Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth is an interesting fixture as Bournemouth have really progressed in recent weeks and look extremely dangerous. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

This is a tough fixture because of the forms of the two sides. It is a fact that the majority of the games between the two teams have had low scorelines and we often see very close performances. However, the teams are quite different right now and we expect a different kind of match. Crystal Palace have a single win in the last five matches and they concede a lot of goals. While Bournemouth are one of the weakest teams in the league, they have not lost in three in a row and they scored seven goals, and even beat Newcastle.

Match Result Prediction: Draw

Betting on the outcome in this fixture is a huge gamble and our best recommendation is to skip this market. Nevertheless, if you want the good odds, we think that the match will be a draw. Crystal Palace have been playing terribly recently and the only positive fact is that they score goals in every single match. On the other end, Bournemouth have a single defeat in the last five PL matches and three wins too. They have improved a lot but mostly play well at home. We do not think that they can beat Palace on the road. Moreover, Crystal Palace have a brilliant record against this opponent.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

Based on the history between the two teams, we think that we can expect an under here and a closely competitive fixture overall. Both sides have mostly had overs in recent weeks, yes, but we do not see it happening here. When we compare the Crystal Palace vs Bournemouth line ups, we think that the teams are more or less equal in strength right now. Palace probably have the better squad but their form is worse than that of their opponents ahead of this fixture.

Crystal Palace's Predicted Line-up vs Bournemouth

Crystal Palace have not done well recently but we do not think that their injury problems are that significant. Compared to most teams and their current opponents, they have not had almost any issues. Five players are out for this match – Doucoure, Eze, Henderson, Holding, and Rak-Sakyi. The biggest problems are in the midfield as Eze and Doucoure played in most of Palace's games this season. Here is our predicted line-up:

Johnstone – Joachim, Guehi, Mitchell, Ward – Lerma, Schlupp, Ahamada, Hughes – Ayew, Edouard

Bournemouth's Predicted Line-up vs Crystal Palace

As mentioned above, Bournemouth have not had it pretty with their injuries this season but surprisingly, the team is currently having its best period since the start. Nevertheless, seven players have been listed as missing ahead of this fixture. Most notably, two of their best defenders will be out again – Maximillian Aarons and LLoyd Kelly. Here is our predicted line-up in a 4-2-3-1 formation, which is Iraola's favorite:

Neto – Senesi, Kerkez, Zabarnyi, Smith – Cook, Christie, Tavernier, Kluivert, Semenyo – Solanke
