Liverpool vs Crystal Palace
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 24 June 2020
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Mathematically, the Reds need five more points to secure the league title. They will surely aim to wrap up the competition by this game week itself.
Considering that any point dropped by Manchester City will reduce the distance for Jurgen Klopp’s men towards the English crown, chances are high for the Reds to seal the deal in the coming few days.
However, they do have the work cut out for them this Wednesday, in the form of the Eagles. Not only are they going after a European spot, but as per current form (four-game winning streak in the PL), they could be considered one of the best teams in the competition at present.
Still, the huge amount of talent at disposal for Klopp, plus the confidence they have gained from the last two years, along with the impressive h2h record they hold over the Eagles – all should combine to present the three points for Liverpool.
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Reds are on a six-match winning run against this opponent.
- The Eagles conceded a total of 20 goals from the prior nine encounters.
- Klopp’s men won the reverse fixture with a 1-2 scoreline on the road.
- Since 1994, not once have the Reds failed to score goals at this venue in a league match-up.
- The hosts scored four goals the last time these two clashed at this stadium.
Liverpool vs Crystal Palace: Prediction
The Reds were held to a scoreless draw the last match-day on the road, by Everton. Had they won that game, a win in this fixture would have presented them the title. Still, they did manage to reduce the required points from six to five.
In the meantime, the Eagles recorded a 0-2 win on the road the past match-day, against Bournemouth. Despite the current form of the former, the Reds are still favorites this Wednesday. They have been the best team in Europe for the past two years running.
On top of that, they are on a six-match winning run against this opponent, and scored a total of 20 goals from the last nine h2h clashes. Moreover, for all their heroics, the Eagles could manage a total of just five road wins this season, and only one of them was against a team from the top tier.
Most importantly, at this venue, the hosts are on a 26-game unbeaten run, and even managed to win an impressive 23 of those. Considering these stats, count on a Liverpool win this Wednesday.
