Burnley vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting tips
Burnley against Crystal Palace, a real degradation craker so early in the season. Especially for the Crystal Palace of Frank de Boer a game to be won.
Burnley is ranked 10th in the Premier League after three matches. The counter sticks on four points and that is for a team like Burnley a more than excellent start of the season. It is striking that the team managed to grab all these points on a strange ground, while last year did not take much points in competitions and his retention was due to the points achieved in home matches.
Chris Wood, Burnley’s millionth acquisition, immediately proved his value against Tottenham Hotspur. New Zealand took the 1-1 after 92 minutes, giving Burnley an unexpected point. Burnley was, of course, the underlying party and was lucky that Tottenham and, in particular, Harry Kane did not hold the visor, but Burnley was still keen on what was worth and never gave up. As we see in soccer so often, that ended up with a point and, from that point of view, it was a deserved point.
The New Zealander can once again play a major role in Burnley. At home against Crystal Palace is a game of size. Palace has begun very badly and is a direct candidate of Burnley in the fight against degradation. By winning Palace, Burnley can take a long distance on the degradation zone. Of course, that does not provide any guarantee, but: a good start is half the work.
Frank de Boer is in trouble. He does not make a good start at The Eagles and is already on the lap after the Londoners after three matches. At one point even rumors went on that the Boer would not survive the interland period, but he is still in control. However, it will have to be better soon and a defeat at Burnley might mean his congé.
So the season has not really started successfully for Frank de Boer and it will soon be much better, because the really big opponents must still come. Two weeks ago, Swansea was the opponent at Selhurst Park, and Crystal Palace did not really get any advice with the visitors. Palace was not the lesser party, but did not make an impression and, on the basis of two moments of inattention, Swansea could take away. Because Palace could not really bring anything, it stayed at 0-2.
The criticism of the Dutch practice coach is that he wants to play ‘football’ and an ‘match game’ too much, while the selection is not appropriate. The Boer should actually play more strength football with his team, but the question is whether he is flexible enough for him. With Mamadou Sakho in any case, he has an important spell in the possible new tactics, but he will immediately be under pressure.
