          Brighton & Hove Albion vs Crystal Palace Prediction & Betting Tips

          Brighton host Crystal Palace at the Amex in the M23 derby this Saturday in the Premier League. The Seagulls will be looking for a win to get back into the conversation for European football whereas Crystal Palace will be looking to put some more space between themselves and the relegation zone.

          These odds are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.

          There are currently 8 points between Brighton and Crystal Palace as both look to navigate the tight spots in the Premier League. Brighton need to close in on those above them as those below them are within touching distance and Palace could put more teams between them and the drop zone with a win.

          Brighton currently sit eighth in the Premier League after 22 games. The Seagulls have eight wins, eight draws and six losses, leaving them on 32 points, three points from West Ham and eight points from fourth-place Tottenham.

          The Seagulls have scored 38 goals in 21 games so far this season, giving them an average of 1.81 goals a game with Joao Pedro picking up seven goals so far. However, the other end of the pitch is another story for Brighton. In 21 games, The Seagulls have conceded 33 goals and have kept just two clean sheets.

          Crystal Palace, on the other hand, currently sit 14th in the Premier League. In 22 games, The Eagles have six wins, six draws and ten losses which leaves them on 24 points, just six points above Everton in the relegation zone.

          The Eagles have one of the worst attacks in the Premier League. Palace are ranked 15th for goals scored with just 25 in 22 games. However, their defence is a little better. The Eagles have conceded 36 goals in 22 games but have kept five clean sheets.

          Brighton and Crystal Palace have met 110 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1920. Brighton have the better record in the fixture with 41 wins in comparison to Crystal Palace’s 38 wins, the other 31 games ending in a draw.

          In the last five games in the fixture, there has been one Brighton win and four draws. This fixture is a low-scoring one, with the one win being a 1 - 0 win and all four draws being 1 - 1 draws.

          Form Guide

          Brighton

          In their last six games in all competitions, Brighton have three wins and two draws and one defeat.

          Jack Hinshelwood opened the scoring in the 11th minute against Tottenham and Pedro’s first penalty of the game doubled Brighton’s lead before halftime. A goal from Pervis Estunpinan and Pedro’s second penalty gave Brighton the 4 - 0 lead. Alejo Veliz and Ben Davies both scored late on but Brighton took home the 4 - 2 win.

          However, the next time out against West Ham saw Brighton unable to score. Even with 22 shots with eight on target and 69% of the possession, Brighton had to settle for a 0 - 0 draw with West Ham.

          In the Third Round of the FA Cup, Brighton took on Championship Stoke City. An own goal from Jan Paul van Hecke gave Stoke the 1 - 0 lead but a goal from Estupinan in the sixth minute of added time in the first half levelled the game. Lewis Dunk then gave Brighton the lead, but a Lewis Baker penalty drew Stoke level. However, a brace from Pedro gave Brighton another 4 - 2 win.

          Back in the Premier League was another 0 - 0 draw for Brighton, this time against Wolves. Brighton had 72% of the possession but was unable to convert any of their four shots on target.

          In the Fourth Round of the FA Cup, Brighton took on fellow Premier League side Sheffield United. Gustavo Hamer and William Osula both scored for Sheffield United, but goals from Facundo Buonanotte and Danny Welbeck and a hat-trick from Pedro gave Brighton the 5 - 2 win.

          Brighton took on Luton Town on Tuesday night in the Premier League and were left shellshocked as they fell to a 4-0 defeat at Kenilworth Road. During this match, they were 2-0 down inside three minutes as Elijah Adebayo and Chiedozie Ogbene both got on the scoresheet. By full-time, Adebayo managed to complete both his and Luton's first-ever Premier League hat-trick.

          Crystal Palace

          In their last six games in all competitions, Crystal Palace have two wins, one draw and three losses.

          A London derby saw Chelsea host Crystal Palace. Mykhailo Mudruyk opened the scoring for Chelsea in the 13th minute but Olise equalised for Palace in the added time of the first half. However, a penalty from Noni Madueke in the 89th minute gave Chelsea the 2 - 1 win.

          However, Palace bounced back against Brentford. Keane Lewis-Potter gave Brentford the lead in the second minute but a brace from Olise and a goal from Eberechi Eze gave The Eagles the 3 - 1 win.

          In the Third Round of the FA Cup, Crystal Palace hosted Everton. Despite the red card to Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Palace were unable to find a goal, having to settle for a 0 - 0 draw and a replay.

          The Replay saw Andre Gomes score the only goal of the game in the 42nd minute to give Everton the 1 - 0 win.

          Another London derby saw Crystal Palace take on Arsenal. A brace from Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Martinelli as well as a goal from Leandro Trossard gave Arsenal the 5 - 0 win over The Eagles.

          Crystal Palace earned a crucial win over Sheffield United in midweek, as despite going behind twice to goals from Ben Brereton Diaz and James McAtee, a well-taken brace from Eberechi Eze and a thunderous second-half strike by Michael Olise turned the game on its head to give Palace all three points.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          Despite recent history in the fixture, Palace’s poor form in the league this season may give Brighton the opportunity to pick up a big win, especially after The Seagulls’ heavy 5-2 victory against Sheffield United at the weekend. We predict: Brighton 3-1 Crystal Palace.
