This article will focus on the upcoming Crystal Palace vs Brighton blockbuster. For the upcoming fixture, Crystal Palace will host their rivals, Brighton, at the Selhurst Park Stadium in the top-tier Premier League 2021-22. We are no strangers to the Crystal Palace and Brighton rivalry that dates back to the 1970s. To most, this might not strike you as the most exciting one but for their fans, the atmosphere is typically intense. And if a game is to be played at Crystal Palace’s compact Selhurst Park stadium then things will definitely kick up a notch. Brighton is in great form this season and has won four out of its 5 fixtures. With 12 points it flies high at the 4th position far away from Crystal Palace’s 14th spot. On the flip side, however, in head-to-head comparison Crystal Palace has dominated the records so far.
Brighton is in its current best form and their excellent form continued on Wednesday. They bagged a 2-0 win over Swansea and previously having defeated Leicester City 2-1 at home, their confidence level will be hard to meet. Crystal Palace is struggling with the poor form of its players and the matchup against Brighton will definitely be the perfect opportunity for Palace to bag the necessary 3 points. Last season Brighton dominated with their good performances but were not able to covert those into victories. However, this time despite some injuries Brighton looks strong not only on papers but also in the field. Most likely on Monday also they will be smashing Crystal Palace with a 2-0 victory.
