West Bromwich Albion vs Crystal Palace Match Preview, Soccer Prediction, and Betting Tips
West Brom would be keener to return to the Premier League at the end of this season more than winning the Carabao Cup. However, this game would show that they are ready to achieve that goal as well as mixing it up with the big boys well when they return to the Premier League.
After a shaky start to their season in the English second tier, West Brom have improved a lot and their home is where much of the improvements have come.
They beat QPR 7-1 at the Hawthorns a couple of weeks back and that result contributes to them winning all of their last six home games ahead of this game, so Darren Moore’s charge would be looking to continue showing their improvement in this game.
Many people would want to think that Crystal Palace can easily win this game, however, Roy Hodgson may be tempted to rest his star men like Wilfried Zaha for this game, and that could significantly change the outcome of the game.
With Palace almost never winning games when Zaha does not play, it wouldn’t help their fans to know that West Brom have the better of the head to head between these two sides with a record of 24 wins, 15 draws and 19 defeats. The sides last met in a 2-0 Crystal Palace win back in May.
