Brighton vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: 12 March 2022, Saturday
Kick-off at 12:30 UK / 13:30 CET
Venue: The American Express Community Stadium (Falmer).
Liverpool survived a stern West Ham United challenge last weekend at Anfield when Sadio Mane’s first-half goal proved to be the difference-maker between the two teams.
The Reds are still only six points below Manchester City atop the Premier League standings with one game in hand on the Citizens, meaning the title race is wide open with as many as ten matches left to play until the end of the season.
Jurgen Klopp’s men were also in action in mid-week when they lost 0-1 at home to Italian holders Inter Milan in the second leg of the last 16 round in UEFA Champions League.
While the team showed a subpar performance against the ten-man Italians on the occasion, Liverpool still advanced to the quarterfinal thanks to a 0-2 victory in the first leg on Italian soil.
Klopp’s troops will be looking to continue their winning streak in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon when they travel to The AMEX to take on struggling Brighton un the first match of Gameweek 29.
Brighton fell to the 13th position in the league ladder after losing four consecutive league outings.
The latest failure came seven days ago when they conceded two early goals in a 2-1 loss at Newcastle United.
Graham Potter’s men have scored only one goal in the last four league affairs, conceding at least two in each of them in the process.
Brighton vs Liverpool Head-to-head
- Brighton shockingly held Liverpool to a 2-2 draw when the two teams locked horns in the first half of the season at Anfield.
- Liverpool are winless in the last three H2H affairs against the Seagulls.
- Both teams scored in four of the last five head to head matches.
Brighton vs Liverpool Prediction
We believe the time has finally come for Liverpool to improve their dismal record in the recent head to head games against Brighton. The visitors, who generally possess much more quality and talent in their ranks, will enter this tie as big form favorites.
We would be very surprised to see any other scenario but a comprehensive victory for the visitors. You can back the Reds to win by two or more goals difference at the odds of 2.30.
