Wolves vs Crystal Palace
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 20 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.
This game comes at a perfect juncture for the Wanderers. They are currently in possession of the final European spot, and need to hold on to that position for two more game weeks. However, they are being furiously chased by the likes of Spurs, Blades and Gunners.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men definitely need the win this Monday for these reasons. Moreover, their final league match-up is against Chelsea, and it would certainly be hard to secure points there, especially with the Blues desperate for their CL tickets.
Suffice it to say, the Wanderers are going after the three points at the Molineux Stadium. It helps that they are taking on one of the worst teams in the whole competition at present.
The Glaziers may be placed 14th in the table, and might be safe from relegation. But understand that, as per recent form, they could be termed as the worst of the whole competition.
They remain the only team along with the already-relegated Norwich, to be on a five-fixture losing run in the league at present.
Considering these factors, rightfully expect Wolves to secure a win.
Wolves vs Crystal Palace: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 1-1 draw.

- Only once have they failed to score against this opponent in PL history.
- The hosts scored two or more goals in two of the former four games at this stadium.
Wolves vs Crystal Palace: Prediction
The Wanderers secured a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, against Burnley. In the meantime, Roy Hodgson’s men lost 0-2 at home against Manchester United.
By the looks of things, Santo’s men are the overwhelming favorites. They are still in hot pursuit of their objective of qualifying for Europe – while their counterparts cannot wait for their season to come to an end, as they have nothing left to play for.
Moreover, the Wanderers were unbeaten in 12 of their last 15 overall games, and were so in 17 of their preceding 20 appearances at this venue. On the other hand, their opposite number are on a six-match losing run in overall games, and are on a losing run of three fixtures away from home.
In fact, they recorded a combined scoreline of 9-0, in the above-mentioned three-game losing stretch. Taking into account these observations, expect Wolves to deliver a win this Monday, against the struggling Glaziers.
