Brighton vs Brentford: Preview & Prediction

England Premier League
Saturday 1st April 2023
Kick off at 3pm BST
Venue: Amex Stadium

Match Preview:

Brighton have their ideas set on European football next season and they still have not given up the idea of stunning everyone and grabbing 4th place. They are in 7th with 42 points and are seven points behind fourth placed Tottenham, that’s not the best of the news, but the good news is they have 3 games in hand over the Londoners, and anything at this point could be possible.

Form for the Seagulls has been mixed with 8 points won from their last five games but it’s just one loss in that time although they will need to get back to winning more consistently. Their last game ended in a 1-0 win at home against Crystal Palace and they do come into this weekend unbeaten in their last three. At home they have won 4 from their last 5 games and have been looking formidable here and they will give the players a good boost ahead of this fixture.

Brentford have the same points as their hosts so this makes this game very interesting indeed although they have played two games more but European qualification is not off the scale just yet for the Bees who have really punched above their weight this season. Like Brighton they have won 8 points from their last five and their last game finished in a 1-1 draw against Leicester. Along with Brighton, what has been so impressive with the club is the goals scored and the teams currently rank in 5th and 6th place for that and it could well make this fixture exciting. Brentford’s majority result on the road is the draw with 6 so far 13 games and on the road it is just one defeat this year which came recently against Everton. Both sides have the chance to go into 6th place if Liverpool have lost earlier in the day against Manchester City.


Team News:

Brighton: Tariq Lamptey has recovered from a knee injury but may not be risked but he is being pencilled in to return for this game. Jeremy Sarimento could well miss the rest of the season after a foot injury on international duty.

Brentford: Shandon Baptiste is suspended for his sending off in the last game, Kristoffer Ajer remains out with a calf injury. Keane Lewis-Potter is out until May with a knee injury.


Brighton vs Brentford Head to Head:

Last season Brighton won this fixture 2-0.

Earlier in the season in the reverse fixture Brentford won 2-0.

In the last 9 games this fixture has seen a correct score of 2-0 four times; two times for Brighton and two times for Brentford.

The last 3 meetings in a row have all seen under 2.5 goals.


Brighton vs Brentford Prediction:

Draws can be risky but we see this game ending this way, however for extra interest and less risk the value then would be backing the away side on the double chance to cover the draw and a win. Both teams have 42 points of course and the onus will be on Brighton being at home to come forward and take some risks, with a 3 game advantage over Tottenham and some of their rivals they will be prompted to come forward more. Brighton certainly has the quality to win this game but games between these two can be quite unpredictable and we can see this being a very close game.

It is also worth backing the correct score at half time and we think the game won’t open up until the second half based on the fact we have two teams who may be cagey in the early exchanges with being so close in the league together. We don’t expect to see an exciting game but the latter stages should provide some joy on the eye as both sides take more risks.


Brighton vs Brentford Betting Tips:

Double Chance: Brentford win or draw at 2.25

Half Time Correct Score: 0-0 at 3.25

Highest Scoring Half: 2nd half at 2.10
