Crystal Palace vs Burnley is the Premier League’s only Monday (June 29) fixture this week. Crystal Palace lead Burnley by a goal difference of just two in the table, with both teams having 42 points, meaning both still have the motivation of having a tiny chance of qualifying for next season’s Europa League.
Both teams have also made a similar start after the Covid-19 break, picking up three points against teams that are deep in the relegation battle and losing heavily to a top-two side. But the main comparison is that both teams have built their recent success on their defences, and betting on ‘no’ in the both teams to score market looks the best bet for Crystal Palace vs Burnley.
Crystal Palace had emerged from a bit of a slump before the Premier League suspension, winning their last three games against Newcastle, Brighton, and Crystal Palace to nil. They continued that form after the break with a win to nil at Bournemouth, while their 4-0 thrashing at Liverpool means the Eagles have played five successive games in which one team has failed to score.
Burnley were also in decent form before the break, beating Bournemouth 3-0 at home before drawing 1-1 at Newcastle and holding Spurs to a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor. They lost 5-0 to Man City on their return but also beat Watford 1-0 in their last match. That means that at least one team has also failed to score in four of Burnley’s last five matches.
Crystal Palace have actually won their last four head-to-heads with Burnley but, while that means odds-against for a Crystal Palace win is tempting, both teams have only scored in one of their last five meetings. With both sides also possibly having to do without key players for this match, ‘no’ in the both teams to score market looks the value bet.
