Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips
It’s a potentially season-defining game for Dean Smith.
Aston Villa are 19th, four points from safety at the time of writing. Crystal Palace are safely in midtable on 42 points.
Crystal Palace have had a solid season and are in midtable going into this weekend’s fixtures. They’re not going to get into Europe but are well clear of the drop zone so it’s been a good season. With nothing to play for, this could fall into Aston Villa’s hands so our correct score prediction is for a 1-0 Villa win.
Neither side are in any sort of form and Crystal Palace have nothing to play for. This is a golden opportunity for Aston Villa to give themselves a fighting chance.
Even so, Aston Villa will need to inflict Palace’s first loss to a side beneath them in the table.
Aston Villa Form
It’s been a disheartening restart for Aston Villa. The Midlands side have picked up two points against Sheffield United and Newcastle but have also extended their winless run to ten with three consecutive losses.
With Arsenal and Everton still to come, the pressure is on Villa to pick up some much-needed points against an out-of-form Crystal Palace side.
Villa’s defence has been poor all season, conceding a league-high 65 goals in 34 games.
Defenders Matt Targett and Bjorn Engels are expected to miss out.
Crystal Palace Form
Palace steered clear of danger with a string of four consecutive wins but hav since lost four on the bounce post-restart. The Eagles have conceded 11 in their last four but have faced three of the top four.
Roy Hodgson’s side have conceded 43 goals in 34 league games, placing them eighth in the goals against table. They have kept a fairly impressive 10 clean sheets so far this season but have managed just one since the restart.
Palace have scored just 30 goals, the second-worst at the time of writing, only behind Norwich.
Martin Kelly, Jeffrey Schlupp, James Tomkins, and Gary Cahill are all major doubts.
Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace Head to Head
