Brighton and Nottingham Forest face off on Tuesday in an English Premier League showdown at Falmer Stadium. The last time these two teams faced off was back in 2017. 

Brighton comes into this game sitting in 7th place in the standings having picked up 14 points. Brighton has struggled the last few games and over the last two games, they have failed to find the back of the net. In the last game against Brentford, They had 73 percent of the possession and seven shots on target, but they were the team that couldn’t find the back of the net and lost. Brighton is still dealing with the fact that Enock Mwepu had to retire at the age of 24 due to a heart condition. 

On the other side of this matchup is Nottingham Forest, and they have picked up five points. Nottingham has really struggled to start the season, and they need to start picking up points if they want to play in the Premier League next season. In the last game on Saturday against the Wolves, the offense really struggled again and couldn’t find the back of the net. The defense only gave up a goal, but that led to the loss. Nottingham Forest had 42 percent of the possession and two shots on goal. Jack Colback is dealing with a back injury and won’t be able to go in this game. 

Brighton really should have won the last game with how much possession they had, but they couldn’t find the goal. Nottingham Forest are going to really struggle in this game to find good scoring chances, and they will be a shutout. Brighton will score one or two goals here, and Brighton will get the job done. Back Brighton -1 to cash here.
