Watford vs Crystal Palace Preview & Prediction


Watford will be starved of a build-up and match sharpness after their clash against the Clarets got postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak in the Hornets camp.

Now they’ve had to wait longer than they would’ve wanted to end their run of four successive defeats at the hands of Leicester, Chelsea, Manchester City and Brentford.

However, there’s no certainty that this match will continue as scheduled. There is a high chance that this encounter will also get postponed. The Hornets would want to play this week against Palace, considering their strong recent history against them.

Meanwhile, Crystal Palace were made to earn a hard-fought draw against a resilient Southampton outfit. Patrick Viera mentioned they struggled with the Saints press but was a good sign they were still able to come away with a point.

Wilfried Zaha got them off to the best start possible, using his skilful feet to power a shot past Tino Livramento in the second minute of the match. Whilst Jordan Ayew scored a tap in from a deflection to bring them level in the second half.

Verdict:

Despite Watford playing at home this week, I believe the lack of preparation for this match will prove costly, with Crystal Palace winning a tight encounter.

Both teams have hit the over more than the under this season. (Best BTTS (Yes) odds: $1.72 with TAB).
