Game Brighton vs Tottenham begins 05.10.2019 at 13:30 CET
Brighton is in crisis although it didn't seem that something like that will happen to them after they won Watford by 3-0 in the first round. That is practically all with which they can be pleased as they drew three more matches after that out of which two at home. The rivals were weaker teams, while Brighton was defeated three times without being able to score a goal. However, two opponents were very strong and they lost away Manchester City 4-0 and were defeated by Chelsea 2-0 in London in the previous round. They played well in the first half but received two goals in the second half. They were also eliminated from the League Cup after home defeat by Aston Villa. Brighton has a fair deal of problems with injuries and we don’t expect new changes in starting line-up.
Probable lineups Brighton: Ryan – Webster, Dunk, Burn – Montoya, Mooy, Stephens, Bissouma, Alzate – P. Gros – Maupay
Tottenham has quite a few problems this season and all of them are exuberated in the Champions League. In the first round they met Olympiacos away and had a lead of two goals but they won just one point in the end, while on Tuesday they suffered a true debacle. They faced Bayern and lost by even 7-2, which is the heaviest home defeat of English clubs in European competitions. The result tells volumes how they played although there a very strong team was on the pitch. Tottenham oscillate in the Premier League and in the last round they defeated Southampton 2-1 having a player less after just half an hour. Therefore, Aurier cannot play now and D. Sanchez has to go at the right flank.
Probable lineups Tottenham: Lloris – D. Sanchez, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Rose – Sissoko, Wings, Ndombele – Eriksen – Son, H. Kane
Betting Pick: Brighton vs Tottenham
Shaken Tottenham should be rather vulnerable although they are still favourites to win. Brighton also plays weakly but will try to exploit the guests’ weaknesses and try to cause some harm. That is why we forecast a match with plenty of goals.
Pick: Over 2.5 goals
Odds: 1.80 at betvictor (down to 1.70 can be played)
