Crystal Palace will round off their 2022-23 campaign at Selhurst Park on Sunday when they welcome Nottingham Forest. Both sides have already assured their top-flight status, meaning an entertaining match should be on the cards this weekend.
Premier League Preview
Crystal Palace will conclude their campaign this weekend, as they welcome Nottingham Forest to town. Roy Hodgson has done an excellent job since taking over from Patrick Vieira, as he has helped guide the Eagles clear of the drop zone with ease. Palace looked doomed when Hodgson was appointed, but he has overseen a masterful turnaround at the club, which could also see them finish above local rivals Chelsea.
Palace come into this match in solid recent form, as they have lost just once in their previous four matches. Meanwhile, they have registered two victories over that period. The Eagles played out an entertaining game in their penultimate fixture last weekend, as they held Fulham to a 2-2 draw at Craven Cottage. The unlikely hero was Joel Ward, who scored his first goal in two years to rescue a point.
Very few gave Nottingham Forest a chance of staying in the Premier League this term, but they maintained their top-flight status with a famous home win over Arsenal last weekend. That success means that they sit 16th in the standings, and they could end the campaign as high as 15th if they land maximum points this weekend.
Forest come into this match in fine recent form, as they have lost just once across their previous five outings. Over that period, they have lost just once, and they are without a defeat in their last three. Taiwo Awoniyi was once again the hero for Forest last week, as he netted his fifth goal in three games against the Gunners.
Crystal Palace vs Nottingham Forest Head to Head
Forest landed a 1-0 win in the previous clash between the sides in November. That extended their unbeaten record against the Eagles to four matches. Their last visit to Selhurst Park came in the 2012-13 Championship season, with the points being shared following a 1-1 draw.
Crystal Palace vs Nottingham Forest Prediction
This should be an entertaining game at Selhurst Park this weekend, and it is difficult to overlook either sides chances. However, a chance will be taken on Forest to end the season with another victory, with Awoniyi finding the back of the net.
