Brighton vs. Newcastle: Prediction for the English Premier League match (March 20, 2021)
Brighton & Hove Albion F. C.
On Saturday, March 20, in the English Premier League, the match between "Brighton" and "Newcastle" will take place. The victory in this match is extremely important for both teams and we have prepared a prediction for it.
Brighton & Hove Albion F. C.
The "Seagulls" finally managed to take three points in the last round. "Brighton" played against "Southampton" away and secured an important 2:1 win that stopped Graham Potter's team from falling to the bottom of the standings.
Before the victory at "Southampton", the "Seagulls" lost in three matches in a row, with different rivals in the class. Because of such a game, "Brighton" came close to the relegation zone and now the "Seagulls" occupy the 16th position in the standings and are only three points ahead of the group of outsiders.
"Brighton" is one of the worst home teams of the current championship in England. For 14 matches in the home arena, Graham Potter's wards have achieved only one victory, when at the end of January they defeated "Tottenham" (1:0). "Brighton" drew seven matches at home and lost six.
Due to injuries, defenders Adam Webster, Dan Burn, Tariq Lamptey, midfielder Solly March, as well as two forwards - Aaron Connolly and Florin Andone will not take part in the match.
Upcoming Predictions for Football
"Newcastle" is in no better condition than their future opponents. At the moment, the "Magpies" settled in 17th place in the Premier League standings. They are just one point behind their future rival "Brighton".
In the last round of the current championship of England, Steve Bruce's wards were unable to defeat "Aston Villa" at home, ending the match in a draw 1:1. For the "Magpies" this is the third consecutive draw in the Premier League. In previous rounds, "Newcastle" finished matches in peace with "West Bromwich" (0:0) and "Wolverhampton" (1:1). They previously lost to "Manchester United" (1:3) and "Chelsea" (0:2).
The main loss for "Newcastle" is Callum Wilson’s injury, who is the team's top scorer. On his account, there are 10 out of 28 scored goals. Also in the infirmary are midfielder Allan Saint-Maximin and defender Fabian Schar. Miguel Almiron is in question.
There are three very important points ahead for the opponents. "Brighton" won not so often at home, although in terms of the potential they do not look much better than their future rival. However, "Newcastle" has a number of serious losses in attack, so their chances of success are lower than those of the hosts.
In this situation, it is difficult to expect effective football. The attack of "Magpies" is weakened, but they are capable of holding back the opponent.
Our prediction is the victory of "Brighton" for 1.67 odds on 1xbet.
