On Friday, October 30, the match “Wolverhampton” – “Crystal Palace” starts the seventh round in the English Premier League – we made a forecast for this meeting.
In the last round, the Wolves lost points in their home match with Newcastle. The game has turned out traditionally for them this season grassroots. Only three shots on target were made by Nuno Espirito Santo’s charges . Newcastle hit the box just twice and saved the match one minute before the end of regular time.
Thus, the Wolves’ unbeaten streak has already totaled three matches in a row. In previous rounds , Wolverhampton beat newcomers Leeds and Fulham with the same minimum score 1-0. In addition to them, in the current championship, Nuno Santa’s charges managed to beat Sheffield United (2: 0) in the starting round.
At the moment, the “wolves” with ten points scored are in ninth place in the championship standings, although the situation is tight – only three points separate them from the first position.
As for home matches, Wolverhampton did not lose so often at home. In the last ten matches, the “wolves” have lost only twice, and quite serious rivals – “Manchester City” (1: 3) and “Arsenal” (0: 2). It should be noted that the team did not concede in more than half of the matches during this period.
There are practically no losses in Wolverhampton. Only Honatan Castro Otto heals the injury.
“Glaziers” are approaching the fight with a number of personnel problems. Gary Cahill, Connor Wickham, Nathan Ferguson and Wayne Hennessy are firmly established in the infirmary. There is a suspicion of coronavirus in Jack Butland, James Tomkins and Jordan Iew, and James McCarthy and Gyro Riedewald have not fully recovered. The participation of all five players in the upcoming meeting is questionable.
Crystal Palace started in its traditional style. The team looks unstable, but in six rounds, like Wolverhampton, it has earned ten points and is in eighth place in the standings.
The Londoners lost only in the derby with Chelsea (0: 4) and the match with the championship leader Everton (1: 2). But among the victories one cannot but mention the guest success in the match with Manchester United (3: 1). At the same time, it is difficult to call Crystal Palace a successful away game, because the London club has lost five times in the last seven meetings on the rivals’ fields.
Wolverhampton have won three of their six games this season.
In four of the six wolves’ fights in the current championship, the forecast was “total under 2.5”.
Wolverhampton have not scored more than one goal in five consecutive rounds.
In seven of their last ten home games, the Wolves have not conceded.
Crystal Palace have lost five of their previous seven games away in the Premier League.
In all games lost during this period, the glaziers conceded at least two goals, but did not score themselves.
In the last championship, the teams exchanged home victories 0: 2.
Crystal Palace have scored and conceded in five of their last seven Premier League games.

Both teams play roughly the same style. Their main trump cards are reliable defensive play and quick effective counterattacks. Most likely, we will again face a tough fight in the middle of the field with a small number of chances to score. It is unlikely that in such situations one should expect an abundance of goals in this meeting.
Our prediction – Wolverhampton will not lose + total under 2.5 for 1.93 in BC Winline
