History of the Crystal Palace v Leicester City fixture

Crystal Palace prepare to entertain Leicester City at Selhurst Park on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The Eagles are clearly on top, winning 53.85% of the games played between the two.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Selhurst Park was just last season, in January 2009, the Eagles carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a F.A. Cup match.

Recent respective form guides

Crystal Palace's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Eagles have scored 4, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Leicester City's away form is none too clever either, with two wins, two draws, and two defeats. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 leaked at the wrong end.

Crystal Palace are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 38 points from 35 matches. Leicester City's total of 57 points from their 35 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola Championship.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Nothing seems to be going right for the Eagles at home recently, and I can see no immediate turn around in fortunes as the Foxes come away with an easy victory. Away win
