Crystal Palace vs Wolves
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 6th October 2018
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park (London).
The Eagles have not been doing well in the last 3 home games and will aim at making the best out of this home game slated for this weekend. They are coming into this game from a loss in the hands of Bournemouth at the beginning of this week.
They will strive to get something out of this home game and climb in the league standing. However, this may prove hard as they will be facing a more fierce side. Another factor which may affect their performance is the fact they will have four of their main men out with injury, including the high flying Christian Benteke.
Wolves remain determined to dominate the EPL just after being undefeated in their last 5 fixtures. In fact, they are coming from a home win against Southampton and a 1-1 draw against the Red Devils. Their persistence has shocked many, including their league counterparts who need to be more cautious.
They have no new injury concerns and this makes me think that there will be no changes in their starting XI. Helder Costa continues recovering and will definitely miss the match.
Crystal Palace vs Wolves: Head-to-Head
- These two sides have not met in the EPL for the last 5 years ten years. They have only met in other competitions.
- In the last 5 h2h meetings, the Eagles have registered 3 wins while Wolves have only won once. Additionally, only one draw have been recorded.
- Most matches have ended with both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals.
Crystal Palace vs Wolves: Prediction
The Eagles will surely want to measure up to the strong force they are facing at home. This will make them strive to exploit every chance they have to put the ball into the net. They have to redeem themselves from the loss in their last EPL match by delivering a good result in this home game.
Wolves are currently at the peak of their performance and will not stop at anything to scoop a point or all 3 points in every fixture. They will come into this match to win or worse, settle for a draw. What seems the most viable outcome of this matchup is both teams scoring and over 2.5 goals as no side will relent to put the other down.
Crystal Palace vs Wolves: Betting Tip
Both teams to score @ 9/10 (1.90).
