Brighton vs Huddersfield Prediction & Betting tips
Huddersfield Town won unexpectedly from Wolverhampton on Tuesday-evening. The team of Jan Siewert will visit Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon, which unjustly went down in the away game with Leicester City.
Brighton & Hove Albion:
Chris Hughton should slowly start to worry about Brighton & Hove Albion again. The club from the coastal town is in sixteenth place and feels the hot breath of both Cardiff City and Southampton in the neck. Brighton has played a game less than its competitors, but the chance that The Seagulls will catch points in those extra game points is not that big. At Brighton they still have a make-up game at Chelsea credit but in this form The Seagulls will not book any result at Stamford Bridge. The form of Brighton & Hove Albion in 2019 is dramatic: The Seagulls did not win a single duel this calendar year and with that it is the only English professional club without a profit in 2019.
The pressure increases at Brighton, which went down 2-1 at Leicester City on Tuesday-evening. Hughton’s men played good football at times, but The Seagulls bought little afterwards. Both Leicester City and Brighton shot three times between the posts. The Foxes turned out to be a lot more efficient, because on behalf of Brighton, only Davy Pröpper was very accurate. It is not really that bad in the last weeks for The Seagulls, because even at Leicester City Brighton had at least earned one point. The coastal inhabitants are fortunate not on their side this year, but perhaps that Brighton can turn around if Huddersfield Town is the opponent in the Amex Stadium.
Huddersfield Town manager Jan Siewert said from day one that the canvas has not yet fallen for The Terriers. In recent weeks, the German has been declared crazy for several times. Since Tuesday evening Siewert suddenly has the right to speak again, because Huddersfield Town took three important points on Tuesday. Yet Siewert will also realize that the chance is minimal that Huddersfield Town can still maintain itself. The Terriers do not even have fifteen points, while all teams above the line already have more than twenty points. Moreover, Huddersfield Town managed to win again this week for the first time in thirteen games and of course such statistics do not give much confidence.
The victory that Huddersfield Town booked at Wolverhampton was entirely justified. The Terriers created a lot of chances against the Wolves, but had to wait until the extra time for a goal. It was Steve Mounié who gave Huddersfield Town an important victory in the last two minutes of the game. Against Wolverhampton, the striker made his second goal of the season and that shows once again where the problem lies at Huddersfield Town; the team of Siewert scores extremely difficult. A striking fact is that Huddersfield Town picked up eleven of the fourteen points this season against promoted teams. That is not a good sign for The Terriers, because Huddersfield Town is no longer playing against a PhD student at the end of the competition.
