Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium
Brighton vs Aston Villa: Both teams are going through difficult times. However, Brighton’s advantage at home, his best comparative form at Amex Stadium, as well as the difficulties on the Aston Villa road, combine to choose Brighton hosts as light favorites.
During the last decade, each game has had goals from both teams.
Aston Villa has won the previous two jogging games.
Since 2010, Aston Villa has had a 100% undefeated record.
The last time these two men met on this site, Brighton lost 1-3.
Brighton was on tour the last day of the game, and they had opposed a new Everton look. However, the guests managed to limit themselves to a 1-0 loss.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa suffered most of the frustration of Pep Guardiola and his boys, as they suffered a humiliating 1-6 loss to the local crowd.
Given the outcome of the next PL meeting, consider the external disadvantage of Aston Villa. The team has had problems on the road for quite some time.
In fact, they have not won in ten of their last thirteen road games, and have won in eight of their last nine road games. Keep in mind that Villa lost six of these nine devices.
On the other hand, Brighton has lost only twice at home in his championship campaign since September. Losses also occurred against the best teams, Leicester and Sheffield United.
In addition, Villa has also not won in 11 of his 15 previous matches, and they are currently in the relegation zone of the PL table. In addition to all this, they also face a disability outside this week.
In addition, also keep in mind that Aston Villa is a new addition to this competition, as it obtained a promotion at the top of the hierarchy last summer.
Based on all these observations, it follows that Brighton hosts are expected to record a victory this weekend.
However, keep in mind that Brighton is also not on a good run. They haven’t won in ten of their last twelve games and haven’t been able to keep their sheets in 13 of their 15 previous games.
They also lost the previous two games against Aston Villa, and have not kept blank sheets against this opponent throughout the decade.
Most importantly, Brighton has not yet recorded a victory against Villa since 2010, and lost 1-3 to them only three months ago in this stadium.
Given these observations, Aston Villa is expected to find the bottom of the net at least once on this game day and, therefore, the BTTS bet seems very promising.
