- Title : Prediction fotball: Brighton & Hove Albion - Crystal Palace, Premier Leauge
Brighton have been slowly getting away for relegation zone they lie in 16th place on 26pts with only one defeat in last seven league games Man City beat them 1-0 at Etihad Stadium and since then three wins and three draws in between those league games they had two FA Cup games a home win over Blackpool 2-1 and away loss against Leicester 1-0, Crystal Palace are in 14th place and 3pts ahead of Brighton on 29pts and 8pts ahead of Fulham in relegation zone on 19pts so Palace by looks of things still need a couple of more wins with 14tn games left to play , Palace have a big injury list and key player Zaha will miss the match so i can see Brighton sneaking a win. 2-0?
Brighton is 15th with 26 points, Crystal Palace is 14th with 29 points, after 24 rounds ; the Monday game makes betting for the draw a great temptation. But it should be noted the recent progress of the host with respect to the guest , Brighton is unbeaten in last 6 games (3W3D) while Palace lost 4 and won 2.
Brighton and Crystal Palace face each other in the English Premier League, both teams have problems with the goal scorer. Both teams park at the bottom half of the table. Brighton are on track and are undefeated in their last 6 league games, but have only managed to net 3 times in the last 5 games. Crystal Palace has 2 straight losses in the back, without having managed to net at all.
Brighton have taken big steps in the table lately and are 7 points above the relegation. The defense has stepped up and only conceded one goal in the last 5 matches and Brighton should be very praised for that. However, Brighton have not been as brave in the offensive as before, where they went out on the field and tried to win all matches. In the last match against Aston Villa, which ended goalless, Brighton created very few dangers. Wilfried Zaha's knee injury is a huge setback for Crystal Palace, whose offense is suffering, to say the least. Crystal Palace have gone off the field goalless in their recent matches against Leeds and Burnley and have unfortunately conceded a few goals too much.
This is something that Roy Hodgson will be able to get ready for before the meeting against Brighton. Arranging the offensive will be much more difficult, where the new purchase Jean-Philippe Mateta has not yet managed to net. I can not see any goal party between Brighton and Crystal Palace.
Without Zaha, Palace has a real tough time scoring without him and Brighton have been winning low scoring games. I have to take the under here
