Brighton vs Bristol City
England – The Championship
Date: Saturday, 29th, April 2017
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: The Amex Stadium.
The late Saturday game will probably be more for the celebration than the proceeding on the pitch. Brighton will be in high spirits as a win over Bristol City will guarantee them the title.
The Seagulls picked up automatic promotion after so many years. The team had a wonderful season. Their success was mainly constructed at home with solid defensive performances. They are the best host in the league winning 44 points and conceding only 13 goals in their 22 home games. Brighton has lost just 2 at The Amex this season against Brentford and Newcastle and is currently in a 4 win streak. 12 clean sheets in 22 home games is a very good achievement showing how good the team has been playing here.
Bristol are currently 17th in the league. They are 6 points above Blackburn with 2 games to play. This practically means that a point won for Bristol or a point lost for Blackburn will ensure the Robins survival. Recently Bristol have been playing well though. They are undefeated in 4 games winning 10 points. Most of the points earned by the team though came at home and their away record is far from impressive. Just 3 away wins for the whole season aren’t something to be proud and going against the strongest home team in the league won’t be easy.
Brighton vs Bristol City: Head to head
- Brighton are by far the better team in the direct clashes. With 7 wins, 1 draw and 2 losses The Seagulls will head into the game with confidence.

- Brighton have kept a clean sheet on 7 of those games.
Brighton vs Bristol City: Prediction
Anything else except a victory for Brighton will be considered huge disappointment. The Seagulls will want to put proper show for their demanding fans on their last home game of the season. Their home record, motivation and class will be too much for Bristol to handle.
