Wolves vs Brighton
England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 7 March 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium (Wolverhampton).
Considering the recent impressive run of the Wanderers, along with the dismal performances of the Seagulls for the past several weeks, it’s estimated that Wolves will display a winning performance this weekend.
Wolves vs Brighton Match Preview
Wolverhampton recorded a 2-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Tottenham. The fact that the team was able to pull off a victory against Jose Mourinho’s Spurs, that too on the road, deserves some recognition.
As of now, the Wanderers are placed sixth in the table, and are level on points with the fifth-placed Manchester United. However, note that the Red Devils next take on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, and could be counted on to drop some points.
As such, Wolverhampton could take the fifth spot for themselves, and if they manage to finish their league campaign in that position, they could secure a ticket to the Champions League (considering that Manchester City are now banned from the competition for the next two seasons).
Elsewhere, Graham Potter’s men lost 0-1 at home against Crystal Palace. It was their ninth winless game in a row, and put them in a situation where they have managed a total of three wins from the last four months.
With a surplus of just one point over the relegation cut-off, the squad is now flirting with disaster. They desperately need some points, or else could start packing for their stint in the Championship.

Wolves vs Brighton Prediction
The Wanderers have an opportunity to make a pass at a CL ticket, and this weekend, they are taking on a side that has a total of three wins from the past four months. In addition, disregarding a single match, Albion have been completely winless on the road since August.
Moreover, the two teams come from either end of the table, with Wolverhampton coming from the top tier, while, their counterparts being in danger of being included in the relegation zone.
In addition, the hosts of the day have not conceded a single goal in their past three appearances at this venue, and this stretch included a match-up against Leicester. In the process, the team also had scored a total of seven goals.
Finally, only thrice have the Wanderers lost in the PL this season at home. And all three losses had come against some of the best teams in the competition – Liverpool, Tottenham, and Chelsea.
Taking these findings into consideration, and the chance for the hosts to get into the fifth spot in the table, it’s presumed that Wolves will record a convincing win this weekend at the Molineux Stadium.
