The hosts announced a strong Championship run under Graham Potter who saw his men win back-to-back matches against Sheffield United and Preston North End in two inaugural fixtures of the competition. However, they went on to take no more than two points from three following ties, a streak which was continued with a disappointing 0-1 defeat to Bristol City on Saturday afternoon at Liberty.

Swansea City vs Crystal Palace: Head-to-head

  • Swansea City controlled the proceedings in the most recent history of head to head games against the Glaziers.
  • The Swans won three and drew one of last four H2H encounters.
  • Crystal Palace won no more than three of 16 H2H matches with Swansea City.
  • The Swans scored at least once in all of last five meetings with the Glaziers.

Swansea City vs Crystal Palace: Prediction

Roy Hodgson’s troops started off with a scintillating display in a 0-2 victory over Fulham away at Craven Cottage, but they failed to back up such display in following two ties, falling to both Liverpool and Watford in last two rounds.

Given that the English manager will likely rest his main stars Benteke and Zaha for the weekend’s league tie with Southampton at Selhurst Park, it’s hard to imagine the visitors bagging loads past Swansea City whose defensive line looked quite solid in all but one of five league games so far.

Graham Potter’s men also struggled for goals lately which is why backing a low-scoring contest seems to be the best of the betting options. You can have the Under 2.5 goals FT bet at the odds of 1.75.

Since the hosts dominated the most recent H2H history, the value has to be in backing them to avo0id a defeat in front of the local crowd at Liberty Stadium even though the opposition comes from the top tier of the English football.

Swansea City vs Crystal Palace: Bet Tips

Under 2.5 goals FT @ 1.75

Crystal Palace Under 1.5 Team Goals @ 1.66.
