Brighton vs Crystal Palace, Championship Playoff Semi-Final 2nd Leg: Open Thread

brighton crystal palace Brighton vs Crystal Palace, Championship Playoff Semi Final 2nd Leg: Open Thread

It’s going to be an almost impossible task for today’s Brighton against Crystal Palace match to come anywhere close to the incredible ending of the Watford-Leicester game, but even if it can be half as thrilling as yesterday’s match, it’ll be a must-see to determine who will play in the Championship Playoff Final against Watford next week.

For viewers in the United States, the match kicks off at 2:45pm ET on beIN SPORT. With the first leg of the match at Selhurst Park in London ending nil-nil, Brighton and Hove Albion have the slight advantage going into this game with the match at their home American Express Community Stadium.

Crystal Palace will miss Glenn Murray, who sustained an injury in Friday’s first leg. That means we could see manager Ian Holloway giving former Premier League veteran Kevin Phillips the start instead of Murray.

On manager Gus Poyet’s team, there are no new injury concerns for Brighton.

Join the conversation before, during and after the match in the comments section below. Which of the two teams would you like to see play Watford in the final? Let us know.
