Crystal Palace v AFC Bournemouth Match Preview & Best Odds

Kick-off: 7.30pm on Wednesday 6th December 2023

 

Crystal Palace will be eager to bounce back from a disappointing drop in form which has seen them collect just five points from their last seven Premier League outings.

Crystal Palace enjoyed a solid – if far from spectacular – start to their 2023/24 Premier League campaign with eleven points collected from their opening seven games, this run including wins over Manchester United, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield United. Nevertheless, the south London outfit have since experienced a notable drop in form and the visit of AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday evening gives the side a chance to return to winning ways.

Palace avoided a third straight defeat when they secured a share of the spoils in the 1-1 draw away to West Ham United last time out, however while Roy Hodgson’s men currently sit in the safety of mid-table, this could change should they fail to manage some positive results in the weeks ahead. On home soil, the Eagles have won just four of their eighteen games since the start of 2023 and maximum points have been claimed in just one of their six home games in the Premier League this season, however they have beaten midweek opponents AFC Bournemouth in each of their last five league meetings.

Bournemouth managed wins over Newcastle United and Sheffield United on each side of the last international break, however a third straight win was denied them last time out when Ollie Watkins scored a late equaliser for Aston Villa in the 90th minute to force a a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw on the south coast. The Cherries sit in 16th position in the Premier League table with six points separating them from the bottom three after fourteen rounds of fixtures and while Palace have fared far better in this fixture over recent seasons, the hosts have experienced a dip in form and as such, we envisage the visitors heading home with a share of the spoils in what has the makings of a closely-fought affair.

 

Back a draw at best odds of 5/2
