Brighton vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Brighton vs Crystal Palace Predictions
The Seagulls have been in excellent form, picking up eight points from their last four Premier League matches, including a rare victory at Anfield. Brighton is unbeaten in six Premier League games as they head into Monday’s clash, that runs including impressive wins – and clean sheets – against Tottenham and Liverpool. Brighton has scored 25 league goals this season, seven of them courtesy of Neal Maupay. The Frenchman has failed to hit the back of the net in his last five league games, though, and will be eager to stop the rot against Palace. Neal Maupay was the best player on the team last season, he scored ten goals, he is doing great in the penalty area, and he is a real team leader, all praise for him. Tariq Lamptey is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
By contrast, Crystal Palace is in a rut, and the 3-0 defeat at home to Burnley earlier this month means they head into this fixture having won just twice in eight matches in all competitions. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace has suffered a significant loss of form, and despite sitting comfortably above the relegation zone, will be keen to turn things around to avoid being dragged towards the bottom three. Palace tends to struggle as an attacking force without Zaha, the Ivory Coast international having weighed in with nine goals so far this season. Christian Benteke is their next highest scorer with three. Eberechi Eze is a great player, and with one move, he can create problems for the opponent. He has excellent dribbling, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable. Wilfried Zaha is the best player on the team, and it will be challenging to keep him because many great clubs want him. Jean-Philippe Mateta is a great player, and with one move, he can create problems for the opponent. He has excellent dribbling, and in the one-on-one game, he is unstoppable.
It is going to be a very tight clash in which both sides have the chance to take points. It won’t be surprising if the game ends in a draw.
We can expect a big fight between these two teams, and both of them should be able to score. We don’t believe either side will keep the clean sheet.
