Both teams have serious tournament motivation, therefore the forthcoming game will probably be interesting and with lots of action. Bookmakers see the Gunners as clear favorites in the couple and it is hard to disagree with the set action line.
Crystal Palace managed to win four times with one defeat within the last five matches. The loss was registered in a match against Southampton, while the victories happened over Middlesbrough, West Bromwich, Watford and Chelsea. Crystal Palace are situated on the sixteenth position in the EPL tournament table. The Eagles have 31 points in the asset and three-point handicap over Swansea, which in their turn are situated in the relegation zone.
After a series of disastrous matches, Arsenal had two good games, having a draw with Manchester City at first and later winning against West Bromwich with a score of 3:0. Prior to the upcoming round, the Gunners have 54 points in the asset, are situated on the fifth position and falling behind the fourth place and the Champions League spot by four points. Arsenal have had 14 away matches within the EPL this season in which they got six wins with three draws and five defeats.
For Arsenal to rise to the Champions League zone, the Gunners must not lose any points in the upcoming rounds, including the away match against Crystal Palace. The Gunners can play pretty well outside their native walls and the current situation forces Arsen Wenger’s team to play only for the win.
Prediction for the match: Arsenal to win.
