Brighton vs Southampton
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 30 March 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: The AMEX Stadium, Falmer.
Brighton host Southampton as they return to Premier League after the International break in an important bottom-of-the-table clash on Saturday, as both sides look for important points to escape the immediate danger zone with 17th placed Burnley and 18th placed Cardiff breathing down their necks.
Seagulls went on the break in a great mood and on the back of FA Cup success, where they beat Millwall on penalties after a 2-2 draw to connect their fourth win in five outings across competitions. They’ve only seen a narrow 2-1 loss at Leicester along the way and Chris Hughton’s men will now surely be motivated to show off – with a very tough schedule to follow in early April.
Southampton have, on the other hand, shocked Tottenham Hotspur and showed off as a tough side to beat in front of the home crowd once again going on a break on the back of a 2-1 win. However, their struggles to turn clashes their way continued on the road and this will be more worrying ahead of the trip to the American Express Community Stadium – as they now look for their only fourth away win in Premier League this term.
Brighton vs Southampton: Head-to-head
Brighton snatched a point at St. Mary’s this term with a comeback completed by Duffy and Murray.
Seagulls last beat Southampton in January 2012, seeing two losses and three draws in five clashes since.
Southampton bagged a narrow 0-1 League Cup win here in August and now hope for a similar upset.
Brighton vs Southampton: Prediction
However, we don’t see the visitors snatching any points on the day and we’ll now rather stick with Brighton to secure an important win in a battle to join the mid-table, as we go for a Home win at an eye-catching 2.40.
We have seen both sides struggling to shut down all approaches to their goal, though, and this promises an exciting contest in Falmer. We thus expect goals on both ends and with hope Seagulls will be able to outgun the rivals – we’re also going for Over 2.5 goals FT at 2.50!
We have seen three or more goals in four of Brighton’s last five as well as three of the Saints’ respective last five, which sounds like further evidence here.
