Brighton vs Brentford Predictions and Top Betting Tips
Brighton vs Brentford is always a huge fixture and we have high expectations based on the last few weeks of PL football. Here are our predictions.
Total Goals Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Brighton and Brentford were two of the most impressive teams last season and played some great matches between them. This season has been quite different and Brentford only started to perform well in the last couple of months. Brighton also had serious problems at an earlier stage but have been quite impressive in recent weeks. They are a strong home side and their attack is scoring goals. Brentford have serious problems on the road and concede a lot. We can confidently expect at least three goals in this fixture.
Match Result Prediction: Brighton to Win
This matchup is always extremely competitive and we expect nothing less in this upcoming fixture. Brentford have a brilliant attack but they mostly perform well at home. On the road, the team has a single win in the last five games in the Premier League. Brighton have lost only twice in the last ten home matches in all competitions and while they don't always win, it is extremely difficult to beat them at the AMEX. They conceded at least one goal in nine out of ten games, so we think that Brentford will find the net at least once here but lose in the end.
Correct Score Prediction: 2-1 to Brighton
Brighton started the season with some extreme performances at home but they have not been scoring as much in recent months. They have a single match with over two goals scored in the last five home matches. Brentford rarely concede more than twice, so we expect this game to be at least this competitive. When we compare the Brighton vs Brentford line ups, we think that the home side has the advantage in strength. However, this advantage translates into their attack. Defensively, Brighton are quite bad right now.

Apart from Dahoud and Dunk, who will miss this game due to red cards, some notable injured players include Estupinan, Fati, Welbeck and Lamptey. The team still plays good football with a weakened squad and we expect them to be solid once again. Here is our predicted line-up:
Steele – Hinshelwood, Igor, van Hecke, Veltman – Baleba, Gilmour, Lallana, Adingra, Buonanotte – Ferguson
