Brighton and Leeds United face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Falmer Stadium. When these two teams faced off on May 15th the two teams played to a 1-1 draw. 

Leeds United has been quite impressive to start the season, and they currently sit in 3rd place in the standings having picked up seven points. I don’t think many had Leeds United sitting at 3rd place in the standings right now. Leeds United has wins over the Wolves and Chelsea so far this season, and they also played to a 2-2 draw against Southampton. In the last game against Chelsea, Leeds United started the scoring in the 33rd minute, and they ended up winning 3-0. Leeds only had 39 percent of the possession but had six shots on target, and they secured the easy win. Leeds played a midweek game against Barnsley in the EFL Cup, and they were able to secure a 3-1 victory. Junior Firpo, Luke Ayling, and Stuart Dallas are still dealing with injuries and won’t play in this game. 

On the other side of this matchup is Brighton, who sits in 5h place and have picked up seven points. Brighton has looked quite impressive this season, especially with the defense giving up only one total goal in the three years. Brighton has wins over Manchester United and West Ham, and the other game was a draw against Newcastle. In the last game against West Ham, Brighton only had two shots on goal, but they made the most of those two shots, and picked up another win. Brighton played a midweek game against Forest Green in the EFL Cup, and they scored three goals on the way to the victory. 

The defense has been strong this season, especially for Brighton, and I expect they will especially take a defensive shape in this game. Leeds United are going to have trouble breaking through the defense, but I also don’t expect Brighton to put too many quality shots on goal here. Look for this game to be lower scoring, and the under is going to cash with ease. Last year the final score was 1-1 and two or fever goals will be scored here. Back the under to cash.
