Brighton & Hove Albion vs Newcastle United Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

The top two in the Championship table do battle Tuesday evening (20:45) in a huge game.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

These two have only ever met once before in Football League history (they have met twice in the FA Cup) and this came back on August 27th. Newcastle came out on top that day 2-0 thanks to goals from James Lascelles and Jonjo Shelvey.

The Seagulls impressed last time out as they ran out comfortable 3-0 victors over Reading. Sam Baldock opened the scoring with his third in two games while Jamie Murphy and Anthony Knockaert also got among the goals for the South Coast side.

Newcastle fought back from 2-0 down in 21 minutes against Bristol City to rescue a 2-2 draw thanks to goals from Korey Smith (own goal) and Ciaran Clark. The Magpies had a few chances to win the game but could not convert.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is three goals in two for Sam Baldock while in home fixtures it is three from four. He looks over-priced to get among the goals here and can be backed in the first scorer market.  He also looks worth an interest in the to score two or more goals market at high prices.

Brighton Preview

A run of 11 points from the last five games means that it is Brighton who are back top of the Championship table. They sit one point above Newcastle and six ahead of Huddersfield.

The Seagulls have won seven of their last eight at home in the league and you have to go back to September 10th for their last defeat in front of their own fans. A secret to this run has been defending shipping just five goals in their last 11 home games.

Four of the last six have gone over 2.5 goals while at home this is six of the last ten. They have scored in the first thirty minutes in six of their previous league fixtures at the Amex. They would though just be fifth if the table was decided on results of games after the first 45 minutes.

Newcastle Preview

It is six games unbeaten for Newcastle but three draws mean they have allowed Brighton to take over from them at the top. They also near to look over their shoulder at Huddersfield who are five points behind them in third place.

The Magpies have a league-best away record and have just three league defeats on the road this season. Two of these though have come in recent months against Blackburn and Nottingham Forest while they drew at Norwich last time out.

Five of their last nine away fixtures have seen both teams score and the same number have gone over 2.5 goals. The North-Eastern side have scored at least two on seven of their ten league road visits. None of their last eight games have been nil-nil at half-time.
