Crystal Palace vs Derby Prediction

Crystal Palace have been showing good composure in the Premier League games lately. Evidently, they drew the last two fixtures on the road against Southampton and Norwich. Also, they have lost only one of their last five matches and that too on the road.

At home, Crystal Palace is on a three-game unbeaten streak recently. This shows they have been utilizing their home ground advantage in their games. So, we can expect the host to perform better against the Championship side.

On the other hand, Derby is at the bottom part of the Championship table this season. Even so, they are slowly crawling up the table. However, they are visiting Crystal Palace after a 2-1 win over Charlton at home in their previous fixture.

Besides that, the Rams have been winless in the remaining seven matches before that in their overall schedule. Also, they have not won any of their previous twelve league away fixtures in the major competitions.

Hence, we can expect the Rams to lose in a clash against a team performing well in the Premier League. So, Crystal Palace has more chance of winning the game in ninety minutes. Also, we can expect a low score in the match, probably under 2.5 goals.
