Crystal Palace are on the road again and on boxing day they will attempt to break down a fortress as Bournemouth will look to continue their amazing home record. This is going to be an incredible match since Crystal Palace are perhaps the best team on the road while Bournemouth are a team who rarely lose at home. In addition to that, both teams are in positions on the ladder where they need to win to remain in their respective positions and possibly move up.
Bournemouth have had an incredible run at home and they have become one of the most feared home sides in my opinion. This team has managed to beat teams such as Manchester United at home while also getting away wins against the likes of Chelsea. This side has shown that they can upset most teams and they will head into this match full of confidence since they are on a pretty long unbeaten streak.
Crystal Palace on the other hand are also going have a lot of self-belief. This team has been playing some really good football and this is shown as they are equal on points with the teams who are in 4th spot. This side has tons of potential and I think that they are genuine contenders for a spot in Europe next season so they will be looking for nothing less than a win in this match. This team will be boosted by the return of their superstar midfielder, Yohan Cabaye, and this will give then a massive boost going into this game. I like Palace’s chances in this clash since they are a side in form and their road record shows how good they are in matches like this.
Bournemouth may be in great form but Crystal Palace has built their success from games like this one so I think that the Eagles will show the other teams how it’s done by leaving with all three points. As betting goes, I think taking the Eagles on the outright market is the best bet. We are getting good enough odds here and I am pretty confident about this one coming through.
