Wolverhampton vs Crystal Palace Preview and Prediction – May 11, 2024

Crystal Palace enters the clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers riding high on a wave of impressive form in the Premier League.

Oliver Glasner’s revitalized Eagles are unbeaten in five consecutive league matches, setting the stage for an intriguing showdown at Molineux on Saturday.

Match Preview

Palace emerged victorious in the previous encounter against Wolves at Selhurst Park, securing a 3-2 win in September.

This victory marked their fifth win in the last six matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers, with four of those victories achieved at Selhurst Park.

Last season, Wolverhampton secured a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Molineux. However, this home win contradicted Wolves’ recent results against Crystal Palace.

Palace has accumulated 13 points from the last 18 available in the league, scoring 15 goals and conceding seven times. Additionally, they kept two clean sheets during this five-game period.

The Eagles demonstrated their prowess with a remarkable 4-0 triumph over Manchester United in their previous outing, showcasing the improvements implemented by Glasner at the club.

While Palace has been in good form, Wolves have struggled.

They amassed only four points from their last six matches, conceding 13 goals and scoring six. With their Premier League status secured, Wolves have shown a downturn in performance over the last month.

In the reverse fixture, striker Odsonne Edouard netted a brace for Palace, while Eberechi Eze also contributed to the scoresheet. Hwang Hee-Chan and Matheus Cunha scored for Wolves, with Cunha’s goal coming in the 95th minute.

Jean-Philippe Mateta leads Crystal Palace in goal-scoring, tallying 12 goals, closely followed by Michael Olise with nine goals. Both players showcased their form with goals against Manchester United last weekend.

Wolves are coming off a 5-1 defeat to Manchester City, with Hwang scoring their only goal in the match.

Of their 46 points this season, 27 have been earned at home, while Palace has secured only 18 of their 43 points on the road.

Prediction & Analysis:

Despite Crystal Palace’s struggles on the road, their current form and Wolves’ recent slump suggest an advantage for the away side.

A 2-0 victory for Crystal Palace is predicted, with their momentum likely to carry them to success against a relaxed Wolves outfit.

A win could propel Palace into 12th place in the Premier League standings, further solidifying their impressive resurgence under Glasner’s guidance.
