Where Can I Watch it?
Why Bet on Manchester United?
A little less than a month ago, United and Palace faced each other in the Premier League and the result was a draw (1-1). On that occasion, the game took place at Selhurst Park Stadium, home of Crystal Palace, but United was superior. They opened the scoring early with Bruno Fernandes but ended up conceding in the last minute thanks to a wondergoal from Olise and getting the draw.
Coach Erik ten Hag’s team is in fourth place in the Premier League, in the qualifying zone for the UEFA Champions League. Tottenham is right behind, with three points less and, therefore, this victory against Crystal Palace will serve not only to recover the spirit and confidence of the team but also to distance themselves from the rivals that are chasing them.
Bruno Fernandez, De Gea, and Rashford have been playing very well in this edition of the Premier League and United’s good results are directly related to the performance of these players.
Why Bet on Crystal Palace?
Crystal Palace hasn’t known what it’s like to win since December 2022, when they beat Bournemouth 2-0 away from home. Since then, there have been two draws and two defeats, which put the team in 12th place in the Premier League.
Despite the bad results, Palace has players of great technical quality, such as forwards Zaha and Olise, in addition to midfielder Doucouré, who has been the most praised by the fans in recent games.
After the draw against the same opponent a few weeks ago, Crystal Palace should prepare a little better to face Manchester United, seeking to nullify the moves of Bruno Fernandes and Rashford.
Final Betting Analysis: Manchester United vs. Crystal Palace
This will be a very balanced match that can be decided on the details. Both teams are not currently having a good moment, which means that they will risk more to seek the goal and will try to innovate in their methods of defending and attacking.
United is close to the best teams in the league and will play at home. The home factor in the Premier League is very important, especially at stadiums like Old Trafford, which have an incredible atmosphere to motivate their players.
We believe in Manchester United’s victory in this game.
If you put $100 into Manchester United’s win, you could get $40.32 back for a total payout of $140.32.
