Brighton hosts Tottenham in round 16 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Wednesday, March 16th at Amex Stadium (Brighton)
Brighton is going through difficult times. In the last round, the team lost to Liverpool at home (0-2). It was the fifth defeat in a row for the Seagulls. During this period, they scored only one goal and conceded 11 times. Despite a streak of failures, the club is doing well in the standings. It has 33 points, and this is enough to be in the 13th position. The gap from the relegation zone remains more than impressive (11 points). Brighton’s home statistics are very mediocre: three victories, five draws, and six defeats with a goal difference of 10-18. The Seagulls earned 14 points in 14 home games. They have obvious problems with production, and this is indicated by 26 goals scored in 28 matches. The defensive indicators were quite good until the last five rounds, but Brighton has 34 goals in its liabilities.

Tottenham faced Manchester United in the last round. The Spurs looked pretty good but lost with a score of 3-2. Thus, they ended a streak of two consecutive victories. Antonio Conte’s men are still striving to get into the Champions League. But it does not look like a simple task. Tottenham has 45 points, and this is enough to be in 8th place in the standings. The gap to the top four is six points. In the previous four away games, the Lilywhites gained two victories and suffered two defeats. Overall away statistics look mediocre: six victories, two draws, and six defeats with a goal difference of 19-20. Exactly half of the away matches ended with Over 2.5 goals scored.
The teams have not yet crossed in the current Premier League draw, but they played a match in the Cup, and Tottenham won 3-1 at home. In the previous season, Brighton beat the Spurs at home in the Premier League (1-0). It’s hard to say what to expect from the upcoming match. Brighton is out of shape, although it remains a quite unyielding team. Tottenham is in good condition, but definitely not in the best mood after losing to Manchester United. I do not rule out that the teams will try to make up for their recent failures in this game. However, the Londoners will certainly be closer to victory due to the higher class.
