Brighton vs Birmingham City
England – The Championship
Date: Tuesday, 4th April 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium.
Who on Earth could have thought that Birmingham City would find themselves wrapped up in the relegation scrap in the final quarter for the competition in Championship?
The visitors are only six points above the line ahead of the visit to The American Express Community Stadium and the clash with the second-placed Brighton & Hove Albion.
Brighton & Hove Albion
The Seagulls managed to bounce back and pick up highly-important home win over in-form Blackburn Rovers at the weekend.
It was their best player Glenn Murray who made the difference scoring the only goalč midway through the second half.
The Seagulls are thus nine points clear ahead of Huddersfield Town and the direct promotion is just milimeters away at the moment.
The Blues remained winless in the fifth consecutive game on Saturday as they drew 1-1 with the out-of-form Ipswich Town side.
Gianfranco Zola can certainly see some sort of improvements, but this is still far below the fans’ expectations and the team realistically does not have much to hope for at The American Express Community Stadium.
Brighton vs Birmingham City: Head to head
Brighton have been super dominant in the last couple of matches with Birmingham, winning each of their last four meetings with the Blues.
Interestingly, each of the games during the process also offered the option of both teams netting which gives a decent value to Brighton to win & BTTS bet at the odds of 13/5.
Brighton vs Birmingham City: Prediction
The Seagulls are a stronger team without doubts. They have been super efficient on the home court throughout the season and we have to back them to pick up the victory at 3/5 odds.
Birmingham are desperate for points, but they will have to look for them somewhere else.
