On the upcoming Thursday the final match of the 20th round in the EPL will be played, the London derby between Crystal Palace and Arsenal, in which the Gunners are considered to be the clear favorites. One may argue a bit with such action line, firstly because of a decent shape of the Eagles, after a terrible start Roy Hodgson’s team came to its senses and hasn’t been losing for a long time now, while the Red-and-Whites play great at Emirates, but have stable problems with results in away games.
Crystal Palace didn’t lose a single time within the last eight games, achieving three victories with five draws, whereas the Eagles are only two points ahead of Bournemouth, which are in the relegation zone. Crystal Palace have 18 points in the asset at the moment, the amount of points corresponds to the 16th position in the EPL tournament table. The future hosts have three victories with three draws and three defeats at their home ground, 12 goals were scored and 15 conceded.
Arsenal have great statistics at their home ground: eight victories, one draws and one loss, the goal difference is 25:10, but not everything is that bright for the Gunners away: two wins with three ties and four defeats, the goal difference is 9:13. Last round Arsenal had a match at Emirates against Liverpool, which ended in a 3:3 draw.
Crystal Palace perform decently lately, having a positive statistics in domestic matches, while Arsenal do not impress away, having only 22.2% away victories. One may try risking and making a bet on the outsider in this couple.
Prediction for the match: Crystal Palace to win with +1.25 Asian handicap
