Brighton and Crystal Palace away from Europe in English football

Former England defender Graham Potter's men started strong, with a penalty missed by Pascal Gross and a goal disallowed by Neal Maupay in


Former England defender Graham Potter’s men started strong, with a penalty missed by Pascal Gross and a goal disallowed by Neal Maupay in a first half that they dominated throughout.

Already in the complementary part, Conor Gallagher put the visitors ahead in almost the only clear chance for the team, with a shot from inside the area in the 69th minute.

In the final stretch, when Crystal Palace was savoring victory, Joachim Andersen took the equalizer (m. 87) with his own goal, a result that did not help either team to leave the middle of the table.

Brighton occupies the eighth position, seven points from the qualifying positions for the European competitions and Crystal Palace, the 11th seat with the same number of units from the old continent.
