Recent records have shown that goals are always a scarce commodity anytime these two go against each other
Sunday sees Crystal Palace combat Tottenham Hotspur at Selhurst Park in a London derby in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup .
Roy Hodgson and his charges will be looking to take full advantage of the injury crisis ravaging Spurs’ squad at the moment.
Ben Davies joined the mounting list of injured players in Mauricio Pochettino’s camp, when he was substituted in the 33rd minutes against Chelsea on Thursday night. That will thus leave the Lilywhites with much to do in a fixture they lost 1-0 the last time both sides met in the fifth-round of this competition in 2016.
However, they are (2.65) odds with Bet9ja to overcome Crystal Palace regardless of the injury woes which have left the squad thin.
A draw at the end of 90 minutes to evoke a replay at Wembley is priced at (3.30) odds.
The Eagles come into this clash off the back of two consecutive defeats in the Premier League, after that 1-0 win over Grimsby Town on this ground in the previous round of this competition. They are
(2.70) odds with the same betting company to return to winning ways against an injury-hit Tottenham side on Sunday.
However, the last six matches between these two sides in all competitions have all ended 1-0 (five Spurs win, one Palace win). Meaning punters are unlikely to see plenty goals in this encounter.
And putting into consideration that Spurs will be missing a majority of their regular goal-getters in the shape of Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Son Heung-min, this game thus looks certain to produce few goals – with Bet9ja placing odds of (1.75) on an outcome that sees game failing to produce more than two goals.
