Brighton searching for a win 

Winless in four games, Brighton have been losing important points and now find themselves close to the relegation zone. They are just three points from 18th positioned Fulham and any slip-ups in the coming games will put them in big trouble.

 In their last match, The Seagulls lost narrowly to West Brom. Coach Graham Potter was in dismay as he watched two of his most experienced players, Pascal Gross and Danny Welbeck both miss penalty kicks. They deserved much more from the game as they had 70% possession of the ball and 15 goal attempts to West Brom’s six. 

Leicester to bounce back

It has been a disappointing last two rounds for The Foxes as they lost home to Arsenal and drew away to Burnley. They missed the chance to go second after Manchester United drew with Chelsea in round 25.

In their last match against Burnley, Leicester had 60% of possession and were controlling the game, however, they had just four shots on goal. They have scored seven goals in their last five matches and they need more goals in their next games to stay in Champions League spots. 

Key Stats

  • Brighton have one win at home this season
  • Brighton have scored in three of their last six home games
  • Leicester are unbeaten in eight away matches
  • Leicester have scored in four of their last five matches

Brighton vs Leicester Prediction

In their head-to-head matches, Leicester have won the last four, with Brighton not scoring in any of those matches. 62% of Brighton’s games have finished with BTTS this season and 54% of Leicester’s games have seen both teams score. 

Brighton matches are mostly low in goalscoring with 38% of their games having over 2.5 goals while Leicester’s 54% of games had over 2.5 goals. 

With the importance of this game and the need to score to gain maximum points for both teams, we predict both teams will score.
