Bournemouth – Crystal Palace, Premier League Prediction
ANALYSIS AND PREDICTION FOR BOURNEMOUTH - CRYSTAL PALACE
Bournemouth lost disastrously from Burnley as a guest with 0-4 last round and during the whole week it was clear in the players’ statements that they were very disappointed and even angry with this loss. Eddie Howe changed the mind of this club and cherries hardly accept such defeats. They have ambitions to enter even the top 10 this season. Now they play at home and it’s time for revenge, because as host they perform very good in the Premier league. They have lost only 3 times in their last 15 home games and it was against teams like Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester United. Their attack also works well and they rarely miss to score a goal. Cherries play attacking and brave at their stadium. However, they have only recorded 7 clean sheets in the last 36 home games in the league. They are the team with the least clean sheets ever since joining the elite comparing to the rest here.
Crystal Palace play good football and the eagles do not fit this 13th place they are at the moment. They did not beat the last round again and made 0-0 with Newcastle at home, dropping a bunch of chances, some of which were very big. Crystal Palace are very rely much on Wilfred Zaha, who is also their top scorer. Eagles have scored 13 times in the last 14 league games and have only one loss in the last 7. The Eagles have heavy matches with Everton on Goodison, then with Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Man United in the next few rounds as previously playing this match with Bournemouth and hosting Wolves. This means that they will be extremely mobilized to accumulate points now, because then with the top teams will be quite difficult.
Bournemouth has no victory over Crystal Palace at home in an official match. Crystal Palace also did not defeat the cherries at home in the history and there is a tendency for visiting teams to take precedence between these two. Both teams play well and will try to get points. Bournemouth have very sharp attack and Palace is able to take advantage of the counter, as well as set pieces. We look forward to an interesting and dynamic match. Here our prediction is BTTS at 1.68.
