Brentford enjoy home advantage, when visitors Crystal Palace swing by on Saturday for another Premier League clash. Betting on the draw would have earned you a sound profit the last time Brentford played The Eagles at Selhurst Park. The pair split the points in a 0-0 match, where no one managed to get the upper hand.

With the gap between The Eagles and Brentford being only one place in the tournament table, this is obviously an important match. The guests currently occupy number 13, while the hosts are behind them by 2 as number 14 in the Premier League.

Performances have been rather abysmal for Brentford who will be eyeing a chance of redemption when going up against Crystal Palace.

Brentford go into their next Premier League match, averaging a humble 0.9 goals per game in their last 10 matches, in which they scored a mundane nine times, while conceding 21 goals. That amounts to an average of 2.1 per game, where they failed to keep their opponents from scoring even a single time.

Although outsiders this coming Saturday, The Eagles will be highly motivated to at least keep their current gap in the Premier League table to home side Brentford.

The Eagles are currently performing rather modestly, when it comes to goal-scoring, as they only managed a bearable 13 goals in the past 10 outings for an average of 1.3 goals a game. Their opponents scored a total of 16 goals, and while Crystal Palace claimed one clean sheet, they conceded an average of 1.6 goals per match.

Brentford vs Crystal Palace Preview

Brentford Form

Brentford have had to endure a tough spell in their last three matches, from which they have nothing to show. They were beaten 2-1 by Wolves, before Everton ran out 4-1 winners. A third defeat on the trot followed against Manchester City, who came out 2-0 winners. Brentford claimed a middle-of-the-road three wins in their previous six matches on home soil. They post a record of three wins to three defeats in these, with a scoreline reading seven goals to eight against.

Crystal Palace Form

Crystal Palace have been all over in their last three matches that added four points to their tally. Against Liverpool, they came out empty-handed in a 3-1 defeat, whereafter they avenged themselves in a 2-0 win against Hartlepool. Their latest match saw them sharing the spoils in a 1-1 draw against Norwich. Crystal Palace came through their last six away games in the Premier League without a single win. They have a record of three draws and three defeats in these outings, in which they were outscored by 10 goals to five.

While we do not believe in the away win, we don't quite trust Brentford to grab all 3 points. We prefer a cautious bet on the double-chance or perhaps the draw-no-bet against Crystal Palace.

It is difficult to look past Ivan Toney, when on the search for a marksman for the home team. He seems to be on a strong run, as he hit the target two times lately for Brentford. Odsonne Edouard has managed to score three times in the last half dozen matches for Crystal Palace.
