Brighton take on Crystal Palace at home in a rescheduled match in the eighth round of the English league. The home side has a great opportunity to catch up with Liverpool in the standings. Patrick Vieira’s side cannot get out of their losing streak and perform at their best.
After a 0-1 home defeat to Fulham, Brighton made amends in an away game against Stoke City to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals. The Seagulls beat the Championship side by a narrow 1-0 margin. In the EPL, Roberto De Zerbi’s side had time to face West Ham. The club had an excellent attacking performance and scored four unanswered goals against the Londoners. Last week, Brighton lost points away to Leeds United, a meeting that ended 2-2. They currently sit seventh in the EPL table.
Last weekend, Crystal Palace took on the second best team of the current EPL campaign, Manchester City, at home. For a long time, the Eagles were able to hold off the Citizens, but Manchester City’s leader Haaland converted a penalty in the closing stages to give the visitors a 0-1 defeat. Patrick Vieira’s side have 27 points remaining. Crystal Palace are 12th in the EPL table.
Expert Betting Tips
Brighton have markedly increased in the attacking phase, if we take the last two appearances in the English championship. Now, Roberto De Zerbi’s club has a great opportunity to break the series of draws in their personal meetings with Crystal Palace. There is no way Patrick Vieira’s team can prove to be at their best in 2023. Brighton will have extra motivation: if they win, the Seagulls will catch up with Liverpool, while Brighton will have a game in hand. We expect a productive performance and a win for the home side.
