West Brom vs Crystal Palace
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-off at 12:00 UK/ 13:00 CET
Venue: The Hawthorns.
The Baggies are one of the worst teams in the competition at the moment, and are placed 18th in a table of 20. They were promoted to the top flight just at the end of the last season, and so far they have shown a total inability to adapt to their new surroundings.
They were 100% winless in the league till the last match-day, when they had the opportunity to take on the dead-last placed Sheffield United.
Going on, only the two bottom-most teams have scored fewer goals than them, and only the recently-promoted Fulham have conceded more.
Meanwhile, the Glaziers are an experienced contender. They are struggling at the moment to break into the top-10, and this fixture against one of the weakest teams in the league is a huge opportunity for them.
Moreover, Roy Hodgson’s men also have a great h2h record against them over the years.
Likely, expect a dominating performance from Crystal Palace this Sunday.
West Brom vs Crystal Palace: Head-to-head (h2h)

West Brom vs Crystal Palace: Prediction
Slaven Bilic’s men recorded a 1-0 win at home the last match-day, against Sheffield United. In the meantime, Hodgson’s men lost 0-2 at home the past game week, against Newcastle.
Going on, the Glaziers were unbeaten in 11 of their preceding 16 overall matches, and they remained so in four of their former seven road trips.
On the other hand, their counterparts are newcomers to the competition, and were winless in 15 of their past 17 games.
At home, they had a total of six wins all through 2020, and five of these had come against teams in the Championship, while the remaining one came against the 20th placed team in the PL.
In addition, Hodgson’s men had recorded wins in four of the last five h2h meetings, and they had recorded seven of the past ten overall such victories as well.
For the reasons, expect Crystal Palace to have the upper hand this Sunday at the Hawthorns.
