Brighton will be looking to bounce back after losing 0-1 to Wolver Hampton Wanderers in their previous Premier League match.
Brighton & Hove Albion had 59 percent possession and 12 shots on goal, two of which were on target, in the encounter. Wolver Hampton Wanderers had eight efforts on goal, five of which were successful. Wolver Hampton Wanderers’ goal came from Romain Sass (45′).
Brighton & Hove Albion have preserved a clean sheet on just a few occasions in recent years. In reality, Brighton & Hove Albion’s defense has been penetrated in five of their last six games, allowing six goals in the process.
Brentford and its traveling supporters will be hoping for a better outcome here after a setback in their last EFL Cup match against Chelsea.
Brentford had 33 percent possession and four shots on goal, three of which were on target. Pontus Jansson’s own goal in the 80th minute was Brentford’s lone goal. Chelsea, on the other hand, had 15 shots on goal, seven of which were on target. Chelsea’s goal came via Jorginho (85′).
Brentford has been scored against in five of their previous six matches, with opposition teams scoring a total of ten goals. Brentford’s defense has been far from ideal. Let’s see whether that trend can be sustained in this game.
Head to head
When comparing their previous head-to-head matches, which date back to January 17, 2015, no team has come out on top, with Brighton winning two, Brentford two, and two games ending in draws after 90 minutes of play.
During those matches, the Seagulls and the Bees combined for 13 goals, with The Seagulls scoring seven and The Bees scoring six. The average amount of goals scored each game is 2.17.
Team News: Brighton
The Seagulls are expected to play the 3-4-1-2 formation this time, with Robert Sanchez, Adam Webster, Shane Duffy, Daniel Burn, Tariq Lamptey, Jakub Moder, Adam Lallana, Marc Cucurella, Enock Mwepu, Neal Maupay, and Leandro Trossard all getting starts.
Team News: Brentford
Brentford manager Thomas Frank is concerned about the fitness of several of his players. Josh DaSilva (Hip Injuries) and David Raya (Knee Injuries) are both out.
Alvaro Fernandez, Ethan Pinnock, Pontus Jansson, Mads Bech, Sergi Canos, Shandon Baptiste, Christian Noergaard, Vitaly Janet, Rico Henry, Bryan Mbeumo, and Ivan Toney are expected to start for the Bees in a 3-5-2 formation.
Brentford, in our opinion, will have to put a lot of pressure on this Brighton & Hove Albion squad, who we believe should score and remain on top.
As a result, our prediction is for a close encounter, with Brighton & Hove Albion prevailing 1-0 at full-time.
I’m hoping it’ll be a nice one.
