Bitesize Prediction: Crystal Palace vs Burnley – 24/02/24

Competition: Premier League

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 2/5 @ 1xBet

Getting a new era underway on Saturday afternoon, Crystal Palace will welcome Burnley to south London.

Starting with the hosts, finally appointing new boss Oliver Glasner earlier in the week, the former Eintracht Frankfurt manager has a real job on his hands at Selhurst Park. Suffering a late collapse away at fellow strugglers Everton on Monday night as they eventually had to settle for a 1-1 stalemate on Merseyside, the Eagles have recorded just a pair of victories from any of their previous 16 straight appearances across all competitions – a run that stems all the way back to November 4th. Opening February with a woeful 4-1 drumming at the hands of bitter rivals Brighton, Glasner will be desperate to improve on Palace’s extended defensive issues. Including a 3-1 loss against Chelsea on February 12th, Saturday’s hosts have recorded just a single clean sheet since returning from November’s international break. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, the south London outfit have seen all of their previous 17 straight Premier League showdowns finish with over 1.5 goals.

As for the visitors, last seen putting in another nightmare display as they slumped to a 5-0 drumming at home against title contenders Arsenal, Vincent Kompany’s side are enduring a Premier League crisis this season. Tipped as a landslide contender to be hit with an immediate second-tier return in 2024, the ex-Manchester City skipper has some mounting pressure on his shoulders at Turf Moor. Without a win from any of their previous eight straight appearances across all competitions, the Clarets open Saturday’s trip to south London sat seven points adrift of Premier League safety. Including a 3-1 loss at the hands of Liverpool earlier in the month, Burnley have continued to gain a reputation for their glaring defensive struggles. In fact, the Lancashire-based outfit have already shipped 55 top-flight goals this season. It should be highlighted, with Kompany’s men seeing all of their last 10 straight Premier League contests finish with over 1.5 goals, we are expecting a similar outcome here.
