the teams on the scoresheet.

Six of the last seven head-to-head games, at this ground, had under 2.5 match goals.

All these stats point to just one conclusion. The match will be a low goal-scoring affair. There’s negligible chance that both teams will get on the scoresheet.
