Huddersfield Town vs Brighton & Hove Albion Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

David Wagner saw his Huddersfield team put together an impressive performance and register a 2-0 win over Wolves during the weekend. Aaron Mooy’s sixth-minute goal certainly helped in easing the nerves for the relegation-threatened outfit and his excellent free-kick provided a safe platform for the visitors. Brighton were held to a 1-1 draw by Leicester City at home. A set-piece once again helped Brighton come up with the first goal, which came from Glen Murray. However, Leicester came back with a 79th-minute penalty from Jamie Vardy even with the team having just 10 men on the pitch.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Huddersfield did extremely well in the recent game against Wolves and this may provide a great motivation for the team going into this upcoming match. Huddersfield have an opportunity to pull 11 points clear off the drop and they have home advantage on their side. Brighton’s primary plan has been to rely on Murray for the goals and defend with numbers. It is possible to expect yet another tactical brilliance from Huddersfield after their showing against Wolves. I would go with a win for the home team.

The games involving Huddersfield have witnessed an average of 8.5 corners per match. Brighton have been heavily dependent on corners as a means of goals, but the Seagulls have been averaging around 9.5 corners per match. Both teams do not get a lot of shots at goal and my pick would be to back under 10 corners in this match.

Huddersfield Town win – 11/8

Huddersfield Town Preview

Huddersfield will be buoyant after the impressive win over Wolves. It was not a smash-and-grab victory. Instead, the tactical plan from David Wagner was executed to perfection from Huddersfield players, who were also able to take their chances. This victory can be a platform for Huddersfield to build on. Since the club has a couple of games against the likes of Newcastle and Southampton coming up, Wagner will be delighted with the timing of this result. Huddersfield scored two goals for the first time in a league match since February, and the weak offence still gives them plenty to ponder about ahead of the January transfer window.

Huddersfield Town Team News

Chris Lowe (shoulder) is the only injury concern for Huddersfield.

Brighton & Hove Albion Preview

Brighton have been a defensively solid outfit over the course of the campaign. However, the lack of goals at the other end of the pitch has contributed to the Seagulls being unable to make a push for the top 10 places. Hughton will be more pleased about his team staying almost 10 points clear of the bottom three. The heavy dependence on Glen Murray does make matters difficult for Brighton, who do have the advantage of being devastating from set pieces this season. Murray is the top scorer at the club with seven league goals.

Brighton & Hove Albion Team News

Glen Murray (thigh), David Button (knee), Matthew Ryan (ankle), Alireza Jahanbakhsh (hamstring), and Soufyan Ahannach (leg) are unavailable due to injuries. Meanwhile, Dale Stephens is suspended from the match.
