Our football match prediction:
Brighton and Watford, the two out-of-form teams, face each other at the American Express Community Stadium on Matchday 19. The Seagulls played out a goalless draw with Burnley at the weekend and it has to be noted that they failed to score in previous three league fixtures. The newcomers aim to put an end to their seven-game winless run in the national championship and Saturday’s football match against Watford could be crucial for Chris Hughton’s men in their battle for survival. The Hornets have been having their ups and downs in the first half of the season, but they failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Huddersfield Town at the weekend. Watford aim to retain their spot in top ten in the Premier League standings, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from the Brighton game. When the two teams met at Vicarage Road Stadium earlier this term they played out a goalless draw.
