Brighton vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 29 December 2020
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Amex Stadium.
The Seagulls seem to be one of the worst teams in the whole competition at the moment. They are already placed 16th in the table, and have a total of just two wins all through this campaign.
They are also on a long winless drought at home. In fact, in the last six-month period, their only such win had come in the EFL Cup, against a team from the lower division.
Meanwhile, the Gunners used to be on a worrying run – so much so that fans were fearing a relegation battle towards the end of the season. However, they delivered a convincing win in their latest match-up, against one of the best teams in the league.
And now, the team is hopeful of making up for some of their dropped points in the coming days, especially against the likes of Graham Potter’s men – who are counted amongst the worst in the competition.
As such, expect Arsenal to have the edge this Tuesday. Still, note that the Seagulls have had the better h2h record in recent games, and Mikel Arteta’s men have not been a good defensive side as well this whole season.
For the reasons, expect goals to come from both teams at the Amex Stadium.
Brighton vs Arsenal: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Potter’s men are on a two-match winning run.
- They have scored two or more goals in both these games.
- They are also on an unbeaten run since 2017.
- Since 2013, barring one fixture, 100% of match-ups have had goals from both teams.
- 100% of games at this stadium in the past decade have had goals from both teams, and the hosts have scored twice or more in all but one fixture.
Brighton vs Arsenal: Prediction
The Seagulls were held to a 2-2 draw the last match-day on the road, by West Ham. In the meantime, the Gunners posted a 3-1 win at home the past game week, against Chelsea.
Going on, Potter’s men have had a total of one win from their previous 14 games, and just three from their past 25 appearances at home.
They have also been a contender for the 15th to 17th spots in the table in the last three seasons, while their counterparts have been one of the absolute best teams in the competition since time immemorial.
Moreover, Arteta’s men are high on confidence after their thumping win against the Blues, and they will absolutely give their best on the pitch to make the most of this comparatively easier fixture. Likely, expect Arsenal to be the better team this Tuesday.
However, note that the Seagulls have a good h2h record against this rival in the past three years, and they have also consistently been a good offensive side in such fixtures. Finally, the Gunners have not kept a single clean sheet in their preceding nine straight games as well.
Likely, expect the BTTS wager to bring good returns at the Amex.
