Crystal Palace vs Brighton betting preview

Crystal Palace were dealt a severe late blow in their clash with Bournemouth last weekend, after they conceded late on to draw 2-2 at the Vitality Stadium, despite a goal of world-class quality from Wilfried Zaha. Such match-winning players are the reason the Eagles will still fancy their chances of staying up this season, but this is a game they have to win this weekend with Southampton facing Chelsea at home on Saturday.

Saints are three points behind Palace with a game in hand over them whilst also having an equal goal difference, making this a game that Roy Hodgson’s side simply have to win. Winning just one of their last seven games at home in the Premier League, Crystal Palace need to improve in the weeks to come, though they have faced the likes of Arsenal, Man City, Tottenham, Man United and Liverpool at home in that time.

Palace will be thinking that they have run into Brighton at just the right time this season, with Chris Hughton’s side seemingly suffering from complacency after all but assuring their place in the top flight for next season. Brighton drew 1-1 at home to Huddersfield Town last weekend to make it four games without a win for the Seagulls, with their goal scored against the Terriers being their only strike in that time.

However, Brighton have enjoyed their meetings with Crystal Palace so far this season, drawing with them in the Premier League and knocked them out of the FA Cup, as they now look to go unbeaten in three games against their rivals this term. Without a win in nine games in the Premier League away from home, a draw may well be a good result for Brighton this weekend.

Crystal Palace vs Brighton predictions

Crystal Palace are in desperate need of points this weekend and this fixture represents a great chance for them to take all three. Crystal Palace to win is currently priced at 19/20 with Betfair.

Wilfried Zaha scored a superb goal in Palace’s previous outing and will be full of confidence coming into this game. He has history of scoring against Brighton and Zaha to score anytime can be backed at 17/10 with William Hill.
