Crystal Palace vs Leeds
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 9 October 2022
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.
Both Leeds and Crystal Palace are going through rather poor stretches of performances at the moment, and are letting in goals in huge numbers. They are struggling to stay at least in the mid-table, and as such are under intense pressure.
Palace are placed 17th in a table of 20 at the moment, and won just once till now. They are currently on a four-game winless run in the competition, and all along they let in goals in plenty.
They are level on points with the 18th placed Wolves, who are in the relegation zone. In fact, the dead-last placed Nottingham trail by just two points below them.
Going on, their sole win in the current edition of the PL came against the struggling Aston Villa, and they are also finding it hard to deliver good performances at home for some time.
Meanwhile, Leeds are also on a four-fixture winless run in the PL, and they managed to deliver just two wins so far. They also have a 100% winless record on the road, and barring a single draw, it becomes a 100% losing record.
Furthermore, goals also came in plenty whenever these two teams locked horns in the past.
By the looks of things, expect a high-scoring affair this weekend at the Selhurst Park.
