Brighton vs Crystal Palace
English Premier League
Date: 15 March 2023, Wednesday
Kick-off at 19:30 UK / 20:30 CET
Venue: The American Express Community Stadium (Falmer).
Brighton dropped two points in the battle for European positions on Saturday when they had to settle for as 2-2 draw against Leeds at Elland Road.
The Seagulls were the dominant side on the pitch throughout most of the game but the Peacocks found two fantastic goals to secure a bug point for them in the relegation battle.
Roberto De Zerbi’s men will have a great chance to return to winning ways immediately as they play host to Crystal Palace in the postponed fixture of Gameweek No 8 on Wednesday evening at The American Express Community Stadium.
Palace broke negative records for being the most non-creative side in any sequence of games in the history of the Premier League.
The Glaziers were completely toothless in the final third in all of their previous three matches in the competition.
The latest defeat for Patrick Vieira and his men came on Saturday afternoon when the Glaziers fell 0-1 at home to Manchester City.
On another side, it is worth noting that Crystal Palace have looked better defensively at least in the last several weeks
All but one of the previous nine outings the Glaziers played in the league finished with fewer than three goals scored. Brighton have bagged six goals in their previous two outings and it will be very interesting to see whether the Glaziers will be able to resist defensively at The AMEX.
