Can Brentford end a seven-match winless run in the Premier League?
2852

Brentford have played well in recent weeks but haven’t picked up the points warranting their good performances. The team is winless in seven straight Premier League matches.

Will our AI-powered score predictor back the Bees for a victory over Brighton?

The Bees are coming off a 1-1 draw at home to Manchester United. A second-half extra-time goal gave Brentford a share of the spoils. It was the least the bees deserved, having dominated the match.

Brighton are coming off a defeat to first-place Liverpool. The Seagulls fell 2-1, having led early in the match. The loss was further proof of the inconsistent performances Brighton have had this season.

Manager Roberto De Zerbi has even questioned the club’s hierarchy, and its determination to improve. It could lead the Italian manager to leave in the summer.

Brighton are ninth in the standings but going backwards. They lost two of their last three games. The team conceded five times and scored just twice in those three games.

Brentford are dangerously close to the relegation zone. They are just five points above the bottom three, with eight games left to play.

The Seagulls won the reverse fixture 2-1 at the Amex in December. Brentford’s Bryan Mbeumo opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 27 minutes.

Pascal Gross levelled the score four minutes later, however. Jack Hinshelwood put Brighton ahead on 52 minutes for the win.

Brighton edged Brentford in the last six head-to-head meetings with 3W-1D-2L. Games aren’t typically high scoring between these clubs, with Brighton tallying nine goals to Brentford’s seven.

Brentford drew their last two games at the GTech Stadium. Seventeen of their 27 points this season came at home.

Brighton lost four of their last five away matches. Just 15 of Brighton’s 42 points have come on the road this season.

Yoanne Wisse and Mbeumo lead Brentford in goal scoring with seven goals apiece. Ivan Toney, who missed the first half of the season due to a suspension, has scored four goals since returning.

Brighton’s Joao Pedro leads the team in goals with eight. Pedro missed Brighton’s last six matches with a leg injury. He could return for the trip to Brentford. Without the forward, the Seagulls have struggled to score.

Brighton’s away record isn’t great, and they should trip up once more on the road on Wednesday at Brentford.

Our algorithm predicts a Brentford 2-1 win against Brighton. The Bees should get a very important win to move further away from the relegation zone.
