Brighton vs Watford
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 2nd February 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium (Brighton).
The Seagulls will definitely be shaken that they threw their game away cheap, the last match-day, against the 19th placed team in the Premier League, Fulham. In spite of their away status, Chris Hughton’s men had raced to a two-goal lead by 17 minutes and looked all set for an away win. But once the whistle for the halftime was blown, everything changed.
The hosts delivered four goals one after the other, with no response, to make the scoreline 4-2, and to impose some serious mental damage to the visitors.
The Hornets are in a stiff competition for the top spot, leaving aside the six evergreen stalwarts. Only the newly-promoted Wolves pose some serious enough challenge for them, but the team is counting on their experience to prevail in the long run.
Brighton vs Watford Head-to-head (h2h)
- Four of the last five wins are in the name of the Golden Boys.
- Five of the last nine h2h wins are in the name of the visitors for those games.
- Three of the last five meetings at the Amex Stadium saw goals at either end of the pitch.
- The visitors registered three of the last four wins at this venue.
- The Yellow Army managed to find the back of the net in six of their last seven appearances at the stadium.
Brighton vs Watford Prediction
Albion has scored in 18 of their last 22 home-ties, and in four of their last five h2h games at home. Their opponents for the tie, have scored in seven of the last nine trips away from home, and in six of their last seven visits to the city of Brighton. Keeping in line with the trend, I expect both teams to net goals.
Chris Hughton’s men were winless in nine of their last eleven overall games, and in four of their last five matches in front of their home crowd, whereas the Golden Boys stood unbeaten in 9 of their last 11 fixtures, and six of their last seven on the road. The guests will take home three points for sure.
Since they have scored two or more goals in the earlier mentioned six ties and exactly two in five of the six, I tip them to score another two this Saturday.
