The American Express Stadium in Falmer will host the next round of the English Championship. Brighton and Liverpool will compete in the APL. Teams have different season. And if the hosts can be happy with themselves, the guests need victories. Experts favor Jurgen Klopp’s team, but it’s hard to call the Reds the clear favorites. What should you know before the starting whistle?
Brighton won the previous match, being stronger than Middlesbrough in the FA Cup. Even earlier there was a victory in the EPL over Everton. The Gulls have had mixed results lately, as they continue to adapt to the work under the new coach Roberto De Dzerby. Before beating Liverpool, Brighton had lost three of their previous four games.
Liverpool” will play after the world with Wolverhampton. Earlier, the Reds lost to Thomas Frank’s Brentford 1:3. French centre-back Ibrahima Konate’s autonomous goal and goals from DR Congo player Yoan Vissa and striker Brian Mbeumo sealed Brentford’s status as winners. Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored for Liverpool. Thus, the Merseyside side had been maximally unstable (+2=1-2) in the previous five meetings.
In the previous five games, there has been an equality of sides. The teams picked up one win each, with three more matches bringing the signing of the world (+1=3-1).
The teams are neighbors in the table, but have completely different capabilities. All because the Reds are having a disappointing season.
Matches with teams like Brighton are a chance for Liverpool to show that their potential is still high. The home side will not give theirs without a fight, but the visitors will be closer to victory.
