Prediction and odds for the game: Leeds (11/8) vs Crystal Palace (21/10)
We are backing the draw at odds of 9/4
When: Tuesday 30 November 2021, kick-off 20:15
Where: Elland Road
On Tuesday night, Leeds United hosts Crystal Palace at Elland Road, as the hosts look to move away from the Premier League relegation zone.
The Whites are experiencing a difficult campaign after a solid return to the Premier League from the Championship last season. Marcelo Bielsa’s team are currently 17th place in the top-flight table, just three points above 18th place Burnley, who have a game in hand later today against Tottenham at Turf Moor. A Clarets win would mean that Leeds would kick-off this game in the danger zone.
The Yorkshire team have found Premier League victories hard to come by of late, as they have won just two of their previous 13 league outings. A 0-0 draw at Brighton last time out also means that the Whites have won just once in their last six league matches.
One positive to take from the game for Leeds was that they picked up just their second clean sheet of the season in the Premier League.
Leeds are unbeaten in three games at Elland Road in the Premier League, although they have won just one of their six league matches on home soil this season.
The Eagles have made a solid start to their league campaign considering the number of changes at the club in the summer. Patrick Vieira’s charges are tenth place in the table and just four points shy of the Premier League’s top-six. The visitors are also seven points clear of the relegation zone.
A 2-1 home defeat by Aston Villa last time out ended a seven-game unbeaten run for the visitors in the Premier League. However, the loss also means that Palace have won just two of their previous eight matches in the English top-flight. They have been relatively potent in front of goal of late in the Premier League, scoring at least two goals in five of their previous seven matches.
Palace have won just one of their last eight away matches in the Premier League. However, they head into this clash on the back of a three-game unbeaten run on their travels in the English top-flight.
The visitors have lost on their last six visits to Elland Road in all competitions. They will be keen to avoid a repeat in Yorkshire.
Both teams have drawn a lot of games in recent months in the Premier League. We believe this could game could follow in a similar vein, so we are backing another draw. The other bet we are backing is for both teams to score, simply because both teams have struggled defensively.
Our Tips: We are backing the draw at odds of 9/4 and/or both teams to score at odds of 7/9. (All odds are taken from Bet365).[geosnippet id=3620]
