Brighton vs Leeds: Prediction and Betting Tips

14:00, May 01 2021
Brighton vs Leeds prediction for Saturday’s Premier League round 34 action at Amex Stadium in Brighton. 17th positioned Brighton host Leeds are ready for the final push for a European spot finish. Follow on for our prediction and betting tips.

Brighton looking to secure themselves from relegation

With five matches still to be played in the season, Brighton are seven points clear of the relegation zone club Fulham. The Seagulls need to grab some points to make sure they stay safe something they were able to do in just two of their last four matches when they drew twice grabbing two points out of a possible 12. Having beaten Leeds 1-0 in January, Graham Potter’s side will hope to end their four-match victory drought.

Brighton couldn’t score in their last three matches and if boss Graham Potter wants his team to reserve a place in the Premier League next, he has to adopt a tactic that will allow his players to score. Brighton are better on away matches than at home and average just a goal-a-game at the Amex Stadium. 

The positive side for Potter is his team has two losses in eight matches at home and five clean sheets, meaning they might be able to extend their four-match winning streak here against Leeds.

Leeds United looking for European football next season

Leeds travel to Amex stadium having their eyes on a top-half finish and even pushing for a European spot after they registered their longest unbeaten run of the campaign with s scoreless draw with Manchester United in their last match that extended their undefeated tally to six.

Two straight away wins including one at the Etihad against Manchester City, means Leeds are the only Premier League team yet to draw an away game. They have won eight and lost eight on the road and boss Marcelo Bielsa will make sure his team doesn’t suffer another defeat at the hands of their hosts.

After drawing against two Premier League giants, Liverpool, and Manchester United, Bielsa expects his team can take all three points here at the Amex and break their four-match losing streak.

Key Stats

  • Just one total match goal has been scored in Brighton’s last three matches
  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in Brighton’s last three matches and in 55% of their home matches this season
  • Under 2.5 goals were scored in Leeds’ last two matches
  • Three or fewer goals were scored in Leeds’ last eight matches

Brighton vs Leeds Prediction

Brighton will hope they can extend their home record against Leeds and get the maximum points to secure themselves from relegation. They haven’t been scoring many goals and not conceding many as well.

Leeds feel they had a very good season and would like to top it off with a top-six finish. They know though it’s a different kind of match than their last two games as they have to take the initiative and attack Brighton rather than sit back.

We think it will be a low-scoring game since both teams are playing to avoid defeat and will have defensive duties as a priority.
