Brighton vs Manchester Utd Prediction & Betting tips
The duel between Brighton & Hove Albion and Manchester United takes place for the second time in just four days. It was only on Saturday that the Red Devils won a very strange match on the English south coast with 3: 2, although the event had already been whistled at 2: 2. Then the VAR stepped in and awarded United a penalty, which Fernandes converted in the tenth minute of stoppage time.
Now the cards in the round of 16 of the EFL Cup will be reshuffled, although the odds of the bookmakers speak for the Red Devils on Wednesday evening at Brighton against Manchester United, as the odds comparison of the betting base shows.
However, the men of Graham Potter already fought honestly on Saturday against the big favorite, who barely missed the complete false start. The Red Devils are certainly not over the mountain yet, especially since they only played three competitive games after the short break.
Nevertheless, it is difficult to place a tip on the outcome of the game at Brighton against Manchester United. With regard to the Saturday game, the bet on “Both teams to meet: Yes” is a little more appropriate.
In 1983 Brighton & Hove Albion was once in the final of the FA Cup. In the EFL Cup, however, the Seagulls have always ended up in the round of 16 at the latest (last time in the 2014/15 season).
This second most important English cup competition for club teams is actually such a great opportunity for small clubs like Albion to play their way into the Europa League by winning overall.
Especially the supposedly big players in the Premier League usually only send their B-Elf to the EFL Cup because of the tight schedule, which is why this competition is also disrespectfully referred to as the “Mickey Mouse Cup”.
It is not to be assumed that the selection of Graham Potter will only deal with the second garrison of the Red Devils. However, Albion already showed on Saturday that they can keep up with Manchester United.
Brighton finally led 1-0 in a close match and after the 2-1 win they even reached the not undeserved 2-2 equalizer in stoppage time. But then the strange scenes occurred that led to the penalty kick after the final whistle.
Nevertheless, this game shows that at Brighton against Manchester United, a tip that the Seagulls can keep the game open for as long as possible and ultimately maybe even fight a draw with a penalty shoot-out into the last 16 is by no means pure speculation. After three competitive games in a row with 9-0 goals, the Potter-Elf finally presented themselves as serious opponents in the 2-3 defeat.
Manchester United almost slipped past the complete false start in the Premier League with the happy 3-2 away win at Brighton & Hove Albion. The Red Devils surprisingly lost 3-1 at home against Crystal Palace on the first day of the match.
If a 2-2 on the English south coast had been added, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side would have only one of six possible points against two teams that normally do not get beyond the lower half of the table. Even this small yield is the first setback.
After all, the English champion has hardly been able to afford any slip-ups in recent years. Especially not against the supposedly small ones in the Premier League. So if United wants to close the big gap to city rivals City and arch rivals Liverpool, not too much should be left behind in the coming weeks.
The focus of the Red Devils in this English week should clearly be on Sunday. A match in which there has to be another three in the league against a strong opponent.
It is quite conceivable that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not call one or the other player into the starting line-up with regard to Spurs’ guest appearance. This is exactly what is also noticeable in the odds at Brighton against Manchester United.
The English record champions are the clear favorites in this match, especially since the last four league games against Brighton were all won. In fact, the end of the EFL Cup should not matter to the Champions League participant in view of a full schedule if the home three against the Lilywhites is brought on Sunday.
