Arsenal vs Brighton / Premier League – The penultimate match of the penultimate round of the Premier League is important for both teams, but because of different reasons. Arsenal hopes to reach the fourth place and qualify for the Champions League, despite losing three league matches in a row. Brighton hovers right above the drop zone, having four points more than teams in it. The two teams drew 1-1 their match played in the first part of the season.
Arsenal vs Brighton begins 05.05.2019 at 17:30 CET
Arsenal has seriously lowered its chance to reach the Champions League after three-game losing streak in the league. No one expected such a downfall, but it simply happened and the Gunners lost to Crystal Palace, Wolverhampton and Leicester in this order. They played very weakly, especially in defence and they received goals very easily. They played a bit better on Thursday in the 1st leg of the Europa League semi-finals, when they won Valencia 3-1. They received the first goal, but they played well later in the match and now they have open path towards the finals. Maitland-Niles is suspended, while Koscielny is questionable.
Probable lineups Arsenal: Leno – Mustafi, Sokratis, Monreal – Jenkinson, Torreira, G. Xhaka, Kolasinac – Ozil – Aubameyang, Lacazette
Brighton will know before the match what is its situation, since Cardiff will finish its match earlier and if the Welsh lose Brighton is safe. Otherwise, they need to win a point, although it is hard to expect to do so in such difficult away match. They had much better chances in the previous period but they haven’t won anyone in 10 previous matches. It is important that they drew two times in previous three rounds, including home draw with Newcastle 1-1 the last round. We expect that Bissoum and March return to the starting line-up, while Propper is still out of action.
Probable lineups Brighton: Ryan – Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo – P. Gros, Bissouma, Stephens, March – Murray, Andone
Arsenal vs Brighton PICK
The guest might not need points at all but if they do, it is hard to expect to win them here. Arsenal is not exactly brilliant in the Premier Leauge, but it had dropped too many points and now will attack from the first minute to win them, which is the most probable outcome of this match.
Pick: Asian handicap -1 Arsenal
Odds: 1.68 at bethard (down to 1.59 can be played)
