Crystal Palace v Liverpool Premier League Preview, 31st March 12.30pm
Crystal Palace need to pick up where they left off before the International Break. They collected a hugely important win over Huddersfield to boost their survival chances. However, this is such a tough game for them to get back into action with. Liverpool are firing along still pressing hard for a top-two finish. Palace can only hope to catch them cold on their return to action.
Crystal Palace v Liverpool Betting Odds*
Liverpool 2/5, Draw 7/2, Crystal Palace 13/2* (Betting Odds taken at 03:22 a.m. on March 26th, 2018)
Crystal Palace News and Form
Palace were on a poor slide of form in the Premier League before landing an important 2-0 away win at Huddersfield just before the international break. That snapped a run of seven winless fixtures that they were on, increasing their risk of relegation. They are still in the relegation mixer though starting the weekend just two points clear of the drop zone. This is a tough game for them, but it really is their last really tough fixture that they have to plough through from now to the end of the season. Palace hold a W4 D5 L6 record at home this season and they are winless in their last three at Selhurst Park, losing their last two against Spurs and Manchester United there. Palace have a W1 D2 L3 record in their last six on home soil. They are getting forward, but have been lacking a bit of finishing class in the box and their defence is no doubt going to come under some heavy pressure in his one. Both teams to score at Bet365 is at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 04:27 p.m. on March 26th, 2018).
Liverpool News and Form
The Reds are duelling with Manchester United for second place in the league and they have been in decent enough form, winning four of their last five league outings. The only game they failed to win in that sequence was a trip to Old Trafford. The Reds thumped Watford 5-0 before the international break with Mo Salah bagging four and he is the bet365 first goalscorer favourites at 5/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 04:27 p.m. on March 26th, 2018). The Reds are W8 D3 L4 on their travels this season in the top flight, going W2 L2 in their last four away from Anfield. They can, of course, be relied on for goals and have averaged 2.3 per away game which should help this game get above that 2.5 goal line pretty comfortably. The Reds have scored in each of their last seven league fixtures now and in the bet365 correct score market, a Liverpool 2-1 option isn’t a bad option really to consider for this one. There is a great chance for them to heap some pressure back onto the shoulders of Manchester United in the race for second.
Crystal Palace v Liverpool Head to Head
Over the last six Premier League meetings things are even with three wins each actually. The Reds took a 1-0 win over Palace earlier in the season at Anfield but both teams have scored in eight of the last nine league meetings. Ten of the last eleven meetings in all competitions have gone over 2. 5 goals. So it is likely that this will be an entertaining game. Palace are winless in three home games against Liverpool in all competitions.
Who will win – Crystal Palace v Liverpool Predictions
Liverpool to win and both teams to score looks to be the right option to roll with in this one. The Reds are obviously the stronger of the two and Palace will have trouble containing them. It gets much easier for Palace after this one, they just need to see it out.
