Crystal Palace vs Newcastle United
English Premier League
Date: Friday, 27 November 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.
The Magpies are going through a worrying stretch at the moment – that they have secured a total of just one win in the league from their past five attempts. They have also had a single win on the road this whole season, and that came three months back.
Going on, they also have an unimpressive h2h record against this opponent in recent years, and particularly so at the Selhurst Park.
Meanwhile, the Glaziers are gunning for a spot in the top-10. They did experience an unexpected loss the last match-day, against the struggling Burnley – and the team will be determined to make amends for that setback very soon.
Likely, expect Crystal Palace to have the upper hand this Friday at home.

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle United: Prediction
Roy Hodgson’s men lost 1-0 on the road the last match-day, against Burnley. In the meantime, the Magpies lost 0-2 at home the past game week, against Chelsea.
Going on, Bruce’s men are on a two-fixture losing run, and they have a combined scorecard of 0-4 in the process. They were also winless in six of their last eight matches, and they have a total of a single league win away from home this whole campaign.
On the other hand, their counterparts were unbeaten in 11 of their preceding 15 games, and they remained so in seven of their last eight home appearances.
In fact, the Glaziers have a single loss at home this season, and it had come against the Toffees – who have been one of the best teams in the English top flight in 2020-21.
Going on, Hodgson’s men had recorded a 4-1 win the last time they played at home, and the victory had come against Leeds.
Moreover, they also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the past few years, and specially so at this venue.
As such, expect Crystal Palace to dominate proceedings at the Selhurst Park this weekend.
