Brighton vs Manchester United Prediction, Tips and Match Preview of the English Premier League match on Tuesday, 30 June 2020. Kick-off 21:15 UK/ 22:15 CET at the Amex Stadium.
The Red Devils are currently placed sixth in the table, and this season, they will be targeting a fifth place or higher finish, failing of which they will be denied entry into the Champions League.
As of now, the Wolves are in possession of the fifth spot, and have a lead of three points over the Devils. However, the latter have a game in hand, and if they win this upcoming encounter, they will be level on points with the Wolves, and due to better goal difference, they will take the higher position.
On top of that, the two teams just below them – Spurs and Blades, are taking on each other this match-day, and as at least one of them will drop points, this is a promising game week for the Devils.
Further, it helps that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are taking on the Seagulls, currently in the bottom tier of the table, who also are going through a troubling run at the moment. As such, expect a winning performance from Manchester United this Tuesday.

Brighton vs Manchester United: Prediction
The Seagulls were held to a goalless draw on the road the last match-day, by the Foxes. For the former, after their surprise win against the Gunners, the draw once again was a return to their struggling run.
In the meantime, the Devils registered a 3-0 win at home against the Blades the past match-day. Not only was it the first PL hat-trick by the team in seven years, but it had come against one of the best defensive teams in the competition as well.
As things stand, Solskjaer’s men are easily the favorites. They had a great win in their latest PL game, and on top of that, they progressed to the semis of the FA Cup, with a late winner on Saturday.
They are also on a 14-game unbeaten run in overall fixtures, and are on a nine-fixture invincible run on the road. Moreover, they are fired up by the triumph of their arch-rivals in the league.
On the other hand, the Seagulls were winless in 18 of their previous 21 overall games, and were so in eight of their last ten appearances at home. Taking into account these observations, expect a win for Manchester United this Tuesday.
