Brighton and Newcastle face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Falmer Stadium.
This is a key game for both squads and could decide the relegation later in the season.
Brighton currently sits in 16th place in the standings having picked up 29 points so far this year. Brighton had lost three games in a row before winning their last game against Southampton. In the last game the offense put up two goals and that was enough to come away with the victory. Brighton on the season has put 29 goals in the back of the net while their defense has given up 36 goals total. Neal Maupay has been the best player for Brighton this season putting seven goals in the back of the net. Seven different players have scored at least two goals for Brighton.
On the other side of this matchup is Newcastle who currently sits in 17th place in the standings having picked up 28 points. Newcastle United have been involved in a whole lot of low scoring games and even though the offense hasn’t been great, but their defense has stepped up to the occasion. Each of the last three games for Newcastle has ended in a draw and during that stretch they have scored only two goals total It took until the 94th minute but they were able to secure the draw. Newcastle on the season has put 28 goals in the back of the net while they have given up 45 goals total. Callum Wilson has been the best player for Newcastle putting ten goals in the back of the net.
I expect both teams are going to struggle to score in this game and that will lead to a low scoring game. Back the under to cash with ease.
