Reason For Crystal Palace vs AFC Bournemouth Predictions

  • Since the start of last season, just 42% of Crystal Palace’s Premier League points have been won at Selhurst Park.
  • Crystal Palace have scored more than one goal in just one of their seven home league matches this season.
  • Bournemouth have conceded an average of 1.57 goals per away game this season, although this drops to 1.0 goals per game when discounting teams in the current top five.

Old problems resurface at Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace drew November to a close on Saturday as they ended a dismal five match winless streak by beating Burnley 2-0 away from home, leaving them a respectable 10th place as we head into what promises to be a blockbuster December in the Premier League.

However, after a promising start to the campaign it’s hard to ignore the fact that Crystal Palace’s old problems seem to be resurfacing as the season progresses. They have scored just five goals in their last six league matches, and once again they seem to be struggling terribly at Selhurst Park.

The Eagles finished the 2018/19 Premier League campaign with the 3rd worst home record in the top flight and were saved by an away record that was only bettered by five teams. This season they have won just 44% of their points at Selhurst Park, so Bournemouth will be feeling confident in their chances.

Defensive issues not as bad as they first appear for Bournemouth

Eddie Howe’s men aren’t in the best shape themselves though. The Cherries lost 3-2 at Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham at the weekend to make it three defeats in a row, although it’s worth noting that they had lost just one of their seven matches prior to this downturn in form.

This recent run leaves Bournemouth 12th in the table, six points clear of the drop zone and just four points adrift of the top five in what’s shaping up to be an incredibly close mid-table battle.

Bournemouth’s defence is under constant scrutiny thanks to their propensity for complete collapses at the back, but they are improving in that respect. They have only conceded 20 goals in their 14 games this season, and away from home they have conceded two or more in just three of their seven outings.

Goalscoring problems continue to haunt Selhurst Park

That statistic moves us smoothly towards our prediction for the evening. We’ve touched upon Crystal Palace’s poor home record, and the main culprit of this is their seeming inability to find the net in front of the home fans. They have scored just five goals in seven home league games this season, and looking back into last season they have averaged a meagre 0.92 goals per game there.

The Eagles have netted more than once in only one of their home games this season and in six of their 26 attempts since the beginning of last season. For this reason, backing Crystal Palace Under 1.5 Team Goals looks a good option, and with their average rate of concession being exactly one goal per game at home this season we think a 1-1 correct score prediction is the perfect accompaniment.
