Tip Reasoning

  • Brighton have eight draws in 16 league games.
  • Albion are winless in 12 games in all competitions and nine of those have been draws.
  • Brentford have two draws in their last three away games.
  • Three of Brighton’s last four draws have finished 1-1.

Little to separate Bees and Brighton

Brighton’s home game against Brentford has been selected as the late game in the Premier League on Boxing Day and we could be in for a tight affair at the Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls have drawn half of their 16 Premier League games and Brentford have started to pick up draws too, with two of their last three trips ending honours even.

Brighton are winless in 12 games across all competitions but they are still tough to beat, and this may well be a game where both sides have to settle for a point.

South coast stalemate on the cards

Brentford have seen a few games postponed due to Covid-19 recently but prior to the 2-0 EFL Cup defeat at home to Chelsea on Wednesday boss Thomas Frank revealed his squad was coronavirus free. At the time of writing, that remains the case and Brighton are in a good place too in that regard despite having a few of their own fixtures postponed.

As mentioned earlier, Albion are winless in 12 games in all competitions and nine of those games have been draws, including an EFL Cup defeat to Leicester that they lost on penalties. Brighton have also drawn three of their last five home games in the league, losing the other two.

Brentford have five draws in 16 games overall and two of those have come in their last three trips. These two teams are level on 20 points in the standings and look evenly matched, and given just how many draws these sides have played out recently this fixture does stand out as a candidate to finish all square come the final whistle.

Goals an issue for both sides

Brighton have scored just six goals in eight home games so far and have 14 in 16 games in total. Graeme Potter’s side have the third worst attack in the league, but they should at least be able to find a way through against a Brentford side who are conceding 1.5 goals per-game on their travels.

The Bees have been involved in some high scoring games of late but Brighton’s defence is fairly solid and they have only conceded 17 goals in the league. Three of the hosts’ last four draws have finished 1-1, and as such that is our correct score bet for the late game on Boxing Day.
