Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C (10-6-12).and Brighton & Hove Albion F.C.( 6-12-10) face off in a Premier League showdown on Saturday at Molineux Stadium. The game is scheduled to start at 10:00 AM Eastern Time.
The Wolves are having a nice season and currently sit with 42 points which is good enough for sixth place in the Premier League.
Wolverhampton is usually a lower scoring team, but in their last game against Tottenham they put up three goals and that was enough to win by a goal. The Wolves only had four shots on goal against Tottenham, but three of those went in the back of the net.
The Wolves are a defense first team, but over their last two games they have given up five goals total. In this game the Wolves need to try and get back to the defense first gameplan.
Brighton has been up and down this season and currently sit with 28 points which puts them in 14th place in the standings.
Brighton, for the most part, isn’t an elite offensive team, so when they have success it’s usually because their defense is locking down. The bad news for Brighton is they haven’t had all that much success as of late.
Brighton’s last win across all contents on December 28th against Bournemouth, a game they won 2-0.
Since that point, Brighton has played eight games in the Premier League and they have had three losses and five draws.
In Brighton’s last game against Crystal Palace, they had 67 percent of the possession and 23 shots, but they couldn’t put any in the back of the net and lost 1-0. The job probably isn’t going to get any easier for Brighton, but if they want any chance they need to get the first goal.
The last two games between the Wolves and Brighton has ended in a draw.
The Wolves are the better team and with the way Brighton's offense is performing they are going to have all kinds of issues in this game. Wolves will win this game 1-0 which also means the under will cash.
