Bitesize Prediction: Brighton vs Crystal Palace – 14/01/22

Competition: Premier League

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

In a derby showdown at the Amex on Friday night, Brighton will welcome Crystal Palace to the south coast when this weekend’s Premier League fixtures open up.

Starting with the hosts, eventually managing to extend on their FA Cup adventure thanks to an extra-time 2-1 win away at West Brom, Brighton should find the mood in their camp at a recent high. More than deserving of their victory at the Hawthorns last week, Graham Potter’s men have gained a host of plaudits so far this season. Last seen on Premier League duties claiming an action-packed 3-2 win away at a downbeat Everton, the one-time Swansea boss still finds his side battling it out in the top-half of the table. Signing off 2021 with a 1-1 draw away at defending European champions Chelsea, Brighton have lost just one of their last eight matchups across all formats. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, Friday’s hosts have seen three of their last four outings finish with both teams finding the net.

As for the visitors, also managing to come from behind away at Championship opposition last weekend, Crystal Palace will be desperate to find some stability in 2022. Eventually landing a 2-1 win away at London rivals Millwall, the Eagles have gained a recent reputation for their lively outcomes at both ends of the pitch. Last seen on Premier League action failing to complete a great escape as they fell to a 3-2 defeat against West Ham on home soil, Patrick Vieira’s men have managed to win just a pair of their last nine top-flight contests. With their inconsistent spell going all the way back to November 6th, it should also be noted that Palace have collected just a single point from their last four Premier League matchups away from Selhurst Park. It should be noted, with eight of the previous nine meetings between Friday’s rivals finishing with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome.

Bet: Both teams to score at Brighton vs Crystal Palace 10/11 for Friday’s Premier League showdown @ 888sport
