Crystal Palace vs Huddersfield
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 30 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.
Huddersfield have struggled for points and Premier League survival now feels like a wild longshot with a huge 16-point gap to the 17th placed Burnley, as they travel to London for their Matchday 32 clash on Saturday with troubles extending into March and a three-game losing streak behind them.
Terriers have put on tough challenges but still saw points go the other way in losses to Brighton, Bournemouth, and West Ham since early March, where they conceded three goals in the last 15 minutes in a thrilling 4-3 loss at London Stadium ahead of the International break. They’ve snatched just six points on the road this term and this will feel just as worrying, as the rivals come desperate to capitalize and build towards the mid-table.
Crystal Palace come into the match looking for a return to the winning ways of their own, where they suffered narrow losses to Brighton in Premier league and Watford in FA Cup in their last two outings. They’ve conceded late on both occasions and will now hope to finally make the goals scored count with in-form Michy Batshuayi leading the attacking line.
Crystal Palace vs Huddersfield: Head-to-head
Crystal Palace beat Huddersfield in all of their last three head-to-head clashes, including a 0-1 win at the John Smith’s Stadium this term.
Terriers last beat the Eagles back in August 2017, where they bagged a 0-3 win at this ground.
We’ve seen just four goals in the sides last three matchups as Palace narrowly turned them their way.
Crystal Palace vs Huddersfield: Prediction
We will now back Crystal Palace to turn another narrow occasion their way and we’ll go for a Home win to Nil at 2.05, hoping to see them shut down the rivals once again despite their struggles to keep it together at the back more recently.
Indeed, Terriers struggled to score goals on the road and the three scored at West Ham are out of the ordinary as they ended a streak of six trips without a goal. We thus hope not to see many on the day and we’ll also back a low-scoring contest with Under 2.5 goals FT, which comes at 1.72!
