Crystal Palace vs Leicester City
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 28 April 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).
The Glaziers made a big step towards securing another Premier League campaign with the 3-2 win over Brighton & Hove Albion in the previous home fixture, but they still have to work hard in order to complete the process in the remaining three games. Southampton are six points away in the danger zone, but the Saints have a game in hand on Crystal Palace, meaning that a failure here against Leicester City would seriously complicate things for Roy Hodgson and his men.
The good news for the hosts is Leicester’s poor run of form as the Foxes took just one point from last three league ties. It’s a bitterly disappointing return for Claude Puel’s side since the opposition included the likes of Newcastle United, Burnley and AFC Bournemouth in the process. Leicester have nowhere to go in the remaining four games of the season, but the French manager will certainly want to keep the top half position by the end of the campaign.
Crystal Palace vs Leicester City: Head-to-head
Leicester City will be motivated to get the revenge for the painful 0-3 loss they suffered at home to Crystal Palace earlier in the campaign.
December’s fixture at King Power marked the run of three straight H2H games with three or more goals for these two rivals.
Palace bagged five in last two meetings with the Foxes.
At home, the Glaziers won 8 and lost 5 of 19 clashes against Leicester City.
Crystal Palace vs Leicester City: Prediction
Hodgson’s side are winless in last three league ties. They’ve shown decent displays in front of the home crowd throughout the season and we definitely see them as the outfit much closer for the spoils than Leicester City here. You can likely remember how Palace narrowly lost home games to Manchester United and Liverpool recently, allowing both of these heavyweights to complete a comeback at Selhurst Park. Leicester’s form is anything but promising and we can hardly see the visitors performing such a comeback. The main pick is Crystal Palace top win at the odds of 2.05.
Moving forward, the Glaziers were pretty efficient in the latest head to head affairs with the Foxes. They also scored three in the previous home tie with Brighton & Hove Albion. You can have them to bag two or more here at the 1.90 odds.
