Tottenham vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting tips
The long wait ends! On Wednesday evening the new stadium of the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club will finally be inaugurated. Since 2015, the new jewelry box was in the northeast of London under construction, so this should actually be completed on time for the start of the season 2018/2019. Due to some disagreements, however, the official opening was postponed again and again, which is why the joy of those responsible, the players and of course the fans is now unbroken. More than 60,000 spectators can be found in the new arena, which was largely built on the surface of the demolished old White Hart Lange. Under the football hybrid turf field is an artificial turf with football field, which was specially designed for the upcoming London Games in the NFL. Also of interest – at least for many English fans – it may be that the arena has its own brewery, which will also attract with the longest bar in the country (87 meters) certainly one or the other drinking British.
For all the bliss of returning to their own stadium, there is of course a lot at stake in the catch-up game of the 31st matchday. After the last-minute defeat at the weekend in Liverpool (1: 2), the team of coach Pochettino namely lost the third place in the Premier League. The race for the last two Champions League ranks is extremely narrow and slips therefore virtually forbidden. Because the Spurs want to fight back in the capital derby and are expected to be fully concentrated to work, between Tottenham and Crystal Palace, the distribution of quotas is understandable. It is due to the starting position and the qualities of both teams also can not be ruled out that the paying guests in the new football temple in London will get some goals.
The word ‘crisis of form’ is currently being used in an inflationary fashion in the fast-paced world of football. Already with two or three consecutive winless matches, the media provide provocative headlines for unrest within a club. One club that is hard to disbalance is the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club, which not only has been smart for years, but also focuses primarily on its own talent, rather than senselessly stealing the money for overpriced “mercenaries”. The one or the other fan may not always fit in the opposite of the other top teams completely opposing philosophy and yet the success of the traditional club from the northeast of London right. These in terms of the commercial football almost cheesy romantic lines do not deceive currently, however, that Harry Kane and Co. in the highest English league have problems with. From the past five Premier League encounters, the Spurs took only a single point. It hailed among other defeats against Southampton, Burnley or Chelsea, which have destroyed the originally brilliant starting position in the fight for one of the first four places.
Last Sunday’s Toby Alderweireld’s 1-1 defeat at Liverpool, with an own-goal defeat in the second half of the season, put the Pochettino team behind in fourth behind Arsenal. Manchester United in fifth is tied and also Chelsea FC in sixth only one point behind the Champions League quarter-finalists, it will get to do next week in the premier class – also in the new stadium – with Manchester City. Consequently, the upcoming meeting against the city rivals is of enormous importance; The prospects for a home win, however, also pretty good, which coincides between Tottenham and Crystal Palace with the popular forecast of many so-called experts. Although a look at the home record due to the circumstances in the new stadium may not be statistically meaningful, it should be noted that the four defeats in front of home backdrop in the current season, all against teams from the top seven were collected. On the other hand, there were only victories against clubs from the lower half of the table, often with at least two goals difference or more than two goals scored. This balance sheet is certainly one of the main reasons why Tottenham voted against the unconditional support of the fans in the new stadium. Crystal Palace is not only worth a prediction on the home win, but probably also the recommendation to bet on more than 2.5 goals.
Eric Dier and Harry Winks are injured due to injury. Compared to the defeat at Anfield, the Argentine coach may make one or the other change. Hyeung-Min Son is also about to return to the starting eleven as Ben Davies. The hopes in the offensive, however, rest primarily on Harry Kane, who has scored 59 home-goals for the Spurs and is thus in this category so only behind Jermain Defoe (60). Can the national player break the record on Wednesday?
Crystal Palace can actually agree with the latest achievements and results. Thanks to four wins from the last seven matches (one draw, two defeats), the “Eagles” have freed themselves somewhat from the vulnerable zone and can now look with confidence on the final matches in the Premier League. Considering the fact that the London are 13 points ahead of the first relegation place in 13th and with Fulham and Huddersfield two teams are already hopelessly lagging behind, it would have to go with the proverbial devil, should the capital club still be drawn into the descent sump. Admittedly, the quality within the team is so high that it should rather be assumed that the team of the experienced coach Roy Hodgson in the coming weeks continues to earn points diligently and possibly make one or the other of favorites before problems.
Especially in foreign countries Palace is currently not a welcome guest. The last two away games in the Premier League in Burnley (3: 1) and in Leicester (4: 1) were made in an impressive manner victorious. Should Tottenham be another success for Crystal Palace, odds of 7.50 in the top are welcome. In addition, Wilfried Zaha and Co. for the first time since August 2015, three guest appearances in the top English league win. In the away table, the “Eagles” also ranked in a respectable seventh place. Particularly noteworthy is the yield of goals and conceded, because actually met only Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal on opposing seats more often than Crystal Palace. On the other hand, 24 goals in just 15 games but also an indication that it could be offered on Wednesday evening, between Tottenham and Crystal Palace tip on at least three goals. With the exception of defense stag Mamadou Sakho all men are ready for action. However, there will be no great changes in the starting eleven, as the captains won 2-0 at the weekend against the established Huddersfield defender.
