Leicester vs Crystal Palace – Premier League: Coming off 2 incredible wins away from home
Where they defeated Newcastle (3-2) and Southampton (4-1), Leicester is coming off 4 consecutive wins in the Premier League and giving indications that they finally geared up in the competition and should cause their opponents a lot of troubles,.
Especially at home where they are really strong and have won 3 of their last 4 matches, against good level opponents such as Everton, Burnley and Tottenham, with the other result being precisely against the unbeaten Manchester City.
It is true that the team is still playing without the talented Adrien Silva, but it is also true that the team hasn’t felt his absence that much, maintaining their good level.
Crystal Palace: After an awful start to their campaign, Crystal Palace was able to string together 6 straight unbeaten matches and left the awkward 20th position.
However, they are still on the relegation zone, and are coming off a very tough comeback at home against Watford, who were winning until the 85th minute, when they got a player sent off and proceeded to concede 2 goals.
And even with the team’s clear improvement, most of those matches were played at home, because they haven’t shown much away from home, where they are still looking to get their first win, having 2 draws and 6 losses in that condition.
For this match, Palace shouldn’t be able to count with Sakho, Milivojevic and Delaney, besides Joel Ward, who is still doubtful.
Leicester vs Crystal Palace – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Without ignoring Crystal Palace’s recent ascension, I consider them a team that started to play reasonable football on the past few weeks,.
And they are yet to be able to convert that into wins, although we don’t know what will happen against a Leicester who is more well-built and solid in the league, that plays consistent football for some time and is coming off 4 consecutive and deserved wins.
The home advantage in this match is also very relevant, since Crystal Palace has a terrible record away from home and Leicester is a well-known and respected team, playing at a high level as hosts.
