Our football match prediction:
Aston Villa and Brighton face each other at Villa Park on the last day of the season. The Villans did well to beat their bitter local rivals Birmingham City in their last home game of the season, but they suffered a 1-0 loss to relegation-threatened Blackburn Rovers at the weekend. Steve Bruce’s men are on the right track to finish the season in the top half of the Championship standings, but they are only two points clear of Cardiff City ahead of the visit of Brighton. The Seagulls secured automatic promotion to the Premier League three weeks ago and it is no surprise they were beaten by the likes of Norwich City and Bristol City in previous two league fixtures. Anyhow, Chris Hughton’s men want to put icing on the cake on a very successful season and that is the main reason why we predict the visitors will emerge triumphant in Sunday’s football game.
Highligted Player (Ross McCormack):
Ross McCormack is considered one of the best Scottish attackers at the moment. He began his senior career at Rangers, but played no more than 11 matches for the Gers during his spell at Ibrox Stadium. McCormack joined Motherwell in 2006, but he was struggling with injuries during his first season at the club. In October 2007, though, he was named Young Player of the Month and back then he was monitored by a number of scouts from big clubs. Despite being linked with a move to Wigan Athletic, Ross McCormack joined Cardiff City on 28 June on a free transfer. The Scottish attacker impressed in the 2008/2009 Championship campaign with the Bluebirds, scoring 21 goals in the league, but he was not as successful in the 2009/2010 season as he netted no more than 4 goals in the Championship. In 2010 he signed a contract with Leeds United and went on to score 53 goals in 140 league appearances for the club. On 8 July 2014, he moved to Fulham for a fee of £11,000,000 and he has been playing for the capital club ever since.
Highlighted Team (Brighton & Hove Albion):
Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club were formed in 1901. The Seagulls welcome their opponents at Falmer Stadium and the capacity of Brighton’s home ground is 30,750. The stadium was built in 2008 and it was opened in 2011. The venue is known for commercial purposes as American Express Community Stadium. Brighton compete in the Championship and they play in blue and white stripes. The colour of Brighton’s away kit is green. The club made it to the FA Cup final in 1983, but English giants Manchester United proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils. Brighton’s main rivals are Crystal Palace and the Seagulls have recorded 35 wins over the Eagles. Frank Stapleton, Martin Chivers, Joe Corrigan, Bobby Zamora, Mark Lawrenson, Bobby Smith, John Crumplin and Frank Worthington are notable footballers who played for Brighton in the past. The Albion is Preston’s yet another nickname. Bristol City
