Tottenham vs Brighton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 16 April 2022
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Spurs have made it a mission to secure a top-four finish, and thus qualify for the Champions League next season. They are now placed fourth in the table, and have a lead of three points over the fifth-placed Arsenal.
However, the Gunners have a game in hand, and teams like West Ham and Manchester United will not drop out of the race without giving a tough fight.
Likely, Antonio Conte’s men are under pressure to keep winning. They are at home this Saturday, and are pitted against the struggling Brighton. This team is placed 11th in the table, safe from the relegation threat, and quite below the European cut-off.
As such, they have no incentive to give their 100% on the pitch. Moreover, they also have a poor h2h record against this rival over the years.
By the looks of things, expect a win for Tottenham this weekend at their home.
