Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Betting Odds and Predictions
Does Liverpool deserve the title game against ManCity?
Hardly any club lives as much from its own fan culture as Liverpool FC. As is known, the Reds on Anfield Road will have to do without their own trailers next Wednesday. Nevertheless, the odds of the best bookmakers between Liverpool and Crystal Palace are of course clearly in favor of the Klopp-Elf, who cannot fix the first title win in 30 years as part of the English week.
Because Manchester City did not burn anything against Burnley at home on Monday and last year’s Champions League winner had to be satisfied with a goalless draw in the Merseyside derby on Sunday, Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk and Co. can only be on the couch on Thursday at the earliest Close the sack. Otherwise, next week it will be the reigning champion Manchester City.
Until then, the Premier League leader has at least one game to get in shape. The LFC is still hooked against the toffees at every nook and corner. The coming guests from the capital presented themselves less rusty. Crystal Palace won at the re-start in Bournemouth and thus kept in touch with the international places.
Although Jürgen Klopp will surely warn his team about the opponent, in our eyes before the Liverpool duel against Crystal Palace, a prediction on the favorites is obvious. We also believe that the Reds are more concentrated this time than last against Everton. Consequently, we expect a sovereign home success, which could well come about with two or more goals difference. The handicap bet (-1.5) is therefore our first choice.
Liverpool – Statistics & current form
It is still absolutely amazing that in England you actually knew who was going to win the championship during the entire break. Only the question of when the title parade announced by Jürgen Klopp turned out to be interesting. After the first game day, it is now certain that the Reds will not be able to bag the championship until Thursday next week at the earliest. But then in style when visiting Manchester City.
The Reds cannot become champions on Wednesday
A prerequisite for this is a home win against Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening. Of course, this task sounds feasible on paper, although there has to be a question mark behind the current state of the industry leader. What the Liverpoolers brought against Everton on the weekend in the Merseyside derby didn’t even begin to match what the reigning Henkelpott wearer was able to do throughout the season.
In addition to the battered Mohamed Salah, the offensive was particularly lacking in punch and the final consequence. Both Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino had a weak day. In the end, it was even the toffees that had the better chances on their side and that in the end almost got the second defeat for the frontrunner.
Liverpool in Anfield continues to be a power
We believe Sunday’s performance was just the right warning shot for the star ensemble from Anfield. We simply cannot imagine two such disappointing performances in a row, especially since the LFC can play at home again on Wednesday. There the Reds are still flawless. 15 games, 15 wins and 40:12 goals underline our recommendation to place a tip on the favorite between Liverpool and Crystal Palace. A handicap bet also seems quite interesting, especially since two thirds of the 15 successes mentioned were achieved with at least two goals difference.
Due to injury, “Kloppo” will likely have to go without Mo Salah and Andrew Robertson. Both are on the mend, but we would be surprised if the German cult coach would take too much risk next week with regard to the ManCity game mentioned. Because Shaqiri, Matip, Milner and Clyne are also likely to be out, there will be some changes in the starting XI.
Probable line-up of Liverpool:
➤ Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Gomez; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah (?), Firmino, Mane

Crystal Palace – Statistics & current form
For Crystal Palace, the weekend restart could hardly have gone better. In the difficult away game at relegation-threatened AFC Bournemouth, the Eagles celebrated a 2-0 win that allowed coach Roy Hodgson’s men to continue dreaming of European business next season.
Crystal Palace just four points from Europe
As ninth in the ranking, the capital city club is currently only four points short of fifth. Including the results from before the break, Londoners are even one of the hottest teams in the league. The four most recent Premier League matches were all won. The Spanish goalkeeper Guaita remained without conceding four times in a row, thereby underlining the thesis that Palace is one of the best defensive lines of the English House of Lords.
However, as so often, the medal also has a downside, because while the defense does meet the highest demands on the top floor, the offensive is nothing more than a gentle breeze. Only 28 goals scored correspond more to the value of a relegation than to a Europa League contender. Incidentally, the Eagles get even more goals abroad than at home. Nevertheless, between Liverpool and Crystal Palace the tip of a “zero” success also has an attractive value to offer.
Hodgson’s focus is on the defensive
The team coached by Roy Hodgson, who is known to have a Liverpool past, has already demonstrated one or two times this season that you can take on the best teams in the league. Among other things, the “Crystal Palace” scored against Arsenal, Manchester City or Manchester United. Away, on the other hand, there were also clear defeats like the 0: 4 against Tottenham or the 0: 2 against ManCity and against Chelsea, which make the Reds’ handicap success a lot more likely.
James Tomkins, Jeffrey Schlupp and Martin Kelly will not be available due to injury. There will be no major changes in the starting XI compared to the 2-0 win in Bournemouth. With Ayew and Zaha, Hodgson continues to attack at top speed. In the middle of the field, it’s all about radiating physical presence. The former England coach is an old school coach anyway. The defense is traditionally a high priority.
Probable lineup of Crystal Palace:
➤ Guaita; Ward, Then, Cahill, Van Aanholt; Kouyate, Milivojevic, McArthur; Ayew, Benteke, Zaha
Last games from Crystal Palace:
⚽️ 06/20 2020 Bournemouth 0-2 Crystal Palace

On Wednesday evening, the 40th Premier League match of these two clubs will increase. So far, the Liverpoolers have led the direct comparison with 23 wins. The Eagles have only nine successes, while seven matches ended in a draw.
Even in the recent past, the pointer has clearly moved in the direction of the Reds, which the youngest five games have all been able to win for themselves. Before that, however, the Londoners turned out to be a kind of fear opponent, which particularly shows the statistics that the LFC only won two of the last five home games against the capital club.
