Brighton is in the fight for salvation!
Brighton are fighting a tough battle for survival.
And with victories over direct rivals such as Southampton and Newcastle, they already have a 6-point lead over the relegation.
They were even close to a sensation in their last visit to Manchester United.
However, they are facing a program with tough matches.
And besides, they are anything but a convincing host. If they have only 2 wins at home.
Everton is in the fight for Europe!
For Everton, the points in this match are also very important in their fight for the Euro tournaments.
It is interesting that they are extremely unconvincing at home. And as guests they earn twice as many points.
In their last home game at Crystal Palace, this trend was reaffirmed with a late draw.
Outside, they lost in their last match 0-2 to Chelsea. But before that they were in a series of 9 games without a loss, of which 7 wins.
Prediction for Brighton - Everton
A big problem for Brighton at home is the very low effectiveness of their attack.
Of the positions created for 28.7 xGF ( expected goals ), they actually scored only 16 goals.
At the same time, they have allowed the fewest goal positions against them in their home games compared to all other teams.
We are talking about only 0.82 xGA on average per game.
Therefore, at home Brighton are a low-scoring and strong defensive team.
Everton are in the bottom half of the standings in terms of goals scored as a guest and in xGF.
Under these conditions, my choice is for a low-scoring match.
As a final result, I do not recommend anyone to make a forecast.
Because Brighton are not rated well, but difficult to score. Everton have difficulties in their performances at the moment.
- victory for Everton
- security: 5/10
- exact result: 0-2
