Brighton vs Newcastle
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 13 August 2022
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium.
Brighton have started their season with an absolute banger against Manchester United and as expected Newcastle have started their campaign with a victory as well. Both these teams will be excited to take on each other this Saturday at the Amex stadium.
Brighton had finished 9th in the table the last time around and they certainly were one of the best teams in the competition. Do note that the Premier League was much more competitive the last time around.
One of their statement wins towards the end of the previous season was their 4-0 score line over Manchester United and they just completed the double with a 2-1 win in the season-opener against them, and that too at the Old Trafford.
It goes without saying that confidence is at an all-time high for them and they will be eager to keep this momentum going.
Meanwhile, sending fans into a frenzy, Newcastle registered their first win of the season and have started their progress towards securing a top-tier finish this time around.
It also deserves to be mentioned that if only the second half of the previous season is considered, the Magpies were one of the very best teams in the tournament.
Going on, they are consistently finding the back of the net lately and have done so in away fixtures as well.
Moreover, majority of head-to-head meetings also have had goals in huge numbers and taking into account all these observations it is expected that we are about to witness a high-scoring affair this weekend.
