Newport vs Brighton Prediction & Match Preview

Newport vs Brighton
England – FA Cup
Date: Sunday, 10 January 2021
Kick-off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: Rodney Parade.

The Seagulls are a part of the prestigious EPL, and have been one of the toughest competitors there for the past few years. As of now, they are going through a barren stretch, and are placed just marginally above the relegation cut-off.

This surely has been worrisome for the fans as well as players, and they need to get back to their earlier form.

This Sunday, they are pitted against a team from the fourth tier of the English football system, and this presents a huge opportunity for Graham Potter’s men to post a commendable win.

They are in need of a massive win, and all factors suggest that Brighton are on course to do that. In addition, note that they also have a superb h2h record against this rival over the years as well.

  • They had recorded a 1-2 win on the road in the latest FA Cup fixture.

Newport vs Brighton Prediction

The Exiles are on a four-game winless run, and they had conceded two or more goals in two of their former fixtures. They have also kept a total of two clean sheets from their past 15 games as well.

Most importantly, they are from the fourth rung of English football hierarchy, and they are expected to take on a team that’s been competing against some of the best teams in the world in the EPL.

On top of that, the Seagulls also have a great h2h record against this opponent over the years.

Taking into account these observations, expect Brighton to emerge victorious this Sunday, and that too in style.
