Brentford vs. Brighton & Hove Albion Preview

Brentford vs. Brighton & Hove Albion – Preview and Prediction 03/04/2024

Brentford has performed admirably in recent weeks but hasn’t managed to translate their good performances into points. They’ve gone seven Premier League matches without a win.

Match Preview

The Bees recently drew 1-1 at home against Manchester United. A goal in extra time during the second half earned Brentford a draw, which was well-deserved considering their dominance in the match.

Brighton is coming off a 2-1 defeat to league leaders Liverpool. Despite taking an early lead, the Seagulls ended up losing the match, highlighting their inconsistency this season.

Manager Roberto De Zerbi has expressed doubts about the club’s commitment to improvement, raising the possibility of his departure in the summer.

Although Brighton currently sits ninth in the standings, their recent performances have been regressive, losing two of their last three matches and scoring just twice while conceding five goals.

Brentford finds themselves perilously close to the relegation zone, with just five points separating them from the bottom three and eight games left in the season.

Brighton emerged victorious in the reverse fixture with a 2-1 win at the Amex Stadium in December. Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo scored first from the penalty spot, but Brighton quickly equalized through Pascal Gross before Jack Hinshelwood secured the win.

Brighton has had the upper hand in the last six meetings between the two teams, winning three, drawing one, and losing two. Matches between these clubs tend to be low-scoring affairs, with Brighton scoring nine goals compared to Brentford’s seven.

Brentford has drawn their last two games at the GTech Stadium, earning 17 of their 27 points at home this season.

Meanwhile, Brighton has suffered four losses in their last five away matches, collecting only 15 out of 42 points on the road this season.

Yoanne Wisse and Mbeumo lead Brentford in goals with seven each. Ivan Toney, who missed the first half of the season due to suspension, has scored four goals since his return.

Brighton’s top scorer is Joao Pedro with eight goals, but he has been sidelined for the last six matches due to a leg injury. His absence has impacted Brighton’s ability to score.

Prediction:

Considering Brighton’s poor away record, they are likely to struggle once again on Wednesday against Brentford.

Our prediction favors Brentford to secure a crucial win against Brighton, helping them distance themselves from the relegation zone.
