Crystal Palace vs Southampton: Comparing the current form of the two, there is no doubt about who the favorites are: Southampton. However, it remains to be seen if they can successfully overcome the challenge of disability abroad.

Meanwhile, Southampton was subjected to a victory back home by the Wolves. The first led 2-0 at halftime, only for the Lobos to score three goals in a row in the next 45 minutes.
Regarding the result of this Tuesday, let’s first consider the current form of the two. Palace has not won in its last five games, and has done so in eight of its previous nine.
Going further, the team did not win in 13 of its 16 previous games, and has been won in 15 of its last 21 games to the public.
On the contrary, Southampton was on an undefeated streak of six games (including five wins) before being unexpectedly defeated by the Wolves on the last day of the game. The team had scored twice or more in their last three matches and had kept the sheets clean in two of their previous four.
Along the way, they are on a winning streak of three games and are on a winning streak of 13 games. In fact, since February of last year, Southampton has not been able to find the bottom of the network only three times away from home.
Continuing, the last five h2h games have seen road teams remain undefeated, and three of them have been victories. In addition, Southampton has recorded six of the last eleven h2h wins, and has won five of the first seven on this site.
Moreover, even in this field, four years have passed since Crystal Palace found the bottom of the net against this opponent, and they have only had two PL victories in this whole century.
Given all these findings, Southampton is estimated to be easily the favorite for this meeting and has the highest chance of victory.
