Wolves v Crystal Palace: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Wolves sign off their Molineux campaign with a visit from Crystal Palace, a mid-table clash between two sides in markedly different form.

Gary O’Neil’s side have gone badly off the boil with just one win in their last eight, while Palace simply can’t stop winning under their new boss Oliver Glasner.

Crystal Palace to win - 29/20

Wolves in 12th take on Palace, two places and three points below them, in a match which promises to be a decent affair.

Under no league-table pressure and with the sun out, there should be a feelgood factor at Molineux even if Wolves have lost their way of late.

They will be determined to round off a campaign which started well with a final home win of the season, but Palace’s form suggests an away win is perhaps more likely.

There is no disguising the fact that Oliver Glasner has turned Palace on its head.

The Austrian has presided over 11 matches since replacing Roy Hodgson with relegation a very real possibility. Under him they have won five of those matches, including four of their last five, a sequence which includes successes over Liverpool, Newcastle and Manchester United.

Glasner has benefited enormously from having classy forwards Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze firing, two players who ran rings round Wolves at Molineux last season, though the Old Gold did somehow secure a fortunate 2-0 win.

But it’s not just the Olise and Eze show at Selhurst Park, where Adam Wharton and Daniel Munoz also deserve special praise in a tweaked 3-4-3 set-up which has transformed the Eagles’ fortunes.

While Glasner benefits from the availability of key men, O’Neil in contrast bemoans the absence of Craig Dawson, their warrior leader at the back, whose absence over the last two months has coincided with the team not keeping a single clean sheet.

Wolves had been going well until that disappointing 3-2 home defeat by Coventry in the FA Cup quarter-finals, but since then they have fallen off a cliff.

They have suffered a glut of injuries beyond just Dawson and have won only one of their last eight in the league, 2-1 against Luton.

Last week they were thumped 5-1 at Manchester City as a once-promising season threatens to end under a cloud.

Daniel Munoz to score or assist - 7/2

They weren’t exactly doing cartwheels down the Holmesdale Road when then boss Roy Hodgson splashed out around £25m for the services of Blackburn youngster Wharton and Genk trier Munoz at the back end of January.

They were the first arrivals of the transfer window with Palace in freefall and few saw them as potential saviours.

The pair have not only settled in quickly, but have also put a stamp on their new side and have become trusted and pivotal figures in Palace’s late-season resurgence.

Munoz is savouring his role as right wing-back in a side which is appreciably more forward-thinking under Glasner than it had been for some time.

The Colombian managed two assists and a shot during Monday’s 4-0 demolition of a dire Manchester United and against an out-of-sorts Wolves, he’s a nice price to have an assist or goal at Molineux.

Rayan Ait-Nouri Over 0.5 Shots on Target - 1/1

Wolves, under O’Neil, also tend to adopt a wing-back system, with Nelson Semedo and Rayan Ait-Nouri the usual candidates to operate in the wide roles.

Algerian Ait-Nouri has scored two goals and had an assist in the last couple of months and will always offer himself in a supporting role in attack.

In what promises to be quite an open encounter between two teams under no pressure, back him to have at least one shot on target.
