Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace
Saturday 20th June 2020
Premier League, Vitality Stadium
Live on BBC One HD – Kick Off: 19:45 BST
Bournemouth will host Crystal Palace in Premier League action this Saturday evening as both clubs make their return to the pitch from the coronavirus pandemic.
The Cherries are in dire need for some points, as they currently sit 18th in the league standings, fighting for their Premier League status. Meanwhile, Palace are in a comfortable mid-table position – with a late push for a Europa League spot potentially on the cards.
Bournemouth are priced at 6/4 to win the match by SkyBet and return with a crucial three points in their survival bid. Eddie Howe’s side have endured a tough season and have just three wins from their last 18 Premier League matches. There is still hope for them, with the points all very tight down the bottom of the table and their home form before the lockdown was not terrible.
In attack, Callum Wilson will be their biggest threat with his eight goals so far this season. He is priced at 15/8 to add to his tally on Saturday evening.
Crystal Palace are priced at 15/8 to win the match and continue their positive form from before the enforced break. Roy Hodgson’s side have gone steady throughout the campaign, not producing anything too spectacular but ensuring their safety for another season. They had claimed three 1-0 wins in their last league matches and will feel confident as they return against relegation-threatened Bournemouth.
Going forward, Jordan Ayew has found his feet in the team and is priced at 21/10 to score anytime and add to his eight goals this term.
Last time these two met, Jeffery Schlupp scored the only goal of the game as a 10-man Palace grinded out a tight 1-0 win. Sparks flew throughout the match as 85 booking points were brandished at Selhurst Park. SkyBet are offering 11/10 for 50+ booking points to be awarded this time around.
The match will be televised on BBC One and kicks off at 19:45.
Prediction: Bournemouth 1-1 Crystal Palace
– This match will be tight as both sides will be rusty after the long break from action. Tough to pick a winner.
