West Bromwich Albion can only regret for not making the managerial change earlier in the campaign as the Daren Moore appointment came just a bit too late for the team to be rescued. The Baggies are yet to lose under the new head coach who managed to lead the rock-bottomed side to a streak of three wins and two draws since taking charge.
Sadly, mid-week’s win for Southampton over Swansea City at Liberty Stadium meant a farewell to the salvation dreams for WBA who can still be pride of the super strong finish of the season which saw them beat the likes of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur and hold Liverpool to a draw.
Can the Baggies finish the season without a loss under Moore on the last day when they travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace? The hosts have already secured the top flight status with an impressive run of three wins and a draw in last five league ties and will also want to finish the season on a high here.
Crystal Palace vs West Brom: Head-to-head
WBA were the better side in the history of the H2H encounters with the Glaziers.
Bromwich lead the tie by five wins ahead of the 48th meeting with Crystal Palace.
Nevertheless, WBA failed to find the back of the net in last three clashes with Palace who won two of these before teams shared spoils in a goalless draw at The Hawthorns this season.
Both teams bagged a goal just once on last seven occasions.
Crystal Palace vs West Brom: Prediction
Palace showed super impressive displays in the 5-0 thrashing of Leicester City and a 1-2 win over Stoke City in what was the crucial game for the Potters last weekend. However, it’s hard to believe they will be able to maintain such a strong attacking form against WBA who have been very tough to break down of late. The visitors kept clean sheets in there of last four Premier League matches.
Even though neither of these two outfits can actually make a breakthrough in the league standings, we expect this to be a very competitive affair, following the fact they’ll both want to complete a strong finish of the season with a victory on the final day. Given that just one of last seven head to head encounters saw the option of both teams scoring, we have to try with the BTTS – NO option at 2.05 as the main betting pick.
