Brighton vs Aston Villa Match Preview
Aston Villa have proven themselves a tough side to beat but still saw their three-match winless streak extended in a 3-2 loss at Arsenal, as Calum Chambers and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both found the net in the final ten minutes. They now hope for more as they travel to Falmer for their League Cup clash on Wednesday evening, looking for a confidence booster.
Villans made their way to the 3rd Round with a great 1-6 win at Crewe Alexandra but also saw a 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace and a goalless draw against West Ham since, which will feel more worrying. They have looked better in the final third over the weekend and Dean Smith will want to build on the positives.
Brighton had seen a convincing 4-0 loss at Manchester City ahead of the International break and returned to the Premier League with draws against Burnley (1-1) and Newcastle – as they drop down the table after a rather solid start of the new campaign. They now need to find a cure for their goalscoring woes quickly and the test will surely be a serious one at the American Express Community Stadium.
Seagulls are still looking for a home win this term and this could feel like pressure mounting, as they keep conceding goals on the regular. Aston Villa surely looks like a good opportunity to break the unwanted streak but the visitors will be pumped in a similar search on the day.
We will now stick our necks out for the match to end in a Draw priced at 5/2 with William Hill, which has caught the eye of many as a lively longshot as both sides struggle to turn clashes their way early in the new campaign.
We should be in for a narrow contest with rather high stakes at this point, as both sides’ goalscoring records point towards the same conclusion. We’re thus also going for few goals and Under 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at a rather enticing 9/10 with bet365.
