Crystal Palace vs Chelsea prediction and betting tips on February 12, 2024
In England, a considerable part of the current round of the local Premier League will be played on Saturday. At the same time, the final schedule will be closed only on Monday, when local clubs, Crystal Palace and Chelsea, will play against each other in London. Which one of them will achieve victory? The analysts of the website have made a prediction for this match on February 12, 2024.
Crystal Palace continues to move above the danger zone
“The Glaziers” remain true to their philosophy – the team is still Hodgson’s one. There is nothing to expect from it, and one can understand Wilfried Zaha, who did not expect to be sold to one of the giants, but fled to Galatasaray in the summer immediately after the expiration of his contract. It became even more difficult to play without him, and there were many defeats – it’s not for nothing that “Old Roy” is considered to be one of the main “favourites” for retirement. At the same time, his wards manage to win periodically and stay above the “point per round” mark. For instance, the team won a shoot-out in the battle against Sheffield United in January. Then, however, it, without any options, lost with a 4-1 score to Brighton.
Chelsea fails, but there is a caveat
“The Aristocrats” managed to fail in the previous season. The recent Champions League winner finished only in 12th position in the final standings. It’s just that now, having lost with a 2-4 score in the home struggle with Wolverhampton, which took place in the previous round, “the Blues” fell outside the top 10 again. It is obvious that it will not be possible to return to the top 4, but it is difficult to finish even in the European tournament zone. And the only justification is the success in other competition. Having overcome Middlesbrough in the return match, the giants from London made it to the League Cup final. This week, Mudryk and the company travelled to Birmingham for the cup replay with Aston Villa. They managed to win there in a quite confident way – 3-1.
Previous head-to-head matches
“The Blues” won all 13 of their previous head-to-head matches against their neighbours. They also succeeded with a 2-1 score in December.
