Brighton vs Sheffield Wednesday Match Preview

Brighton held Chelsea to a well-deserved 1-1 draw as Alireza Jahanbakhsh came off the bench and found a stunning overhead bicycle-kick equalizer on New Year’s Day and Graham Potter’s men managed to build on a solid performance against Bournemouth (2-0) seen last week.

Seagulls now host Sheffield Wednesday for their FA Cup clash and surely hope for more of the same at the American Express Community Stadium, where they prove themselves a tough nut to crack time and time again. With a tough schedule behind them, they still bagged just one win in five outings here and will now be desperate to pick it up.

Sheffield Wednesday will surely not be the same sort of a challenge, though, and they travel to Falmer with a disappointing three-match losing streak behind them – where they saw Stoke (3-2), Cardiff (1-2), and Hull (0-1) all snatch important points despite very narrow clashes along the way.

Owls have been scoring numbers of goals on the road and still promise an exciting challenge on the day as well, looking to build on a tally of 11 goals scored on their last five trips. They could need more now and we don’t really see them up to the task as Gary Monk tries to set up an upset at Premier League rivals.

We will thus back Brighton to make their way past Sheffield Wednesday in front of the home fans, going for a Home win at 3/4 with bet365 and hoping to see them outclass the troubled rivals in a thrilling contest looming on Saturday afternoon.

They should be forced into such a game and we thus hope to see goals, as we go for a high-scoring contest with Over 2.5 Goals FT at 31/40 with BetVictor. We have seen both sides enjoying some exciting games lately and we now hope for more of the same.
