Brighton vs Liverpool
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 8 July 2020
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have built up an unwanted reputation recently that they are unable to perform away from home. Three consecutive road matches in late February, where they lost, denied them a chance to lift the Golden PL, denied them an FA Cup triumph, and finally, booted them out of the CL too.
In effect, the Reds could have gone for the treble this season, if not for their struggles on the road. The German gaffer will be particular to find a solution for this problem, or else they would not be able to defend their PL title against the determined Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United etc.
These teams are adamant about not letting the Merseyside team build a dynasty.
The league winners are taking on the Seagulls, who are placed in the bottom tier of the table, and it seems a good opportunity for the Reds to put an end to their problems in away fixtures. On top of that, they have a great h2h record against Graham Potter’s men as well.
As such, expect a dominating Liverpool win this Wednesday.

- The Reds have a 100% winning record against this opponent since 2011.

Brighton vs Liverpool: Prediction
Potter’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Norwich. Meanwhile, the title-winners registered a 2-0 victory against Aston Villa.
As things stand, Klopp’s men are the favorites. They are the best team in England at present, and they have a point to prove about their form on the road. On top of that, they have a 100% winning record against this opponent, and have conceded a single goal in h2h clashes in the past three years.
The Seagulls meanwhile were winless in 16 of their former 19 overall match-ups, and had a total of two wins at home in their last eleven appearances.
Taking into account these stats, expect a convincing win from Liverpool this Wednesday.
