West Ham host neighbors Crystal Palace on matchday 32. The clash is taking place at Boleyn Ground on Saturday, April 2nd.
Both teams desperately need points as West Ham are battling for top-4 while Crystal Palace still need to secure the place in top division. The hosts have the best season in many years and their chances for one of Champions League spots. Slaven Bilic’s men are currently fifth with only one point behind Manchester City (4th). The team gained solid conditions after the Boxing Day as they suffered only two defeats after that. Moreover, their last home defeat happened in August last year which impressive achievement. The Hammers are still battling for the FA Cup Trophy and they need to overcome the United in rematch at home to gain place in the semifinal at Wembley. So, we can expect West Ham to battle for 3 points only as they are in great shape and can reach outstanding results this season.

Crystal Palace, in turn, are in awful shape after the Boxing Day and the results of the team is quite poor. The Eagles are 16th with only 7 points above the drop line and this handicap can be easily covered by any of the teams above as usually some of the lowlies show impressive strive to avoid relegation. Alan Pardew’s men failed to win a single match this year. The last time Palace took three points was back in December when they defeated Stoke City on the road (2-1). On the other hand, Crystal Palace show impressive results in the FA Cup as they have already booked the place in the semifinals at Wembley against Watford. However, even the trophy won’t save them from relegation if they continue to show such disappointing results.
Bookmakers see the hosts as favorites (2.05) which isn’t a surprise. West Ham are strong at home and many big clubs experienced the strength of the hosts this season. The Hammers have talented squad that brilliantly managed by the Croatian manages. This is why we can expect the hosts to prevail in the match that should end with their victory. However, matches that follow international breaks can be full of surprises so we suggest to bet with (0) Asian handicap.
Prediction for the match: West Ham to win with 0.0 Asian handicap.
