Crystal Palace and the Wolves face off on Tuesday in an English Premier League showdown at Selhurst Park Stadium. When these two teams faced off on March 5th it was Crystal Palace that secured the 2-0 victory.
Crystal Palace currently sits in 13th place in the standings, having picked up 10 points. Over the last two games, Crystal Palace has picked up four points total. In the last game against Leicester City, the defense was good, giving up zero goals, but the offense only managed one shot on goal and zero goals. Crystal Palace is super banged up heading into this game, and they will be without Chris Richards, Jack Butland, James McArthur, Nathaniel Clyne, and Nathan Ferguson. Will Hughes is also dealing with an illness, and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game.
The Wolves come into this game sitting in 17th place in the standings, having picked up nine points. The Wolves haven’t been great this season, but they are coming off a win in their last game against Nottingham Forest. Ruben Neves scored a goal on a penalty kick in the 56th minute. The Wolves had 58 percent of the possession and two shots on target. The Wolves are a defense-first team, and they are going to need some strong defense in this game. Nathan Collins was suspended for the last three games, but it’s expected that he will be back in this game.
The Wolves are not a good offensive team, but they are a wonderful defensive team, and that’s what will play out here. Both teams are going to struggle to find quality scoring chances, and this game is going to be a low scoring affair. It wouldn’t shock me if this game ended 0-0, but I don’t expect more than one goal to be scored. Back the under 1.5 goals to cash.
