Swansea vs Crystal Palace – Premier League: In one of this Saturday’s matches, in England
Counting towards the Premier League’s 19th round the local side Swansea, managed by Leon Britton, as an interim coach, and the visiting side Crystal Palace, managed by Roy Hodgson, face off in the city of Swansea, at the Liberty Stadium.
The local side comes into this encounter in 20th place, with 12 points, while the visitors come into this match in 14th place, with 17 points.
This will be the second meeting between the two teams this season, after the Welsh’s triumph in London 2-0 on the 1st round.
The home side comes into this match making a season well below the expectations, not following up on what they were able to produce last season, after the arrival of Paul Clement to lead the hosts as manager, with the impact of that managerial change vanishing as time went by (what happened to Clement happens to a lot of managers, it’s natural).
The team is, this way, in last place of the competition, but they have everything to save themselves, since they are only 4 points away from “safety”.
As for the London team, they come into this encounter on a good streak of results, especially if we compare it to the early stages of the season.
Where the team was winless for several rounds and suddenly, with Hodgson’s arrival, things improved substantially, and the team has already left the relegation zone. The team is, this way, coming off a good streak of results, not losing since more than a month and a half ago.
Swansea vs Crystal Palace – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Due to the managerial change on Swansea, that can have an impact, depending on several aspects, and the fact that Crystal Palace is on a good moment of form.
Those two conditions can sort of nullify each other, per say, leading me into believing we’ll have a balanced and low-scoring affair.
