Crystal Palace vs Brentford

, KO: 15:00 Dec 30, 2023, Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace and Burnley Square off in a Premier League fixture on Saturday with both teams looking to snap out of rough spells. Neither side has been anywhere close to their best lately and in their desire to avoid defeat, may cancel each other out for a draw.

Crystal Palace head into Saturday’s clash off the back of a 2-1 defeat to Chelsea in their previous Premier League fixture. They were level at the break following Michael Olise’s equaliser on the stroke of halftime but failed to hold out for a point.

The result means Crystal Palace are now winless in their last eight matches, although they had played out two straight draws prior to the trip to Stamford Bridge. Roy Hodgson’s men have been on a steady decline down the table and are now just three points above the relegation zone.

There have also been very little home comforts for Crystal Palace in recent weeks as they are winless in their last seven matches at Selhurst Park. They have played out three draws in that run, including a 1-1 scoreline with Brighton in their previous fixture in front of their fans.

Brentford have been on a similar downward spiral and have lost their last four Premier League matches. They are only one point above Crystal Palace and like their hosts will be keen to avoid getting dragged into the relegation scrap.

The Bees were particularly disappointing last time out as they were beaten 4-1 at home by Wolverhampton Wanderers. They were no match for Wolves with Yoane Wissa’s first half effort proving to be a mere consolation.

Things have also been rough for Brentford on their travels as they have picked up just one win from their last seven away matches. Thomas Frank’s men are currently on a three match losing run on the road and were beaten 1-0 by struggling Sheffield United in their previous fixture away from home.

How the bookies view it

Crystal Palace have the upper hand among the bookies and are priced at 13/10 by bet365 to claim the win. A victory for Brentford is valued at 9/4 by Paddy Power while bet365 is offering odds of 12/5 for a draw.

Recent head to head

There has been nothing to separate Crystal Palace and Brentford in recent times with the last five meetings ending in stalemates. Both teams battled to a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in August.

Players to watch

Although Crystal Palace are not playing at their best, Michael Olise has caught the eye in recent weeks. The forward has found the net in the last two matches and is priced at 22/5 by Unibet to maintain his scoring run.

Given their depleted numbers in attack, Brentford will be looking to Yoane Wissa to go on a scoring run. The forward was on target in the defeat to Wolves and is priced at 7/2 by bet365 to find the net once again.

Anything else catch the eye?

There have been goals for both teams in their last three meetings and a repeat is priced at 10/11 with bet365. There were over 3.5 goals in Brentford’s previous fixture and a similar outcome is valued at 3/1 with Paddy Power quite 888Sport is offering odds of 6/5 for over 2.5 goals.

Both teams have been level at the break four of their last five meetings, so a halftime draw could be considered at 23/20 with 888Sport.
