Brighton & Hove VS Newcastle United Match Prediction
Brighton won the reverse fixture back on 20th September, returning from St James’ Park with a 3-0 victory after two goals from Neal Maupay and one from Aaron Connolly. Newcastle haven’t beaten Brighton in their last seven meetings with their last victory coming in the Championship in February 2017. The clubs have met each other on twenty seven occasions, eleven victories for Brighton, nine for Newcastle and seven draws.
Brighton are favourites and can be backed at 4/6 with 10Bet to win
A 0-0 bore draw has been set at 7-1 with Betway
Neal Maupay is 6/4 with 10Bet to score anytime
We expect Newcastle’s aim to be to return from the south coast with at least one point. There won’t be many goals and we think Brighton will just edge it.
Both teams will be looking to take three points when Graham Potter’s Brighton & Hove Albion in 16th take on Steve Bruce’s Newcastle United in 17th. A draw and a point could be useful in the final standings, but at this stage of the season, wins are what matter in the fight to stave off relegation. The Premier League match takes place on March 20th and the live action at the American Express Community Stadium kicks off at 20:00 local time.
