On 15 January 2022, the English Premier League will play its 22nd round at the American Express Community Stadium. Brighton won’t meet an English club other than Crystal Palace until this match. The opposing sides will each possess their own strengths and weaknesses. This match is likely to be won by the home team. The game between Brighton vs Crystal Palace match was described as follows:
Monday nighttime brings a renewal of the ‘why is it even a derby’ derby when Crystal Palace goes to Brighton. both facets locate themselves in the backside 1/2 of the desk and that they have to every be slightly concerned by Fulham creeping up in the back of them.
Brighton has pieced collectively a six-game unbeaten run to ease their relegation worries. The Seagulls picked up their first home win of the season in that run, seeing off Tottenham 1-0. With Crystal Palace struggling, we will see the hosts including that during our predictions for this clash.
Palace lost without Zaha
Even as Brighton has visible their shape flip around, Crystal Palace has suffered four defeats of their last six top-quality League video games. The Eagles had been overwhelmed without difficulty through Burnley. Leeds (three-zero and 2-zero respectively) in the latest weeks and matters could get worse right here.
Crystal Palace has lost 18 of their remaining 20 most fulfilling League games wherein Wilfried Zaha hasn’t played, with the Eagles failing to score in sixteen of those 18 defeats.
That effect might be even bigger right here, given that Zaha has scored extra dreams in all competitions in opposition to Brighton than he has versus some other opponent in his English membership career (7).
Eagles look vulnerable
Crystal Palace have did not rating in a higher percentage of their away video games inside the finest League this season (58% – 7 of 12) than they have in some other campaign within the opposition’s history. meanwhile, they’ve conceded ninety-two% in their trips.
That blend has condemned Palace to 6 losses in 12 fits on the street this season. With Brighton searching stronger we see them capitalizing on that bad run.
Brighton has saved a clean sheet in each of their final 3 domestic most appropriate League games. thinking about Palace’s issues going ahead we will see the Seagulls adding to that. A 1-zero home win for Brighton is our correct rating prediction.

Under 2.5 Goals
In three of the pair’s last four league meetings, under 2.5 goals have been scored. We don’t expect many goals in this game if any at all. In Brighton’s last six games across all competitions, there have also been under 2.5 goals. The Seagulls have kept four clean sheets in those games.
BTTS – No
The game on Monday night is unlikely to feature goals at either end, and we may end up with a goalless draw. Crystal Palace has scored against both teams just one out of their last six matches, while they have failed to score in three of those matches and kept clean sheets in two of them. Brighton has also only had a game in which both teams scored in one of their last six matches, but have kept four clean sheets while failing to score one time in those six games.
We’ve backed a draw and that means we’re not convinced that either team will score at Selhurst Park. This is a derby match not based on location but history and neither team will want to give up anything cheapy for fear of a fan backlash. Brighton has proven their defensive ability in the early stages of the season and Crystal Palace has shown that they can keep a clean sheet from time to time as well, which is why we’re backing a draw.
