Brighton and Aston Villa face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Falmer Stadium.
Aston Villa comes into this game sitting in 9th place in the standings having picked up 35 points so far this season. Aston Villa’s biggest issue this season has been with their inconsistency, and over the last three games they have had two losses. In the last game against West Ham, the defense really struggled giving up three goals and that led to the loss. Aston Villa on the season has put 36 goals in the back of the net while their defense has given up 24 goals total. Ollie Watkins has been the best player for Aston Villa putting ten goals in the back of the net. Seven different players have put at least two goals in the back of the net for Aston Villa.
Brighton comes into this game sitting 15th place in the standings having picked up 25 points so far this year. Brighton isn’t a strong offensive team, but their defense hasn’t been terrible either, but when they have success, it’s because the defense is strong. Coming into this game, Brighton has won two of their last three games, and during those three games, they have given up only one goal. Two games ago against Liverpool, Brighton shut them out. Brighton comes into this game having put 25 goals in the back of the net while their defense has given up 30 goals total. Neal Maupay has been the best player for Brighton putting seven goals in the back of the net.
Burnley has been involved in a lot of scoring games, and that is going to continue to be the case in this game. Look for Burnley’s defense to lock down and that will lead to this game staying under the posted total. Back the under.
