On Saturday, August 21, in the 2nd round of the English Premier League, Crystal Palace will host Brentford at their “Selhurst Park” arena in London. The game will start at 15:00 Moscow time.
Knowing how the teams played in the first round, we are ready to make a prediction for the Crystal Palace vs Brentford match. We hope that this prediction will help you to place a winning bet.
This team from the capital of England started the new season in the Premier League Championship with a setback. In the first round, Patrick Vieira’s charges had to confront London’s Chelsea. However, we did not see a real struggle. The outcome of the first capital derby of the season was 3-0 in favor of the European club champion. Crystal Palace was unable to oppose anything to the “aristocrats” who played in this match powerfully and purposefully.
On the other hand, by achieving a brilliant result, the Premier League newcomers showed good football in their first game as an elite division team. Most importantly, we saw the character of the team. Despite the formidable status of the opponent (everyone expected Arsenal to win this game), the hosts beat the guests in all respects. Brentford’s victory with a score of 2-0 significantly raised their chances in the Championship.
The upcoming game between Crystal Palace and Brentford (in London) will be the 10th in the head-to-head history of both teams. So far, there is a double advantage in the number of victories on the side of the capital team. Crystal Palace has 4 victories, while Brentford has only two successful matches. Draws were recorded three times.
The upcoming game might end in a surprise. Naturally, the team from the capital is more experienced and has more potential. The guests are eager to prove that their victory in the first round was not accidental. Nevertheless, our prediction for the Crystal Palace vs Brentford match is leaning towards the version that the victory will be on the side of the owners of the field.
Probable result – the victory of Crystal Palace.
