Brighton faces Southampton on Monday, December 7th at Amex Stadium for an English Premier League match.
Brighton is coming off a 1-1 draw to Liverpool in its last match on November 28th. Diogo Jota gave the defending champions in Liverpool the lead in the 60th minute, but a late penalty by Liverpool gave Brighton a chance to equalize in added time. In 90+3, Pascal Gross scored on the penalty, and the 1-1 draw stood. Brighton is now 2-4-4 on the year, which puts the club in 16th place in the Premier League standings. Brighton has earned at least one point in four of its last five matches in Premier League play, which shows that Brighton is heating up a bit. On the year, Brighton has scored 14 goals and has conceded 16 goals to its opponents, giving Brighton a -2 goal differential so far this season.
Southampton is coming off a 3-2 loss to Manchester United in its last match at home on November 29th. Although Southampton built a 2-0 lead by halftime, Manchester United's power in the second half was too much for Southampton. Manchester United scored three unanswered goals in the final 45 minutes, including the game-winner by Cavani in the 90+3 to give Manchester United the dramatic win. The tough loss for Southampton was the club's third of the season, as now Southampton is 5-2-3 on the year and in 8th place in the Premier League standings. Southampton has scored 19 goals and has allowed 16 goals this season, therefore the club has a +3 goal differential thus far.
The last time Brighton and Southampton met was on July 16th of 2020. In that match, the two clubs took a 1-1 draw.
I am going to take Southampton to win this match after such a heartbreaking loss last week. Southampton getting +190 odds is enough value for me to take a stab.
