The Wolves and Crystal Palace face off on Friday in an English Premier League showdown at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton, West Midlands, England.
The Wolves have high expectations for how this season will go and coming into this game they sit in 9th place in the standings. The Wolves are a defense-first team and when they have success it’s usually because the defense locks down. Each of the last three games the Wolves have scored only one goal and that has led to them winning two of the games and playing to a draw in the other. In the last game against Newcastle, the Wolves had 64 percent of the possession but they only had three shots on goal. Even though they played well they gave up a goal in the 89th minute and that led to a draw. Raul Jimenez was the goal scorer in that game, and in this game it’s going to be about the defense locking down.
On the other side of this matchup is Crystal Palace who currently sit in 8th place in the standings but they also have 10 points, just like the Wolves. In the last game against Fulham, Crystal Palace looked really good taking a 2-0 lead and even though they gave up a goal late they still won 2-1. Wilfried Zaha has been the best player this season for Crystal Palace and he was able to score one of the goals in the last game. In the last game Crystal Palace only had 35 percent of the possession and in this game, Crystal Palace needs to find a way to get the possession going. In this game, Crystal Palace needs to find a way to get the offense going early and attack a defense that has been strong.
Crystal Palace’s lack of possession is a problem and I think that is going to let them down in this game. Look for Crystal Palace to have issues against a very good Wolves defense and the Wolves are going to find a way to win this game on the money line.
