Crystal Palace vs Leicester City 15th Apr 2017: EPL Preview and Predictions

Crystal Palace will be at home this weekend as they take on the champions from last year, Leicester City. This game will mean a lot to the Eagles since a victory will all but secure their spot in the Premier League next season so I am expecting them to put out an amazing performance.

Starting with Leicester, this game will not mean a whole lot to the Foxes as they just played last week in the Champions League and the players will want to recharge before the second leg in a quarter final tie that is still very winnable for the Premier League Champions. As a result, I think a rested team might be put forward for this game and that will mean that the best possible performance might not be expected.

Crystal Palace on the other hand will be putting in 100% and I think they will be backed by a massive Selhurst Park crowd that is behind them. This team has been in exceptional form this season and I expect that to continue as the team is not safe yet and things there is still a lot more to get out of this season.

As a result of all this, I am going to predict a Crystal Palace win. We are getting an ok price on it so it’s not the best bet but I think it can still work out to be a profitable wager. If that doesn’t fancy your gambling interests, the both teams not to score is also a good bet since I don’t think Palace will concede with the defence they have at the moment. 

Pick:
Crystal Palace
