Crystal Palace vs Tottenham Prediction & Betting tips
Some just want to go on vacation, others in the Europa League. When Crystal Palace meets Tottenham on Matchday 38 in England, the motivation of the two opponents could hardly be more different.
For Palace it has been about nothing for some time. As a look at the table in the Premier League shows, the team from London can neither deteriorate nor improve much, Palace has long had nothing to do with relegation or places in Europe.
So you bum around in the midfield of the table with little motivation, just longing for the end of the season – while Tottenham does everything in the last few meters to be represented next year in Europe.
It is therefore not surprising that the best bookmakers before the Crystal Palace vs Tottenham game speak clearly for those guests who urgently need a win. More betting tips, analyzes and previews of the exciting last day of the English Premier League can be found on the betting base in the “Football England” area.
Crystal Palace no longer seems to be able to motivate itself in the final sprint. The season has long been over for the Eagles, and in 14th place, Palace has made it mediocre comfortable. The team of coach Roy Hodgson hardly had any real ambitions to change anything in this position – at least when you look at the last results of the team.
Seven losses in a row speak a clear language, the goal difference is even clearer with these seven bankruptcies: 2:17! Palace scored only in one game at all, in the 2: 3 against Chelsea on match day 34. Since then, the results against Aston Villa, Manchester United and Wolverhampton: 0: 2, 0: 2 and 0: 2.
Now Tottenham comes to Selhurst Park, the fear opponent of the Eagles. Crystal Palace have lost the last nine games against Tottenham in the Premier League, the longest series of defeats against a top-tier opponent in the club’s history.
Even worse: In the last seven bankruptcies in the Premier League against the Spurs, Crystal Palace could not even score a goal, with all defeats zero.
No wonder that the betting odds in front of the Derby Crystal Palace against Tottenham are clearly in favor of the guests from North London.
So while Palace is one defeat after another, Tottenham is just in time for the final sprint – and in good shape. José Mourinho’s team has been unbeaten for five games, four of which have been won, most recently three important wins in a row.
In addition, only Chelsea (16) scored more points in London derbies this season than Tottenham (13) – a encouragement before the last game day.
These nine points in a row make the Spurs dream of participating in the Europa League, a messed up season could still end positively. For this to work, however, Europa League competitor Wolverhampton does not have to win the Chelsea visit, while the Spurs in turn have to score a threesome.
In short: The Mourinho team needs a better result than the Wolves – even a draw could be enough for Spurs for sixth if Wolverhampton should lose at Chelsea.
Top striker Harry Kane is also an important factor in the endeavor to make it into the Europa League. The Spurs captain has scored four goals in the last two games and is in top form just in time.
“We still have one game to play, so we’re not done yet,” the attacker said after the important 3-0 win over Leicester and put the focus on the derby against Palace – in which of course only the win counts: “It’s great to win three games in a row, but it would be a shame to miss Europe by losing the next game. We want to end the season with a win. ”
