Brighton vs Newcastle United
England – Premier League
Date: Monday, 20 July 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium.
The teams have nothing left to play for in the league, and might opt to give their youngsters an opportunity to prove themselves.
The Seagulls have a buffer of six points over the relegation cut-off, and despite still needing one more point to mathematically ensure their title, they have a rather comfortable lead in goal difference. It would now take miracles of highest order for them to get the boot.
Meanwhile, the Magpies would be disappointed that their form towards the end of the season failed to fetch them a spot in Europe. They are placed comfortably in the mid-table, away from relegation as well as European cut-offs.
Graham Potter’s men seem to have the upper hand this Sunday – the reason being, their domination in h2h clashes recently, and with this being their final home game of the season, they would attempt to deliver a memorable performance.
As such, expect Brighton to avoid a defeat at all costs.

Taking into account these observations, expect Brighton to deliver the better performance this Monday.
