Brighton vs Huddersfield Prediction & Match Preview

Peter Green - February 28, 2019

Brighton vs Huddersfield
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2nd March 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton).

Huddersfield has secured just 14 points so far, and is 13 away from safety, with just 30 points to play for till the rest of the season. They are all but certain to get the boot this summer to Championship. Their incompetence is even greater in display in their offensive stats. The team has recorded just 15 goals in total from their 28 appearances in the competition. Even the next best is 25.

Brighton, at last, has gotten a favorable draw, and they better make the most out of it. They are not free from the threat of relegation, and with Cardiff and Southampton giving valiant pursuit for the safe spots, it’s imperative they utilize these kinds of easier draws.

Brighton vs Huddersfield Prediction

Huddersfield is the worst team in the Premier League, and by a distance. They require double the points they have now, to at least float above the cut-off line, and with just ten matches remaining till the end of the season, relegation is the only possible outcome. The players are already disheartened and are preparing for life in the Championship. On top of that, they are on the road for this upcoming tie.

They have posted the worst offensive stats in all of the league, with just 15 goals so far at a rate of almost 0.5 per match. They have the least number of goals overall, as well as on the road. Moreover, they failed to score in three of their last five visits to this venue, and have just two goals to their name from the last five appearances here.

And finally, they have not recorded a home h2h win for the last eight years. Brighton, who has kept three clean sheets in their last six home ties, and that too against the likes of West Brom, Watford, and Everton, will figure out a way to shut out the weakest offense in the Premier League.
