SOU vs CRY Dream11: Southampton welcome Crystal Palace to St Mary’s for Tuesday night’s Premier League battle. Crystal Palace ensured that they will be playing Premier League football next season with a comfortable 0-2 victory over Sheffield Utd this past weekend, which took them 14 points clear of the drop zone with only four games left to play. Here they travel to a Southampton side who were beaten 2-0 away at Liverpool last time out as their lack of cutting edge in front of goal without striker Danny Ings available was evident. Should Ings miss out again in this one, it may lead to another frustrating night for the Saints.

In our SOU vs CRY Today Match Prediction odds, we back for a 1-1 draw in this match.
