Crystal Palace (LWWWW) and Burnley (WLDDW) will meet on Monday, June 29th for an English Premier League match. This match is scheduled for a 3:00 PM EST start time and it will be played at Selhurst Park.
Crystal Palace is coming off a rough, 4-0 loss to the League's Champion in Liverpool. Liverpool was obviously motivated to earn the three points to get closer to clinching the English Premier League Championship, and Crystal Palace was the unfortunate by-product of that. Liverpool took a commanding 2-0 lead by the end of the first half thanks to goals by Trent Alexander-Arnold (23') and Mohamed Salah (44'). Liverpool poured it on in the second half, as Fabinho and Sadio Mane scored one goal each to seal a route win for Liverpool. Crystal Palace is currently right in the middle of the English Premier League standings at 10th place.
Burnley defeated Watford in its last match by the final score of 1-0. Burnley controlled the first half of the match, earning many scoring opportunities but no goals. Watford took over at the beginning of the second half, as it looked like Watford was on its way to scoring. Burnley squashed that and took control of all the momentum in the match when Jay Rodriguez cashed in on a beautiful header to give Burnley the lead on a counter-attack. After that goal was scored, Watford's spirits seemed to vanish, as Burnley was the superior team in the last 20 minutes. That Burnley win has to be huge for the team's morale and confidence, as Burnley is a bit injured upfront.
The last time Burnley and Crystal Palace met was on November 30th of 2019. That match resulted in a 2-0 victory for Crystal Palace on the road. Crystal Palace has, in fact, won the last four meetings between themselves and Burnley heading into this match. The last time Burnley defeated Crystal Palace was on Septemeber 10th of 2017.
I think Crystal Palace is going to win this match, as I see them shaking off the disappointing result against Liverpool, and cashing in on three points in this one. I know there are no fans in the seats in the EPL, but playing on your home field is still an advantage when it comes to routine, the feel of the grass, and many other underestimated reasons. I will take Crystal Palace on the Money-Line at +125.
