On Saturday 14 August, two other teams will play in the new season of the English Premier League Championship: Burnley vs Brighton. The teams will meet at the Turf Moor stadium in Burnley as part of the program of the 1st round of the 2021/22 season of the English Premier League Championship. The game will start at 17:00 Moscow time.
On this occasion, the two teams for the upcoming match are from the middle and elite divisions. Nevertheless, the likely outcome of the upcoming match is interesting as it marks the beginning of the new season. We, therefore, offer our prediction for the Burnley vs Brighton match in hope that it will be useful to bettors.
In the last EPL Championship, Sean Deich’s wards played far from brilliant. The team spent the entire tournament at the bottom of the standings and only thanks to a powerful finishing spurt were the players able to avoid participating in the playoffs for elimination. At the end of the Championship, Burnley’s team took 17th place with 39 points. It is quite understandable that, in the new season, Sean Deich’s charges will try to play more efficiently.
Graham Potter’s team has continued to play in the elite division for the past four years. However, since the team won the right to play in the Premier League, Brighton cannot boast of high achievements. The team is in the lower part of the standings. So, last season, Potter’s wards finished the Championship in a modest 16th place, having 41 points.
Until now, the teams of Burnley and Brighton have met each other in the Championships and national cups 30 times. At the moment, parity remains between the teams in terms of the number of victories. Each team won 8 matches, while a draw was recorded in 14 games.
No matter how the first game of the season develops for the teams, the match is going to be interesting. In such a situation, it will be difficult to give the victory to any team. However, our prediction for the Burnley – Brighton match is leaning towards the victory of the first team.
Probable result – the victory of Burnley.
