🔥 Hot Tip

Jean-Philippe Mateta to Score

⚽ Correct Score prediction

Crystal Palace 3-1 Aston Villa

⬆️ Over 3.5 Goals prediction

Yes

Key Stats

  • Jean-Philippe Mateta looks set to end the season as Crystal Palace's top goalscorer as he heads into Sunday's final game of the season with 13 Premier League goals, three more than his nearest teammate Michael Olise. The French forward is in great form right now with nine goals in his last ten league games and has found a new lease of life under the guidance of Oliver Glasner.
  • We're backing Crystal Palace to win this game 3-1 as Aston Villa have endured a long season and have nothing left to play for on Sunday so could make changes to their usual starting lineup, while the Eagles have scored three or more goals in three of their last five league games.
  • Three of the Eagles' last five matches have produced over 3.5 goals, while four of Aston Villa's last six outings have also featured at least four goals.

Pre-game odds and win probability: Home win on the cards?

  • HOME: 10/11 (1.91) – 52.4%
  • DRAW: 17/5 (4.40) – 22.7%
  • AWAY: 14/5 (3.80) – 26.3%

*odds from Ladbrokes, subject to change

Crystal Palace are the expected winner of this game with a win probability of 52.4%, but we're expecting a close and competitive 90 minutes between the pair.

The Eagles ran out 3-1 winners at Wolves last weekend, while Aston Villa played out an epic 3-3 draw at home to Liverpool.

Player to watch – Ollie Watkins

We're highlighted Oliie Watkins of Aston Villa as our player to watch in this game, not because we expect an away win but because the striker is close to a personal landmark.

Watkins needs one goal on the final day of the season to reach 20 Premier League goals for the season, something he has yet to achieve since making the step up from the Championship.

Aston Villa's main man this season

The England international has been outstanding under the tutelage of Unai Emery, not only top-scoring for Villa but also leading the way with 13 assists and deserves to reach the magic 20-goal mark in the league this season.
