Brighton vs Manchester City Predictions & Match Preview

Brighton vs Manchester City
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 12th May 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton).

One more game to go for Pep Guardiola and his boys to lift the trophy for the second time in running – an event that would be the first in England in the last ten years. Such is the level of competitiveness in the football-crazy nation.

Liverpool gave their best to stretch City to its limit, and it definitely did well to the sport in the country. It’s the first time in history that two teams concurrently posted 94+ points. It’s perhaps poetic that the most competitive league sees its eventual winner in the final match-day.

Brighton is safe from the relegation zone and considers themselves lucky that their future does not depend on this last game against the City juggernauts.

  • City recorded a 0-2 away win at this venue, the last time these two met.

Brighton vs Manchester City Prediction

At the end of this excruciating and exciting campaign, City needs to deliver one more win to defend its title. It’s hard to see them losing out on it after working so tirelessly for it. Luckily for them, their fortune rests on their result alone, whereas for contender Liverpool, Manchester needs to drop points.

It helps that City holds a 100% unbeaten record against Brighton, and it would have been a 100% winning record if not for a draw in a cup competition eleven years back. Manchester has scored two or more goals in every league tie, and frighteningly, the team won 28 of their last 30 games, and 13 of their last 15 on the road.

On the other hand, Brighton is winless in their last ten matches and lost six of them as well. They were also winless in eight of their last ten home ties. Since they have already ensured their safety in the league, the squad may not possess an overwhelming need to perform. Expect Manchester City to cruise to victory.
