Crystal Palace and Norwich City face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown on Tuesday at Selhurst Park Stadium. When these two teams faced off in January of 2020 the two teams played to a 1-1 draw. 

Crystal Palace currently sits in 12th place in the standings having picked up 20 points. Crystal Palace has picked up four points over their last two games but in their last game against Tottenham, they really struggled. The defense really struggled allowing six shots on target and three of those went into the back of the net. Wilfried Zaha also picked up a red card in the 37th minute which means he won’t be available for this game. Crystal Palace has scored 24 goals total while their defense has given up 27 goals total. Conor Gallagher has been top player scoring six goals and adding three assists. Zaha has also scored five goals and not having him is going to be a big loss for this team. 

On the other side of this matchup is Norwich City who sits in 20th place in the standings having picked up 10 points. Norwich City needs to start picking up wins or their next season might not be spent in the Premier League. On Sunday, Norwich City faced off with Arsenal and the defense really struggled giving up five goals and that led to the defeat. Each of the last four games, Norwich City has failed to find the back of the net. They have only scored eight goals total while their defense has given up 39 goals. Teemu Pukki has been the top player for Norwich City scoring five goals. There are no other players that have scored more than one goal. 

Norwich City’s offense has been an issue, but I expect their defense is going to be strong, and that is going to lead to this game being lower scoring. Look for both offenses to struggle to get solid scoring chances and this game is going to be lower scoring. Back the under to cash in this game.
