Brighton v Crystal Palace: Rivals to contest tight cup clash

| 08.01.2018

There could be fireworks in the FA Cup on Monday evening as Brighton & Hove Albion and Crystal Palace renew their rivalry.

There’ll be extra eyes on the action at the Amex Stadium too. It’ll be the first competitive club game in England to make use of Video Assistant Referees.

Brighton are 6/4 favourites to make it into the fourth round. Palace are slight underdogs at 11/5. But there could be value in the Draw at 21/10.

Both clubs are amongst the lowest scorers in the Premier League this term. There haven’t been many goals in recent clashes between them either.

Brighton have failed to score in four of the last five meetings. Palace have fired a blank in three of the last four. Under 1.5 Goals looks well-priced at 33/20 here.

It finished 0-0 when they met at the Amex in November. It’s 13/2 for the same result this time.

If anyone is going to make the breakthrough, it could be Glenn Murray. The Brighton veteran is 5/1 to score First. You can also get 4/1 for Murray to score and Brighton to win.

Christian Benteke is Palace’s main goal threat at 11/2 to open the scoring.
