Crystal Palace vs Brentford Premier League predictions: tips, odds and team news

Crystal Palace and Brentford will both be looking to end their 2023 on a high when they face off on Saturday at 3pm (UK time).

Crystal Palace vs Brentford odds

Crystal Palace will be nervously looking over their shoulders going into 2024, sitting dangerously close to the relegation zone. Having recently been out of the conversation for the drop, Palace have now gone on an eight-game winless streak in the Premier League, which leaves them just three points above the bottom three. In recent weeks there have been draws against Brighton and Man City, but the Eagles are also on a seven-match winless streak at home in the Premier League.

Brentford aren’t doing much better. The Bees have been flying under Thomas Frank since their promotion to the Premier League, but this season the suspension of Ivan Toney and particularly the recent injury to Bryan Mbeumo has finally caught up with them. They are just one place and one point ahead of Crystal Palace and go into this game on a run of four straight defeats. Brighton, Sheffield United, Aston Villa and Wolves have all taken three points from Brentford, the latter a 4-1 defeat last time out.
