Brighton vs Cardiff Prediction & Betting tips
It is quite unusual, but while there is football in quarter-finals of the Champions League, there is also a match on the program in the Premier League. On Tuesday evening, Brighton & Hove Albion receives a visit from Cardiff City in-house. A degradation cracker.
Brighton & Hove Albion:
For both Brighton & Hove Albion and Cardiff City this is the competition in which it must take place. Brighton, which is seventeenth, has five points more than Cardiff City and in the event of a defeat against the doctoral candidate, the relegation battle in the Premier League becomes even more exciting. If Brighton wins or draws against Cardiff City, The Seagulls seem certain of another season of Premier League football, certainly because Brighton has played one game less than Cardiff City. In short: Brighton has everything in its own hands.
With four losses in a row, they currently have little faith at Brighton for a good result against Cardiff City. Certainly after last weekend’s game against AFC Bournemouth. In its own American Express Community Stadium, Brighton lost 0-5 to Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon and The Seagulls were perhaps playing their worst game at the highest level. Certainly in the second half Brighton was passed by on all sides and that was also partly to blame for Anthony Knockaert – the Frenchman made a backward foul in the 16-meter area of Bournemouth and was sent off completely red with red. The 0-5 defeat of Brighton, however, was not only the fault of Knockaert, as the entire selection of The Seagulls fell through the ice. It was the first time since 1973 that Brighton had lost five or more goals in a competition and the Seagulls clearly had to put right in front of their own audience on Tuesday evening.
For Cardiff City, the Brighton & Hove Albion duel is a do-or-die competition. If there is no winning in the English coastal town then the PhD student can forget about enforcement. With a win at Brighton the gap with The Seagulls is reduced to two points and then they can still hope for enforcement at Cardiff City. With Fulham and Crystal Palace, Cardiff City finally meets two opponents that can be won, although the formation of Neil Warnock also plays a home game against Liverpool and has to visit Manchester United in the final round.
Last weekend the game with Burnley was scheduled for Cardiff City. On Turf Moor, The Bluebirds lost 2-0 and afterwards, Warnock got angry about the referee corps. It is not the first time that seventy-year-old Warnock has publicly criticized the Premier League referees – he was sued by the FA last week – and it is not the first time that the Cardiff City manager had a right to speak. Maybe Cardiff City was entitled to a penalty kick against Burnley, but they didn’t get The Bluebirds and that is why Cardiff City is still the top candidate to relegate to the Championship together with Fulham and Huddersfield Town. Only a win over Brighton seems to be able to change that.
