Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Saturday’s football game at the American Express Community Stadium pits together Brighton and West Bromwich Albion. The Seagulls head into the match following back-to-back defeats to the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United, but they are definitely capable of making life difficult for the Championship side at home ground. Brighton impressed in their FA Cup opener against Bournemouth, but they do not want to stop now. The Baggies, on the other hand, failed to win previous three league fixtures, but seeing that they managed to find the net in each of their last 11 games in the English second tier, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score in this FA Cup clash. When the two sides met in the Premier League at American Express Community Stadium two years ago the Seagulls defeated the Baggies 3-1.
