Goals To Be At A Premium When Misfiring Palace And Saints Meet

Roy Hodgson returns to the dugout on Saturday lunchtime as his new Crystal Palace charges take on Southampton and the beleaguered Eagles are looking for their first goal, as well as their first points, of what has been a dreadful start to the Premier League season...

  • Crystal Palace have gone 360 minutes without a league goal
  • Southampton failed to score in nine of their past twelve league matches

De Boer Out - Roy In

Hodgson was appointed as Frank De Boer's successor following a woeful four games in which the Dutchman failed to get a single goal, let alone a point, out of his players. The London club are now bidding to avoid an unwanted record of becoming the first ever top-flight team to lose their opening five league games without scoring.

The hosts head into this match as a 21/10 chance after winning each of the previous two Crystal Palace v Southampton fixtures on home soil, while Southampton are 11/8 for the win and the draw can be backed at 21/10 (Bet 365).
Match Odds:

Lack Of Goals

Saints have hardly been pulling up any trees under Mauricio Pellegrino this season, taking five points from four games, and scoring goals has been a major issue, which hardly encourages the neutrals to watch Sky Sports on Saturday.

Saints have failed to score in nine of their last twelve league matches, as well as in four of their five league and cup games this season. In fact, Southampton have only scored one goal from open play this term, while Palace have gone 360 minutes without a league goal.

Backing against both teams scoring seems like the obvious choice at 20/21 with Bet Victor for this match.

Christian Benteke has scored five goals in his last five league appearances against Southampton and he is 24/13 to score at anytime (Unibet), albeit it hardly inspires confidence that he has found the net only once in his past nine appearances for Palace.
