- Following a 2-1 victory over Leeds earlier this campaign, Crystal Palace are looking to win their first double over Leeds since 1985/86. This would also be the first double ever in the Premier League.
- Leeds are currently on a seven-game winning streak against Crystal Palace on home ground, this run stretches as far back as the 2006/07 campaign. The only record which Leeds has that exceeds this streak is their streak against Bournemouth which is eight games in a row.
- Crystal Palace beat Leicester 2-1 in their first game of manager Roy Hodgson’s spell in charge of the London club. This is as many wins as they had the entire 15 games before him (W1 D5 L9). They last won consecutive games in November.
- Ever since their win against Chelsea in August (3-0), Leeds have tallied just two points since with a measly two draws and five losses. In this spell, they scored only three goals.

Current Premier League Standings & Form
- Leeds United currently stands in 16th place with 29 points.

- Goal difference is 38:49 (-11)
- Crystal Palace is currently 14th with 30 points

This win would help either team massively because there is currently just 5 points separating the clubs from 12th-18th place. Unlikely to be relegated, both clubs still need to pull themselves up by the bootstraps to ensure their safety in the top flight. A win against Leeds would put the currently struggling Palace up to 12th place.
Leeds Vs Crystal Palace H2H
In the last three head to head encounters, crystal palace has won all matches with three in a row up to now. Less than 2.5 goals have been scored in 4/5 recent matches between these two sides with Leeds being the first team to score in 4/5 of them. Less than 10.5 corners have been awarded between the two teams in a majority of their meetings (5/6).
Historically, Leeds United has won 47% of their matches against Crystal Palace, 28% of them have ended in a draw with the remaining 24% being won by Crystal Palace. It’s important to note that a lot of these matches weren’t even in the top flight and that both clubs have dramatically increased their quality of play. Leeds also leads the scoring record against Crystal palace with 70 goals compared to Palace’s 54.
Using all-time statistics, BTTS has been approximately 50/50 in games between these two clubs with BTTS at a slightly lower 48% and No BTTS being 52%. With Leeds having such a good home record and them being the slightly weaker, bolstered side I wouldn’t be surprised if they scored alongside their higher-placed rivals on the day.
70% of the games between Leeds United and Crystal Palace have ended with over 1.5 goals for each side. Over 2.5 has been a winning bet in 44% of games historically. Considering these statistics as if I was to bet, over 2.5 would be a relatively safe and rewarding bet even for the accumulator. I wouldn’t be shy about betting for Leeds United to win and for there to be over 2.5 Goals.
Verdict: Over 2.5 and Leeds United To Win
