Brighton vs Arsenal Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Saturday, 20 June 2020. Kick-off 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET at the Amex Stadium.
The Gunners have a game in hand, and if they are able to make this count, they stand a good chance to make it into Europe next season. The fact that Manchester City have been banned from UEFA competitions have made it easier for teams just below them.
However, the Gunners still will have to secure considerable points from their remaining games. The fact that they are on an unbeaten run in overall fixtures, and especially so on the road, is really promising for their fans.
And on the other hand, the Seagulls have been on a rough patch where they have struggled intensely to put forth any kind of an impressive performance. Taking these factors into account, expect an Arsenal win this Saturday.
Brighton vs Arsenal: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Three of the preceding five wins had gone to the Gunners.
- Six of the previous seven match-ups had goals from both teams.
- The Seagulls are yet to keep a clean sheet against this opponent since 2010.
- 100% of clashes at this venue have had goals from both teams, and disregarding one game, all other had three or more goals.
- Since 2010 the guests were unbeaten in all of their visits to this stadium, barring one match-up.
Brighton vs Arsenal: Prediction
The Seagulls were held to a goalless draw the last match-day on the road, by the Wolves. The guests did try their best to put an end to their long winless run, but the Wolves were under pressure to perform, due to their European ambitions.
In the meantime, the Gunners recorded a 1-0 win at home over West Ham. It took the hosts some time to break down the defense of West Ham, but they did manage to slot in the sole goal and the winner of the fixture in the 78th minute.
As of now, the Gunners have won five of their past six overall fixtures (with the sole loss coming in the Europa League), and they were unbeaten in 11 of their previous 13 overall fixtures as well.
And on the road, they have been on an unbeaten run since December, and this season, their sole losses away from home have come against Leicester, Liverpool and Sheffield United – all of whom are some of the best teams in England, and maybe even Europe.
On the other hand, the Seagulls are on a winless run of ten matchups, and they remained so in 17 of their prior 19 overall games too. At home, they were winless in eight of their past nine appearances as well.
Importantly, the Gunners have a better h2h record overall, and especially so at this venue this past decade. Considering all these stats, it’s deduced that Arsenal are on course to record a win this weekend.
