Pep Guardiola’s men could be champions this weekend if results go their way this weekend.
For this fixture, we will take our prices for our betting tips from Booster99 Review.
Crystal Palace are heading into the home straight of the season with a crowded treatment table. The likes of Gary Cahill, James Tomkins and Mamadou Sakho are out of contention for the game against the potential champions on Saturday. Away from the defence, Connor Wickham and James McArthur are also out injured. However, James McCarthy is fit again and he is pushing for a starter’s shirt.
The Last time out the Eagles started well against Leicester it’s but they lost their bearing and allowed the Foxes to claw the way back into the game, restoring parity and eventually winning the game 2-1. That results meant that Roy Hodgson’s men are not mathematically in the clear as far as the threat of relegation is concerned, despite being 11 points clear of the relegation zone.
Wilfred Zaha’s goal against Leicester City ensured he hit the double figures mark this season and they will be counting on him to delay City’s title celebrations a little further. Although that looks unlikely with only one in their last seven Premier League games.
Manchester City could emerge champions this weekend if they beat Crystal Palace and Manchester United lose to Liverpool. That would mean the Citizens will be 13 points clear at the top of the log.
Getting a win at Selhurst Park is a real possibility for Guardiola’s men but they will also hope the result from the Manchester United and Liverpool game back in Manchester goes their way.
City will be buzzing following their 2-1 success in the first leg of their Champions League Semi-final tie in Paris. Kevin De Bruyne and Riyadh Mahrez ensured a comeback win that could see them make their first appearance in final Europe’s top club competition.
Aside from the possibility of wrapping up the title this weekend, Manchester City are currently on 10 game-winning run on the road and a win at Palace will equal the Premier League record of 11 straight away wins.
Crystal Palace have shown defensive solidity recently. They have kept three clean sheets in their last four games. With City coming to town, their backline will be tested.
Manchester City are favourites for the win and they are priced 1.35 on Booster99. That is decent enough to guarantee good value. For our second tip, we are backing Manchester City to win at Half time and Booster99 again offers the Man city Half time win at 1.85.
Although Pep Guardiola might ring a few changes ahead of the Champions League Semifinal second leg game against PSG, they still should be too strong for Palace.
