On Tuesday there will be a match on Matchday 31 between Brighton & Hove Albion and Cardiff City. Both teams are in the middle of the relegation battle and therefore need an urgent victory. For Cardiff City it could be the endgame in the season, but are currently missing 5 points on the tables 17th – and this is – exactly Brighton & Hove Albion. This could turn away with a victory to 8 points and this would probably be like a preliminary decision.
Will Brighton & Hove Albion make the liberation?
The club from the port city of Brighton slipped in the last few weeks again fully into the relegation battle. Due to last 3 defeats in a row, they occupy the 17th place, and only has a lead of 5 points on the relegation place. The record under coach Chris Hughton is similar to read as the end of last season. The team currently has 9 wins, 6 draws and 17 defeats. Big weakness is the offensive department, which only scored 32 goals in 32 games. Also in the domestic AMEX Stadium are only 17 goals in 16 games on the account. They lost 5-0 to AFC Bournemouth on matchday one. In addition, Frenchman Anthony Knockaert picked up the red card, and is now missing in the important game against Cardiff City. With 8 scorer points this is one of the most reliable offensive forces of the Seagulls. With only 1.06 goals per home game, the team here could use any support, because even in the last 3 home games you could only score one goal. Recently, there were even two to zero defeats in a row.
In the form table of the last 8 games Brighton occupies only the 17th rank and can thus leave only the 3 relegation candidates behind. Only 7 points the team got from the 8 games. Last time there were 3 defeats in a row without own hits. At home AMEX Stadium, the team has been without a win for two games without a goal. In general, you could only score 5 goals in the last 8 games, which is the worst value this season.
Can Cardiff City take its last chance?
Cardiff City was promoted from the championship to the Premier League only last season. For all participants of the club was quickly clear that the stated goal may only be relegation. With a market value of € 97 million, the team is the least valuable squad in the league. Although it was possible to intensify here and there in the summer, in order to be able to keep up with the other teams, the Welsh are missing the means. Despite this fact, the team until then wacker and the possibility of a league whereabouts is still given. With a record of 8 wins, 4 draws and 21 defeats, they are currently ranked 18th and 5 points behind the saving shore. However, last week’s form does not speak too much for Cardiff City. Away you have been without a win since 3 league games, and with only 2 wins in 16 games you also know why. Only 9 goals scored the team in 16 away games – absolute negative record. The last victory is dated March 9 and was celebrated at home to West Ham United. In the remaining five games you will also meet Liverpool FC and Manchester United, which should fuel the importance of this game again.
As mentioned briefly above, Cardiff City is not in good shape at the moment and needs to find it as quickly as possible if they want to stay in the league. There were 3 defeats in the last race and only one goal was scored. The team only scored 6 points in the last 8 games and also occupies the 18th place in this table.
Mostly in the championship, the two teams met each other and can have a fairly balanced balance there. 3 wins stand for Brighton on paper, and 4 wins for Cardiff City. A total of 8 games ended in a draw. In the home statistics of Brighton is only 1 defeat on the slip, but only one win and a total of 5 draws. The goal difference is thus compensated and is 7: 7 goals. However, the final duel, which is also the first in the Premier League, could win Cardiff City 2-1.
