Brighton vs Newcastle: Prediction and Betting Tips
Brighton hoping to build on their last win
Brighton were back to winning ways against Southampton in the last round after a spell of five winless matches that saw the Seagulls drop into the relegation zone. With this win, Brighton raised their points tally to 29 but still are not safe of the relegation battle.
In their last match away to Southampton, Brighton won 2-1 after a game in which Coach Graham Potter’s team had a good second-half performance, especially in defense after scoring the winning goal and keeping a clean sheet in the second half, something they have done 16 times this season.
Three points hard to come for Newcastle
The Magpies are in the heart of a three-team battle to avoid relegation. Their last three undefeated match run didn’t assist their cause in search of safety much as they got three points from three draws. Steve Bruce’s team are winless in five games.
Newcastle go to Brighton after a draw against Aston Villa 1-1. They were seconds away from grabbing the three points but a 94-minute goal by Lascelles left Steve Bruce and his team heartbroken. That was the sixth time that The Magpies have conceded an equalizing goal this season.
- Brighton have scored four goals in the last five matches
