Chelsea vs Brighton – Premier League : This Tuesday afternoon, Chelsea and Brighton face off in Stamford Bridge, on a match of the Premier League’s 20th round.
Chelsea is in the 3rd position of the Premier League with 39 points conquered, having a record of 12 wins, 3 draws and 4 losses.
So far, the Blues have scored 32 goals and have conceded 14, which results on an average of 2.4 goals per match.
This season, the home advantage hasn’t been so decisive when compared to other years, since Chelsea even has more points away from home than in Stamford Bridge.
The team was coming off 3 consecutive wins, but on the last round, they travelled to Everton where they got a 0-0 draw, on a match they should have won, due to how superior they were on the field.
Brighton occupies the 12th place on the league table with 21 points conquered, thanks to 5 wins, 6 draws and 8 losses.
On the 19 rounds already played, the Seagulls have scored 15 goals and have conceded 23, which results on an average of 2 goals per match.
Brighton, on their away matches, have only gotten half the points they obtained on their home matches.
After a streak of 7 matches without winning, the team led by Chris Hughton hosted and have beaten Watford 1-0 on their last match.
Chelsea vs Brighton – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Antonio Conte’s team should get the 3 points with more or less difficulty.
Brighton is a team that closes itself too much, making their opponents’ attacking lives hard, because only 1 team was able to score more than 2 goals against them.
Another important data is the fact that Brighton only managed to score in 3 out of the 10 matches they played away from home this season.
Therefore, I believe on a win for the Blues, probably a low-scoring one, but they should be safe when it comes to goals conceded, since they are facing the 2nd worst attack of the competition in the condition of visitors.
