The Panthers (1st) have won 20 of their last 21 games. Their only defeat came against tonight’s rival Eels in May this season by 20-22 points. The defending premiers Penrith Panthers are 8 points clear off the top.
The Panthers are coming off a 20-10 points win over the Sharks in which they came from a double-digit trail.
On the other hand, the Eels are at 7th on the ladder. They are only 2 points behind the 3rd spot Sharks. Parramatta Eels are coming off a disappointing 14-36 defeat at home against the Broncos (4th). However, they haven’t lost back-to-back games this season.
Head-to-Head and Stats:
The Eels are the only team to beat the Panthers this season. However, the Panthers are 3-1 against the Eels in their previous four head-to-head meetings.
- 2022: Panthers 20-22 Eels
- 2021: Panthers 8-6 Eels
- 2021: Eels 6-40 Panthers
- 2021: Panthers 13-12 Eels
Parramatta Eels vs Penrith Panthers Prediction:
It will be a mouth-watering Western Sydney derby on Friday night at CommBank Stadium. The Eels are the only team to beat the Panthers this season. Moreover, the 20-22 win was an away game for the Eels.
Despite losing against the Broncos at home last week, the Eels will draw a lot of confidence from their previous meeting with the Panthers.
The Panthers have won 20 of their previous 21 games. They are 8 points clear off the top.
The defending premiers Panthers were not at their very best last week. They came from a double-digit trail to win the match against the Sharks by 20-10 points. Moreover, their key players Jarome Luai and Stephen Crichton will be unavailable due to injury.
We predict the Eels will be pumped up by the home crowd to bag a close victory.
