Brighton and Manchester City clash at the Amex Stadium this Thursday night. The hosts are safe in the middle of the standings, while Man City chases the title. Due to their respective playstyles, many expect to see an interesting and efficient game. Over the next few lines, see if we think the same.

Before Betting on Brighton vs. Manchester City

Brighton is in very bad shape, having won just twice in the past ten events. One win was in the EPL over Nottingham, 1-0, and the other in the Europa League vs. Roma, 1-0, but that wasn’t enough to cover a 0-4 deficit from the opening leg. 

Right now, they are on a four-game cold streak, which has seen them lose twice and record a pair of ties. In two of those events, the Seagulls haven’t netted a single goal (five times in the latest ten appearances), and that’s a sign of a crisis in their attack.

On the other hand, the Citizens have recovered from a loss in the Champions League and an exit in the quarterfinals. The win over Chelsea, 1-0, wasn’t impressive, yet the job is done, and the champs are in the FA Cup finals. 

There were a lot of problems in the backline, and it’s a miracle that Chelsea’s strikers (primarily Jackson) didn’t score. This meeting was the first following five in a row in which the Citizens finally kept the net intact. To be honest, their defense is the biggest problem since the campaign kicked off, and Guardiola needs to tighten it up before the crucial part of the title battle.
