Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton go into this match following a 0-0 Premier League drawn match vs Aston Villa.
In that match, Brighton & Hove Albion managed 58% possession and 26 shots at goal with 9 on target. On the other side, Aston Villa had 4 attempts at goal with 1 on target.
A common trait of recent Brighton & Hove Albion games is the number of results with a nil in them.
From their previous six clashes leading up to this one, in 5 of them a bet on BTTS would've lost. We will just have to see if that trend will end up being continued on into this next match.
Following on from a loss in their previous game against Burnley in Premier League action, Crystal Palace and their travelling supporters will be hoping that they can get a better result in this one.
In that game, Crystal Palace had 53% possession and 13 attempts on goal with 3 on target. Burnley had 16 attempts at goal with 4 on target. Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson (5'), Jay Rodriguez (10') and Matthew Lowton (47') scored for Burnley.
The stats tell the story, and Crystal Palace have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 games, with opponents netting 13 goals in total. At the back, The Eagles certainly have room for improvement.
