Prediction: Brighton and Hove Albion vs Leeds United

Prediction: Leeds United to win 2-1

Best Odds: 10/1

Bookmaker: Betfair

Brighton and Hove Albion and Leeds United will face each other in the Premier League this coming weekend. The match at the American Express Community Stadium is slated to kick off at 3pm UK time on Saturday and promises to be an exciting game of football.

Brighton and Hove Albion

Although there have been some positive signs of late, Brighton and Hove Albion are still in danger of going down to the Championship at the end of the season. The Seagulls are 17th in the Premier League table at the moment with 34 points from 33 matches, seven points above the relegation zone.

Brighton will head into the match against Leeds on the back of a shock 1-0 defeat to already-relegated Sheffield United away from home in the Premier League. It followed a goalless draw with Chelsea away from home at Stamford Bridge in London in the league.

Team News:

Danny Welbeck and Neal Maupay are likely to lead the line again for Brighton.

Leeds United

Leeds United are having a wonderful season and are safe from relegation. Promoted from the Championship at the end of last season, Marcelo Bielsa’s side could actually finish in the Premier League top 10 this campaign. The Whites are ninth in the Premier League table at the moment with 47 points from 33 matches.

The West Yorkshire club will head into the match against Brighton on the back of a goalless draw with Manchester United at Elland Road in the Premier League. It followed a 1-1 draw with Liverpool at home in the league.

Team News:

Patrick Bamford will lead the line as always for Leeds. Raphinha missed the game against Liverpool due to injury.

Key Factors to Consider

  • Leeds have scored 50 goals in 33 Premier League matches this season.
  • Brighton have scored 33 goals in 33 Premier League matches this season.
  • Leeds have conceded 50 goals in 33 Premier League games this campaign.
  • Brighton have conceded 39 goals in 33 Premier League games this campaign.
  • Leeds lost 1-0 to Brighton at Elland Road in January 2021.

Conclusion

Brighton are not an easy side to win against, and they will attack Leeds. The Whites showed remarkable defensive astuteness against United this past weekend, and given how good they are in creating chances and scoring goals, it is very likely that they will pick up all three points from the encounter.

Prediction: Leeds United to win 2-1

Best Odds: 10/1
