Graeme Potter’s side sit 9th in the national league table. “The Seagulls have amassed 44 points in 35 rounds played. The team had a good run through the second half of December and January, even claiming the Eurocup zone for a while. Then, however, the team suffered six straight defeats in February. However, the Bilo-Syni have been far more successful this spring – only 1 defeat in 6 recent games. Brighton have scored 34 goals and conceded 42.
The team’s top scorer is French forward Neil Maupay, who scored 8 times in the league. Last weekend, the Seagulls thrashed Wolverhampton 3-0 at Molineux. Only Poland midfielder Jakub Moder is sidelined.
Ralf Rangnick’s side sit just sixth in the AFL table with 58 points from 36 games played. They have scored 57 goals and conceded 52. The defenders, represented by Harry Maguire, Rafael Varane and Victor Lindelöf, have been guilty of too many errors. In the last 12 games, there have only been three victories, and that was solely due to the individual skills of Cristiano Ronaldo (his hat-tricks brought a 3-2 victory over Tottenham and Norwich).
The Reds beat Brentford 3-0 at Old Trafford on Monday. Prior to that, Liverpool (4-0) and Arsenal (3-1) were defeated. To make matters worse, the medical centre is full, with Luc Shaw, Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba, Jaydon Sancho and Aaron van Bissack all out injured.
The teams have already met each other in the first round of the national championship and then United took a 2-0 lead. “The Seagulls have failed to pick up any points in their last 7 encounters.
Brighton vs Manchester United
For both sides, the season is essentially over: United will no longer climb up the league standings or lose their place in the Europa League, while Brighton are tucked away in the middle of the table and have largely retained their place in the elite. It is worth assuming that the teams will play open football to the delight of the packed Amex stands. The visitors’ attacking line-up needs no introduction, while Brighton are in good form and will no doubt put up a good fight against their experienced opponents. Our prediction is for both sides to score.
