Reasons for Brighton Hove Albion vs Newcastle United Tip

Brighton and Newcastle had fierce battles during the previous season when they were fighting for the promotion to the English Premier League. The Seagulls and Magpies are going to play the only match scheduled for Sunday, and this is why we are going to make a preview of it. The venue of it is Amex Stadium, and the referee is going to be the experience 46-year-old Andre Marriner.

Brighton Hove Albion preview

The Seagulls had a solid period until two weeks ago. After 2 wins and one draw, they slowed down and recorded 2 straight defeats. The most recent came in the English Football League Cup against Bournemouth away from home with a minimal result 1-0. We have to admit that Brighton Hove Albion was dominating throughout the most of the match but in the end, they could not score. This is going to be a critical game for them because they are currently at the 16th place, near the danger zone. Steve Sidwell and Isaiah Brown are doubtful for this match, while Beram Kayal and Sam Baldock are ineligible.

Newcastle United preview

After a devastating start of the season and 3 consecutive losses, Rafa Benitez found the perfect formula for Newcastle. They posted 3 straight wins in which they only allowed one goal. The trademark of the Spanish manager is tough unbreakable defense, and so far he did a good job. The Magpies conceded only 4 goals, and from game to game, it seems that they are growing. The fantastic results catapulted Newcastle United all the way to the fourth place in the standings. The key figure for the victories was Jamaal Lascelles, who scored the winning goals twice in a row. It is going to be the third game for the Newcastle away from St. James Park, and they have an even record, one win and defeat a piece with the same result 1-0. Rafa Benitez is unable to count on Aleksandar Mitrovic and Paul Dummett.

Brighton and Hove Albion vs Newcastle Head to Head

In the prior campaign when they were encountering in the Championship, Newcastle was more successful. Magpies recorded both victories, at home 2-0, and away 1-2.

Rafa Benitez has a perfect score with Chris Hughton, 3 wins in 3 meetings.

Overall in history, the two sides met only 4 times and they have two wins each. The goal difference is also even, with 4 goals scored from both teams.

Brighton Hove Albion vs Newcastle United Prediction and Betting Tips

We have seen the power of Rafa Benitez’s defense, In the encounters against the opponents with the similar strength. Just because of that we are predicting under 2.5 goals in this event. Brighton has problems with the attack, and on the other hand, Newcastle is defending during the whole match.

The first thing which crosses our mind regarding the second bet would be a draw at the half-time. Neither of the team wants to concede an early goal, and this is why we believe that a goalless first 45 minutes is the most reasonable suggestion.
