Not only the race to win the title in the English Premier League is extremely exciting, but also the fight for relegation. Between 13th and 18th place the difference is just five points. Before the top English league will take a break for the FA Cup next weekend, Matchday 26 will be on the program this weekend. This leads to a relegation crash between Brighton and Burnley!
Today’s Betting Prediction Brighton vs. Burnley
The hosts from Brighton currently lead the lower third of the table and rank 27th with 13 points in the table. Burnley’s strong form left the relegation zone in recent weeks and is now in 17th place, even though the visitors have been more successful in recent weeks, Brighton are the clear favorites at home. For a home win in the game between Brighton and Burnley odds of just over 2.00 are offered! The start of the game at the AMEX Stadium is on the early Saturday evening at 18:30.
Brighton – Statistics & Current Form
The “Seagulls” – head gulls – of head coach Chris Hughton are a bit in free fall. Only one of the last ten Premier League games could win Brighton & Hove Albion. Overall, there were only six counters during this period. The lead on the saving shore melts on and on. The deciding factor for these statistics, however, is undoubtedly the weak outlook with only two wins in 13 games. At home in the AMEX Stadium, the record reads five wins, four draws and three defeats even positive. Brighton was only beaten by teams from the top six home defeats (Tottenham, Chelsea, Liverpool). The AMEX Stadium can be described as a fortress. Brighton has lost just seven out of 31 home games since rising to the Premier League. Given these statistics, Brighton and Burnley predict a home win victory.
Nevertheless, there is no value to be seen in the currently offered betting odds. Brighton has not yet scored a Premier League goal against Burnley, has not won any of the recent five league games (two draws and three defeats) and had to face intense 120 minutes in the FA Cup second-leg tie West Bromwich Albion on Wednesday evening to fix the progress to be able to. This “extra work” was certainly not conducive to the immensely important duel with Burnley. Once again, the now 35-year-old veteran Glenn Murray had to get the coal out of the fire. The striker marked after his substitution both goals in extra time. With ten league goals, he is also the hope in the league. However, Murray has not met in the last five home games at AMEX Stadium.
Expected formation of Brighton:
Ryan – Bong, Duffy, Dunk, Montoya – Stephens, Pröpper – Locadia, Big, March – Murray

Burnley – Statistics & Current Form
In fast-moving football, there are only a few clubs that are not driven by pure actionism. The wine reds – The Clarets – of Burnley FC may well consider themselves the exception. Sean Dyche led Burnley sensationally to Europe last season. In the fall of 2018, however, things did not go according to plan. In addition to the early exit in the Europa League, the Dyche-Elf also slipped in the league from one setback to the next. The first round ended with a meager twelve points. Despite this weak record, the long-term coach – since 2012 in office – was not up for discussion. He continued to enjoy full confidence and this continuity should also pay off.
After only six games in the second half, the Burnley FC has already twelve counters on the credit side and thus can double the point yield in the twinkling of an eye. In the second half Burnley is still without defeat. After three wins in a row, the Dyche-Elf drew in the recent three games. Only Manchester United have a long run of undefeated matches (eight) under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It was Burnley against the Red Devils at Old Trafford shortly before the victory; only in the final seconds was a seemingly comfortable 2-0 lead but still playful. Despite a weak 2-4-7 away record, the Red Devils game has shown that Burnley can not be called a welcome guest in the current constitution.
The recent successes have ensured that Burnley can act again with a broad chest. In the first round, the team often sold below value. Qualitatively, Burnley is by no means weaker than Brighton & Hove Albion. Despite the recent strong performances Sean Dyche does not want to look at the competition, but continues to demand from his team this commitment and passion. The strong performances and self-confidence in the game between Brighton and Burnley, the high odds of over 4.00 on the away win but a little surprising!
Expected list of Burnley:
Heaton – Taylor, Mee, Tarkowski, Bardsley – McNeil, Cork, Westwood, Hendrick – Wood, Barnes
Last Games by Burnley:
- 02.02.2019 – Burnley Vs. Southampton 1: 1 (Premier League)
- 29.01.2019 – Manchester United Vs. Burnley 2: 2 (Premier League)
- 26.01.2019 – Manchester City Vs. Burnley 5: 0 (FA Cup)
- 19.01.2019 – Watford Vs. Burnley 0: 0 (Premier League)
- 12.01.2019 – Burnley Vs. Fulham 2: 1 (Premier League)
