Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting tips
Last season, Bournemouth and Crystal Palace played together in the Premier League. Now they meet again just two months after the Cherries were relegated from the House of Lords of English football in the EFL Cup. After the sale of some top performers, the men from England’s south-west are now going into the match with the Londoners under a new coach as outsiders.
The bookmakers see it that way, as the odds comparison of the betting base shows. In the run-up to the game between Bournemouth and Crystal Palace, the odds of the bookies finally hit the guests.
At Bournemouth against Crystal Palace, the prognosis must also take into account that the Londoners have won the last three duels with the Cherries and were only able to celebrate a 2-0 away win at Dean Court on June 20, 2020. The Premier League relegated team, who won the championship 3-2 at the beginning of the weekend, is certainly not without a chance.
In the summer of 2015, AFC Bournemouth rose to the Premier League for the first time in the club’s history. Five years later the adventure ended for the Cherries, who at the end were missing a single point to stay in the league. As 18th it went back to the championship.
A decline that of course also went hand in hand with restructuring. Some players who did not have a contract for the championship were let go for financial reasons. Top performers like Nathan Aké, Callum Wilson and Aaron Ramsdale were sold for the equivalent of almost 90 million euros.
Money that has not yet been reinvested at the club from the south west coast of England, also known as Boscombe. Not a single real new addition is compared to the no less than 13 departures. Only three players on loan returned, while Will Dennis was pulled up from his own U21 to the senior team.
Against this background, it can be clearly stated that there is still an urgent need for action on the transfer market for the Cherries, especially since top performers like Lewis Cook are still associated with various top division clubs.
Despite the many construction sites in the squad planning, the thinned squad from new coach Jason Tindall not only succeeded in the test game phase, in which a respectable 5: 3 away win at West Ham, among others, but also the league opener in the championship.
Boscombe beat Blackburn Rovers 3-2 and showed an attractive offensive football in this match, which, however, resulted in constant gaps in their own defense. At Bournemouth against Crystal Palace this also favors the tip “Both teams score: Yes” very strongly.
Since the 2013/14 season, the London football club Crystal Palace has been an integral part of the Premier League and has rarely had anything to do with the relegation battle in all these years, although in the final table there was always only one position between tenth and 15th.
Also this summer the Glaziers landed on a solid 14th place and with nine points ahead of Bournemouth had no reason to worry about relegation at any time.
Only the leap into the top half of the table simply did not want Roy Hodgson’s squad to succeed in the long term, although the start was so promising. After the tenth game day, Crystal Palace was still in sixth place. The Eagles finished the first half of the season in ninth place.
So it’s no wonder that readjustments were made on the transfer market. A promising striker was loaned from Chelsea in Michy Batshuayi, while Queens Park Rangers’ Eberechi Eze and West Brom’s Nathan Ferguson were two highly sought-after talents.
In terms of personnel, the squad, in which there was only one exit – Ryan Inniss received no new working paper – has improved once again. The league opener, in which the Glaziers beat Southampton 1-0 at home on Saturday, raised further hopes. Also because of this result, the odds of the bookmakers finally turn towards the Londoners at Bournemouth against Crystal Palace.
Now it is time to step up in the EFL Cup and secure the appropriate self-confidence for the difficult tasks that lie ahead of the Eagles. In the Premier League, with Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea, three really big chunks are waiting for the Glaziers.
