Brighton vs Leicester
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 24 November 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton).
The former champions of England will travel to Brighton to face the Seagulls at the Falmer Stadium on Saturday.
The home side was able to stay at the top tier of English football after finishing 15th in the table last season. The team coached by Chris Hughton has started this season in a mediocre fashion.
Albion is 12th in the table after 12 rounds played. They have lost 6 of those matches and won only 4. The main problem Hughton has to solve is the weakness of his team’s defense. They have conceded 18 goals already in the season scoring just 13 as well.
Over 2.5 goals were scored in 6 of their league matches this season. In the last 6 matches across all venues, the Seagulls have won and lost 3 matches each. The major plus in those wins is that they managed to keep clean sheets despite defensive troubles.
The Foxes have not recovered from the death of their owner. The team and fans paid tributes for the departed soul, but could not take a win in the last match against Burnley which ended as a goalless draw.
In the last 6 matches, they played in all contests, Claude Puel’s side won and lost 2 each. They maintained 3 clean sheets in that period as well.
The team from Leicester are 10th in the table just 3 points clear of Saturday’s opponents. They have won and lost 5 matches in the competition. In 7 of their 12 league games, the final score was over 2.5 goals in total.
Since Brighton are coming from 2 consecutive defeats in the league, the away side will have the upper hand on Saturday.

Brighton vs Leicester: Prediction
The visitors are undefeated in 3 league games after an away loss to Arsenal. They are finding it difficult to score goals recently and since the hosts are good at conceding maybe Iheanacho and friends will get some goals here. Also, the hosts have lost their last 2 matches. So I don’t see Leicester losing here. Thus a bet for an away win can be placed with
The h2h stats clearly show that most encounters between them saw under 2.5 goals. The same trend is followed by the away side in 4 of their last 6 league matches. Even though last 2 matches of the hosts had a score with above 2.5 goals, fewer than 2.5 goals came in 4 of their last 6 matches too. So we can expect a low scoring game on Saturday. Thus a bet can be placed for this game to have under 2.5 goals with 1.67 odd.
Brighton vs Leicester: Betting Tips
Away win @ 1.83 (5/6).
