Brighton v Crystal Palace: Betting tips, predictions, odds & match preview
The latest A23 derby centres on the Amex this Wednesday as European-chasing Brighton face relegation-threatened Crystal Palace (7.30pm, UK time).
It is one of football’s more peculiar rivalries, but the bad blood between Brighton and Crystal Palace usually makes for a feisty encounter, and that should be the case this midweek. The Seagulls welcome their London counterparts to the Amex looking to get their top-six hopes back on track after a draw with Leeds at the weekend, while Crystal Palace are aiming to move away from relegation danger.
Roberto De Zerbi has produced wonders on the South Coast following his appointment in September, with Brighton refusing to yield in their pursuit of a top-six finish. As things currently stand, the Seagulls are seventh in the table and just three points below sixth-placed Liverpool, with two games in hand on Jurgen Klopp’s men. They also have three games in hand on Tottenham in fourth which, if they win all three, will move them level with Antonio Conte’s side.
Palace meanwhile are stuck in the doldrums of defeat, with the Eagles winless in 2023 and goalless in their last three matches. Misfiring up front and susceptible at the back. It’s a recipe for disaster, and Patrick Vieira must stem the current malaise or his side will find themselves deep in relegation trouble towards the latter stages of the season.

Brighton v Crystal Palace match stats
Alexis Mac Allister has scored seven goals in 21 Premier League games this season, more than he had in his previous 63 appearances in the competition (six), and the most by any Brighton player. The Argentine has also created 19 chances from open play this term, showing the full scope of his attacking repertoire.
Brighton are, of course, renowned for their ball-playing capabilities and the care with which they pass to one another. Few players sum up their approach to ball domination more than Moises Caicedo, who has attempted 1,391 passes this campaign, the fifth-most of any midfielder in the Premier League.

These two clubs only met last month at Selhurst Park, with the spoils being shared in a tight 1-1 contest. Solly March broke the deadlock for the visiting Seagulls, before unlikely goal-getter James Tomkins restored parity moments later. Palace could do with another result to trap the current malaise.
