West Ham – Brighton : Preview & Prediction
West Ham and Brighton & Hove Albion meet at Olympic Stadium in a match for the 21st round of the Barclays Premier League. Brighton & Hove Albion won at home for (1-0) the last time they faced each other in this edition of the league on 10-05-2018. The record of recent direct clashes favors the visiting team, which in the last 3 matches has won 3. Particular attention is needed for the home / away condition, as both teams present significantly different results in their home and away games.
The home team is currently in 11th place with 27 points, after 8 wins, 3 draws and 9 losses. In the penultimate match, he won away to Southampton by (1-2). In the last match, he lost out to Burnley by (2-0). This is a team that curiously shows more positive results than at home, since in the last 30 matches it has 7 wins, 4 draws and 4 defeats as a visitor, with 24 goals scored and 20 conceded, against 7 wins, 2 draws and 6 defeats at home with 27 goals scored and 20 conceded. In the last 10 home games for the championship, West Ham has 4 wins, 1 draw and 5 losses, having won 13 points out of 30. Defensive solidity has not been his strong point, having conceded goals in 8 of the last 10 games but his attack has scored regularly as he has scored goals in 7 of the last 10 matches in this competition. In 20 games in this competition, he suffered the first goal 10 times and only got 2 turns on the scoreboard. In the last 10 home games in this competition there are 2 highlights: he scored 5 of his 14 goals in minutes (61′-75 ‘); suffered six of his 16 goals in minutes (76’-90 ‘).
West Ham is a club that has won two Premier League titles, plus three FA Cup titles, one English Super Cup title and two English League Cup runners-up. In the current season, the team has been making an irregular campaign within the national championship, having won 27 of 60 points so far, thus being in the middle of the table, relatively distant from the relegation zone. In the last five games that West Ham played as principal, counting more than one competition, in all they were scored more than 1.5 goals and in four were scored more than 2.5 goals. I believe that in this match West Ham, by playing at home, can score goals, and so will make one more a busy game.
