Brighton Hove vs Crystal Palace Fantasy XI

BHA vs CRY India Fantasy Prediction || CRY vs BHA India Fantasy Prediction

Dream 11 Closing Time: 12:15 AM (IST), 9th January 2018

FA Cup – 2017-2018

 

IndiaFantasy Match Preview:

The upcoming FA Cup fixture of Brighton Hove and Crystal Palace will be held in the Falmer Stadium, Brighton. Crystal Palace is most likely to win this match but still fingers will be crossed of Roy Hodgson’s as his seven or more star players are out of the playing 11 because of injuries. Crystal Palace is literally playing with its second team on Sunday in Brighton’s home ground for this fixture. On the other hand Brighton Hove has lost only one of their last five games. Hope may have ended for the home team in the English Premier League as they are most likely to be relegated but in the third round of FA Cup and the rivalry of both the teams is most likely to pay off in this fixture. There are also rumours that from this match, VAR (Video Assistant Referee) will also be used to help the referees with more accurate decisions.

The home team has been in a terrible form lately and they will be contested with the second team of the Gunners as most of their star players are out because of injuries and I would also be difficult for the away team to dominate the game from the beginning.

IndiaFantasy Prediction:

Brighton has only managed to win one of their last 11 matches, although they have only lost one of their last five. Turning draws into wins has been the problem for Chris Hughton’s side, but they are hard to beat on home soil – the Seagulls have only lost two of 12 matches at home all season.

Crystal Palace, meanwhile, have only lost one of their last 11 matches. They have enjoyed a stunning resurgence under Roy Hodgson and will look to carry that on into this fierce rivalry. Brighton has failed to score in their last three matches against Palace but will fancy their chances with this fixture on their own turf.

The rivalry between the two sides will make this a very competitive FA Cup third round match.
