Tottenham vs Brighton
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 23rd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium (London).
Spurs displayed true grit and conviction in dispatching the quadruple-hunting Pep Guardiola and his team from the Champions League. The two-legged tie showed Tottenham may be finally coming out of their shells, after being perennial underachievers. Moreover, with such a talented group of youngsters at their disposal, it’d be a shame if their trophy cabinet remained empty.
Brighton has a mountain to climb if they are to remain in the Premier League next season. They sit in the 17th spot as of now and have just two points on the exit line. On top of that, along with the already-relegated Huddersfield, they are the only squad to have lost their last four league games in a row.

Tottenham vs Brighton Prediction
Mauricio Pochettino’s men just entered the Champions League semifinals, and against Ajax, they will fancy their chances. The team is on a roll right now, and they will want to keep the momentum going. The next immediate step is a qualification to the next edition of Europe’s premier competition.
As such, they need to ensure a place in the top-four. Given that they are at home for this tie, and are taking on a relegation-battler, the hosts are massive favorites. In addition, the management will try and wrap up the tie early, in order to allow some rest for their main players.
With the Spurs having a 100% unbeaten record against this team (drawing just a single h2h tie, and winning every other one), and a 100% winning record at home, the hosts will go for early domination and victory. Moreover, they have scored two or more goals in every home h2h tie, while keeping clean sheets in every one of their appearance at home, bar one.
Finally, Brighton lost their last four league ties in a row and was winless in 22 of their last 26 away ties. Expect the hosts to be in charge all through the ninety minutes.
