Brighton vs Sheffield Wednesday Prediction

Brighton picked up their first win in five games last week by taking down Bournemouth at home with a 2-0 scorecard. The hosts certainly dominated that clash and finished the ninety minutes with thrice as many shots on target as their foes.

It is also worth mentioning that Brighton have stumbled just twice in their last seven games in front of the home crowd.

On the other hand, Sheffield Wednesday, were at the losing end for the second time on the trot, after Cardiff took them down at Hillsborough in their previous game. The visitors have now tasted success just twice in their past five fixtures in the second division. Only one of which, was on the road.

Furthermore, to be frank, Sheffield are yet to hit the ground running in their outings this season. Miserably, they have just two wins to boast of from their previous seven clashes away from home.

Moreover, the guests are featuring in the lower tier of English football, as opposed to Brighton who have been proving their mettle among the best in England.

With Brighton tasting success in four of their last seven games here, Sheffield Wednesday are likely to be making the trip back home empty-handed.

Additionally, the hosts have been causing all sorts of problems in the final third, especially on home soil. Fourteen of the twenty-four goals for them so far have come from their clashes at Amex Stadium.

Meanwhile, Sheffield Wednesday have not been shy in racking up the goal-scoring charts either. They have found the back of the net ten times from their previous four outings alone.

Given that their previous h2h fixture here also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, expect goals to be in abundance come Saturday.
