Burnley vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting tips
On Turf Moor Saturday afternoon at 15:00 the game between Burnley and Crystal Palace is on the program. Both teams lost their matches in the Premier League last week and both teams took thirty points from 28 rounds.
For Burnley the duel with Crystal Palace is incredibly important. Just like The Eagles, they still fear a bit of degradation at Burnley. The fact is that Burnley was working on a great series in recent weeks and I can not imagine The Clarets will actually get into trouble. Sean Dyche has a reasonable team and besides, the Englishman knows how to beat the whip. Last season he placed himself with Burnley for European football and with almost the same team, Burnley can not degrade. In the first months of the season, The Clarets had a hard time in the Premier League, but lately it is going well.
Only Tuesday night the result of Burnley was a bit disappointing: The Clarets went 2-0 away at Newcastle United. The eight Premier League matches had remained unbeaten The Clarets and in Newcastle Burnley was also entitled to more. This year Burnley already got more points than Liverpool and that also says something about the shape of The Clarets the last matches. A 2-0 defeat at Newcastle United can, of course, happen to every lowflyer from the Premier League, but it is now a matter for Burnley to recover against Crystal Palace.
The Crystal Palace by Roy Hodgson is on a par with the opponent on Saturday afternoon. The Eagles, like Burnley, have scored 30 points in the Premier League, but Crystal Palace’s goal difference is a lot better. Where Burnley has to do with a negative goal-score of -19, The Eagles have satisfied themselves with a goal difference of -9. The goal balance Crystal Palace basically does not like: The Eagles just do not want to relegate and it does not matter if they finish as fourteenth or seventeenth in the Premier League. Currently the team of Hodgson is fourteenth in the league and The Eagles have five points more than Cardiff City, which is the first club under the red line.
Crystal Palace was unbeaten six games until Manchester United came to London on Wednesday-evening. Hodgson lost most of his games as manager against Manchester United and that was no different on Wednesday; Crystal Palace went home 1-3 at home against The Red Devils. The only bright spot of the evening was that after 86 Premier League games, Joel Ward scored once again. The 29-year-old English defender headed in the tying-in goal with a 0-2 deficit, but Crystal Palace had to score the 1-3 of Ashley Young seven minutes before time. Normally The Eagles make it difficult for any top club at Selhurst Park, but that was certainly not the case on Wednesday.
