Brighton vs Crystal Palace Predictions and Betting Tips
Brighton would be keen on stretching their three-game unbeaten run in the Premier League as they welcome Crystal Palace to the AMEX Stadium this Friday. Read on for our expert tips and predictions.
A late Neal Maupay strike claimed a point for the Seagulls at the Selhurst Park back in September, however, they're still in search of their first win against the Eagles since 2019- a run that has spanned across five games.
Another humdinger of a matchup set for Friday
Brighton affinity for draws has left them has been their Achilles heel this season as they head into this game losing less than every side in the division bar the top three of Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea. The Seagulls welcome the London club off the back of a hard-fought win away at West Brom in the FA Cup with Neal Naupay netting the eventual winner in extra-time. This stretched their unbeaten run in all competitions following their run of two games and one draw which leaves them in 9th on the league standings.
Palace, meanwhile, has enjoyed a rapid rise in terms of footballing quality under Patrick Vieira but still have a leaky defence to pluck. Just like their opponents, they secured themselves a place in the FA Cup last 32 with a win away at Milwall. Domestically, however, they have a record of five wins, eight draws and seven defeats from 20 matches which is enough for 12th place on the English top-flight standings.

Brighton, on the other hand, hasn't lost a lot of games this season and we expect the same pattern to continue here. As such, we predict a share of the spoils in what promises to be a highly-enthralling encounter.
