The second round of England’s Premier League is coming and one of the most intriguing matches is Liverpool’s visit to the Crystal Palace home. It is clear to everyone that Liverpool is one of the strongest teams this season, but Palace also retained their good shape since the end of last year. This ensures an interesting match in which both teams have their chances.
In the first round of the season, Liverpool won easily against West Ham with 4:0 as a host. Without any surprises, Salah, Mane and Firmino were at the heart of the success, creating a number of goal attempts against Łukasz Fabiański. By the time of the break, Liverpool could score at least 5 goals, but managed to score only 2. At the second half another two goals scored proved their class.
Keeping their squad from the last year and attracting new recruits wherever they needed made Liverpool even more dangerous. Last year Jürgen Klopp’s team managed to defeat Palace with a 2-1 when Mohammed Salah showed that nothing Lionel Messi could do was unfamiliar to him and scored one of his most beautiful goals in the very last minute of the match.
However, when we talk about Crystal Palace and their latest results in the Premier League and pre-season friendlies, we have to say that their last loss was in March 31, 2018. A loss that came not from any other team, but from Liverpool. Since then, the Palace players had 15 games in which they recorded 4 draws and 11 wins. Quite impressive for a team whose goals are mostly to keep their place in the league.
So if we have to talk about predictions in this match, it has to be said that Liverpool’s chances of winning the match are greatly overpriced. With a odds ratio of 1.45 for a win, it is certain that this bet is not worth the risk. At the same time, the win for the host or a possible draw in the match does not look like good enough options, which forces us to look in the other betting markets.
One of them is Both teams to score with odds of 1.75. For the Liverpool attack, everything is clear, and their defense is perfectly capable of allowing a goal in any situation. This justifies this bet and makes it reasonably suited to play, which makes it our betting prediction for the match between Crystal Palace and Liverpool.
