Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa


Riding high on their recent form, Crystal Palace will look to end their season on a high as they come up against a faltering Aston Villa side. This last match of the current Premier League season at Selhurst Park in London will be played in the early morning hours of Monday, AEST local time.

Palace have improved in recent weeks and are angling for a top-half finish. Villa’s recent form has been poor, and that could work against them on this trip. I am backing the Eagles to win this match.

  • Crystal Palace have won 5 of their last 6 matches (Premier League)
  • Crystal Palace have won their last 3 home matches (Premier League)
  • Aston Villa have lost 3 of their last 4 matches (All Competitions)
  • Aston Villa have lost their last 2 away matches (All Competitions)
  • Aston Villa have lost 2 of their last 3 away matches (Premier League)

Head to Head


There have been 52 matches between Palace and Villa so far, with Palace winning 14, Villa winning 23, and the remaining 15 ending in a draw.

When the sides met earlier in the season, Villa posted a dramatic 3-1 win. Odsonne Edouard gave Palace the lead, but three goals beyond the 85th minute saw the match turn topsy-turvy.

Crystal Palace Form


Crystal Palace starts the final weekend in 12th place with 46 points. They could, with a bit of help from other teams, finish tenth. On current form, that is not out of reach, as they won five of their last six matches, drawing the other.

The Eagles defeated the Wolves 3-1 in their last league match, and they look set for a winning end to the season.

Playing at this venue has given equally impressive results, as Palace have won their last three home league games. That included a 2-0 win over Newcastle and a 4-0 win over Manchester United.

Crystal Palace Team News


As many as seven players are likely to be out of contention for Palace here. Cheick Doucoure, Sam Johnstone, and Jefferson Lerma are some of the players who are set to miss this match.

Aston Villa Form


Aston Villa are fourth in the Premier League standings with 68 points. They are confirmed to have a top-four finish, thereby qualifying for the Champions League next season.

The visitors are coming off a thrilling 3-3 draw with Liverpool, where they scored twice in the last five minutes of regular time to salvage a point. That result, though, extended their winless run to three league games.

Away from home, they have lost two and drawn one of their last four away league games, winning just once.

Aston Villa Team News


The visitors also have a number of injury concerns in their camp, with Youri Tielemans having joined the likes of Matty Cash, Morgan Rogers, and Boubacar Kamara on the sidelines.

Verdict

Aston Villa’s recent form has been worrisome, although they have already qualified for the Champions League next season. That could be one of the reasons why their recent form has been uninspiring. Palace could take complete advantage of that and post a win.
