Brighton & Hove Albion(WWDWWD )
Brighton prepare for this fixture coming off the back of a 1-1 Premier League tied result against Burnley. In that game, Brighton & Hove Albion had 46% possession and 10 shots on goal with 2 on target. The scorer for Brighton & Hove Albion was Lewis Dunk (36'). Burnley got 21 attempts on goal with 7 on target. Jóhann Berg Guðmundsson (53') scored for Burnley.
Their latest results shine a light on the fact that not much more can be done by the Brighton & Hove Albion rearguard. The Seagulls have given the opposition little, seeing the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over the course of their past 6 outings standing at 2. We will see if that trend will be sustained here.
Aston Villa go into this game after a 1-0 Premier League win vs Arsenal in their last match. In that match, Aston Villa had 33% possession and 12 attempts on goal with 8 of them on target. The scorer for Aston Villa was Ollie Watkins (2'). For their opponents, Arsenal got 14 shots at goal with 3 of them on target. In the course of their six previous matches, Dean Smith's Aston Villa have found the back of the net 7 times thus earning them the goals per game average of 1.17.
We’ve got the feeling that Aston Villa and Brighton should both be able to find the back of the net here although it’s difficult to select a clear winner. We’ll see, but this looks like it could end up all square. Therefore, we predict a close game with a 1-1 scoreline at the conclusion of the game.
