Match result prediction: Brighton to win
Brighton lost the game against AEK Athens in the Europa League this season. But the Seagulls seem prepared after back-to-back victories over Ajax in the same competitions. On the other hand, AEK Athens has lost the previous two Europa League fixtures consecutively. Yellow-Blacks have also featured only a draw and a defeat at OPAP Arena against Ajax and Marseille. Therefore, we back Brighton to have the lead and claim three points in this game.
Total goals prediction: over 2.5 goals
The only H2H between these two sides have finished with Over 2.5 Goals. Brighton have found the back of the net eight times in their previous five fixtures in all competitions. On the other hand, AEK Athens have netted the ball nine times in the same number of matches at OPAP Arena. Adding more to this, the Yellow-Blacks also conceded goals in each of their four Europa League fixtures this season. Therefore, a total of Over 2.5 Goals will be our second pick for this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Brighton
AEK Athens have scored only one goal in two of their previous three fixtures in the Europa League. But Brighton has been quite admirable in this regard by scoring two goals in all four fixtures in the same competition. Defensively, the Seagulls leaked five goals in the previous five home and away games. Meanwhile, the Yellow-Blacks have allowed two or more goals in three of the four Europa League fixtures this season. Given the current scenario, we expect Brighton to record a 1-2 lead in this encounter.
