Spezia vs Juventus Salernitana vs Verona Greuther Furth vs Bayern Munich Cadiz vs Barcelona Osasuna vs Real Betis

With both Crystal Palace and Aston Villa safe from relegation and out of the race for the European places, Sunday's motivation is all down to which team wants to finish as high in the table as they possibly can. Sometimes when you get games between teams with little left to play for the games can be less competitive and often boring, but we are not expecting Sunday's clash to be one of those.

Today's Top Tips for Crystal Palace vs Aston Villa

All of our tips contain no bias and have been researched using the latest stats and figures available at the time of publication.

All odds are subject to change but the prices shown are correct on the date of publication. Please check with your bookmakers before placing any bets. 

BTTS

Both teams have found the back of the net in four of Crystal Palace's last six outings in the Premier League, including their last game against Southampton which ended in a 3-1 defeat. Five of Aston Villa's last six fixtures have also seen both teams score, so you can see why we're not expecting any clean sheets on Sunday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Three of Crystal Palace's last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals and each of those games have ended in defeat for Roy Hodgson's men. Five of Aston Villa's last six outings have also witnessed at least three goals being scored and the last time they played Crystal Palace the men from the Midlands ran out 3-0 winners.

Christian Benteke to Score

Christian Benteke isn't usually a striker I would back to score in any game as his last few seasons with Crystal Palace have been awful to say the least. However, the big Belgian striker has returned to form in 2020/21 and looks more like the player who used to score goals on a regular basis for Aston Villa all those years ago. Benteke has scored 8 times in the Premier League this season and is in good form right now with 4-goals in his last seven appearances for club and country and we're backing him to score against his old club this weekend.

An Entertaining 90-minutes expected at Selhurst Park

Crystal Palace don't head into Sunday's clash with Aston Villa in the best of form, picking up just one win from their last six league games, but they are playing some decent football and always look like they could score a goal. With 8pts separating these two teams heading into the last three games of the season, the Eagles could still finish above Aston Villa this season but would have to win on Sunday in order to stand any chance of doing so. McArthur, Wickham, Ferguson and Sakho have been ruled out of Sunday's clash and Tomkins remains a doubt.

Aston Villa were held to a goalless draw at home by Everton on Thursday night and didn't look much of a threat going forward without the suspended Watkins and with Grealish only coming off the bench late on. However, both of those players are likely to return to the starting lineup against Crystal Palace and this alone will be a huge boost for the visitors. Sanson and Trezeguet won't feature on Sunday and there are fresh concerns over Cash and Mings, both of whom picked up knocks against Everton.
