Crystal Palace vs Burnley
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 13 February 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Selhurst Park.
The Glaziers have conceded the second-most number of goals of all the teams in the competition. They have been struggling all through this campaign to show some level of consistency, and to place themselves in the mid-table.
But despite the season entering its second half, the team still has not found their groove.
As of now, their objective must be to avoid getting the boot, and for that to happen, they need to make sure that they do not waste home games like this upcoming one, against relegation-battlers.
The Clarets were one of the most impressive teams in the English top flight the last season. They were even in the running to qualify for Europe at one point.
However, they have been in complete shambles this time around. Their usually sturdy defense has not been in form, and despite their best of efforts, the team has not been able to climb above the 15th spot.
On top of that, they have also been struggling on the road for quite some time, and as a result of all these factors, the team has invited some unwanted pressure on to themselves.
Moreover, majority of h2h clashes over the years have also had goals in huge numbers over the years.
As such, expect a goal-fest this Saturday at the Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace vs Burnley: Head-to-head (h2h)

- Sean Dyche’s men have conceded two or more goals in three of the past five overall match-ups.

Crystal Palace vs Burnley Prediction
Roy Hodgson’s men lost 2-0 on the road the last match-day, against Leeds. In the meantime, the Clarets were held to a 1-1 draw the past game at home, by Brighton.
Going on, the Glaziers were winless in 11 of their last 13 overall matches, and they had conceded two or more goals in three of their former five fixtures. Note that they have also kept a total of just two clean sheets at home in their last ten appearances.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a four-match winless run, and they had also conceded two or more goals in three of their former four games. They were also winless in ten of their preceding fourteen road trips.
Finally, these two teams have conceded goals in high numbers in previous h2h clashes over the years as well.
Likely, expect a high-scoring affair this weekend, between these two under-pressure teams.
