The Wolves and Brighton face off on Saturday in an English Premier League showdown at Molineux Stadium. When these two teams faced off on April 30th it was Brighton that secured the 3-0 victory.
The Wolves come into this game sitting in 19th place in the group, having picked up 10 points. This is a Wolves team that takes a defensive shape, but the offense hasn’t been good enough to pick up the slack when the defense gives up more than a goal. In the last game against Brentford, Ruben Neves scored in the 52nd minute to secure a draw. Diego Costa picked up a red card in the 97th minute and will be suspended for this game. The Wolves had 42 percent of the possession, but four shots on target. The Wolves are super shorthanded heading into this game. Sasa Kalajdzic and Raul Jimenez are both dealing with injuries and won’t be able to go in this game.
On the other side of this matchup is Brighton, who sits in 8th place in the group having picked up 18 points. Brighton’s last game came against Chelsea, and they were quite impressive, scoring four goals on the way to the victory. Leandro Trossard scored in the 5th minute and Brighton never looked back. Joel Veltman is dealing with a calf injury, but it looks like he could be back in time for this game. Jakub Moder is dealing with a knee injury, and he won’t be able to go in this game.
The Wolves don’t have much-attacking talent left in this game, and I expect they are going to really struggle in this game to even get shots on net. All it’s going to take is one goal for Brighton to secure the victory, and they are going to get at least that here. I expect Brighton to score two or three goals, and they will secure a victory on the money line.
