Crystal Palace Preview – Easy home win for the Eagles?

Patrick Vieira is having a decent first season at Selhurst Park. Before a ball was kicked, many had the Eagles down for a relegation scrap, but the London side have taken a respectable 24 points from 22 fixtures and sit 13th.

Palace are without a win in three in the league, though they did manage to beat London rivals Millwall away from home in the third round of the FA Cup in early January. The Eagles came from behind at The Den to leave with a 2-1 win.

Our betting prediction:
Crystal Palace to be winning at half time & full time

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1016 GMT, Friday 4 February)

Palace have lost to West Ham United and Liverpool in their last two at home, but Vieira’s boys should have too much quality for the fourth-tier outfit at Selhurst Park this weekend. The bookies are offering just 1/8 for an Eagles victory.

Hartlepool United Preview – Can the Pools upset the Premier League side?

Hartlepool United are back in the Football League after winning the National League play-offs last term. The Pools are having a solid season in League Two, winning eight, drawing seven and losing 12 of their 27 league fixtures.

Hartlepool are on a decent run at present, losing just one of their past eight league and cup matches. In fact, they have suffered only two defeats in all competitions since November. After seeing off Wycombe Wanderers and Lincoln City, United beat EFL Championship side Blackpool in round three of the FA Cup.

Hartlepool have picked up some eye-catching results in the FA Cup this season, and Graeme Lee has done a fine job at Victoria Park since taking over. However, Saturday’s cup tie at Selhurst Park will be an arduous task for the League Two outfit.

This will be the first meeting between the pair since they locked horns in an EFL Cup match back in September 2004 – goals from Dougie Freeman and Tom Soares gave Palace a 2-1 win at Selhurst.

The duo clashed in the FA Cup in the 1992-92 season, with United winning 1-0. Hartlepool also won the other FA Cup meeting back in 1978.


Key Facts – Crystal Palace vs Hartlepool United Betting Tip

  • Palace have lost their two home games
  • United have been beaten on just two occasions since November
  • Hartlepool have won the previous two FA Cup meetings


Hartlepool have already beaten two EFL League One clubs and a Championship side in this season’s FA Cup, but we fancy Palace to be too strong for them at Selhurst on Saturday. We like the look of evens for the home team to win both halves.

Jean-Philippe Mateta netted the winner at The Den last month. The Frenchman was also on target in Palace’s 3-0 Premier League success over Norwich City in December. Mateta is priced at 20/21 to score anytime in this one.
