Crystal Palace vs Watford Prediction & Betting tips
In London, Crystal Palace receives a visit from Watford this weekend. Both clubs won their competition duel last weekend and therefore have the necessary confidence in the game at Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace is currently the number twelve in the Premier League. Roy Hodgson cannot be dissatisfied with that. The 72-year-old Hodgson has been given the objective that he must maintain himself with Crystal Palace in the Premier League and that objective seems to have been achieved. The Eagles have nine points ahead of the relegation line and with ten games to go in the Premier League it must be going really bad if Crystal Palace is actually in danger of relegation.
The South Londoners won their last two league matches and have therefore taken a nice blow with the relegation zone. Two weeks ago, Hodgson’s team at Selhurst Park was 1-0 too strong for Newcastle United. Last weekend, Crystal Palace won exactly the same numbers from Brighton at the American Express Community Stadium. While visiting Brighton, Jordan Ayew scored the decisive goal, while Patrick van Aanholt was responsible for the three points Crystal Palace took against Newcastle United.
The supporters of Watford are currently much more concerned than the supporters of Crystal Palace. Watford is seventeenth in the Premier League and The Hornets are only based on the goal difference above the relegation line. AFC Bournemouth is under the relegation line and has a goal balance of -17, while Watford’s goal balance with -16 is slightly better. In any case, the fact remains that this Watford still has to fear for relegation and this is unlikely to change in the last months of this season.
Watford booked the most unexpected win of the current Premier League season last weekend. Liverpool was a guest at Vicarage Road last Saturday night and Watford won 3-0 against The Reds. The people who put their money on a 3-0 win from Watford over Liverpool will probably never have to work again. It is now up to manager Nigel Pearson to ensure that his players keep their feet firmly on the ground, because if Watford only loses in the coming weeks, then that 3-0 win over Liverpool is also worthless.
