AFC Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace

, KO: 19:45 Apr 2, 2024, Vitality Stadium
Crystal Palace

Bournemouth continue their push for a place in the top half as they welcome Crystal Palace to the Vitality Stadium for a midweek Premier League fixture. The Cherries have been impressive lately and should have the upper hand over Palace, who are still out of sorts.

Bournemouth are coming off a 2-1 victory over Everton in their previous Premier League fixture. The clash looked to be heading for a draw after Dominic Solanke’s opener was cancelled out by the Toffees but an injury time own-goal from Seamus Coleman earned them all three points.

The Cherries may have had to do it the hard way but the result is consistent with their recent form. Andoni Iraola’s men have claimed three wins and a draw from their last four matches and are just three points off the top 10.

Bournemouth are often solid at home and are unbeaten in eight of their last 10 matches at the Vitality Stadium. However, they are often unconvincing at the back and are without a clean sheet in the last six matches in that run.

Crystal Palace travel to the Vitality Stadium off the back of a 1-1 draw at Nottingham Forest last time out in the Premier League. Jean-Philippe Mateta opened the scoring early in the first half but they were pegged back after the break.

The result means Crystal Palace have claimed just one win under manager Oliver Glasner. The Eagles have an eight point lead above the bottom three but need to turn their fortunes around to avoid getting dragged into the relegation scrap.

One thing that has plagued Crystal Palace this season is a poor record on the road as they are winless in their last nine Premier League away matches. Some of their heaviest defeats have come on their travels like the 5-0 hammering at Arsenal and the 4-1 loss at Brighton.
