Brighton vs Newcastle
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 27th April 2019
Kick-off at 17.30 UK/ 18.30 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton).
Brighton faces a tough task this weekend. As of now, they are the last safe team in the competition, and even though they enjoy a three-point lead over the 18th placed Cardiff, the fact that the latter is taking on an already-relegated Fulham, while Brighton is going against Newcastle, might complicate things.
Newcastle may be safe from relegation, but their fans might not be over the moon. The reason being the team’s terrible run on the road, and what this might mean for the team in the next edition of the competition. Three matches remain for them to sort out things, and enter the new season on a positive note.
Brighton vs Newcastle: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Four of the last six wins went to Brighton.
- Only once has a tie ended with more than two goals.
- At this venue, except for a single fixture, all were home wins.
- Newcastle failed to score in three of their last four visits to the stadium.
Brighton vs Newcastle: Prediction
Newcastle was winless in nine of their last ten away ties and in 20 of their last 23. Of the three games they won in the last 23 attempts on the road, two were against relegation-battlers. Moreover, they lost every one of their h2h meeting against Brighton at this venue, bar one.
To be precise, Brighton holds a 100% unbeaten record in Premier League games, and in PL matches at this venue, they hold a 100% winning record. Impressively, they have never even conceded against Newcastle in a top-division tie.
With their future hanging in the balance, we can count on Brighton to give the toughest of fights against Newcastle. It also helps that Newcastle is already free of the relegation threat, and is under no pressure to perform. Expect Brighton to take advantage of their home status this Saturday.
