Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Newcastle and Brighton face each other at St. James’ Park in a postponed Premier League game. The Magpies have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Southampton, losing to Arsenal, while sharing the spoils with Leeds United. All Ritchie, Lascelles, Krafth, and Longstaff should miss out with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
Meanwhile, the Seagulls proved their worth in a thrilling 3-0 win over Arsenal. Considering that Brighton have been scoring goals for fun of late, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. In their last meeting at the venue Newcastle defeated Brighton 2-1, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on BTTS. All Webster, Lallana, March, and Lamptey are out of contention with injuries, while Joel Veltman is a major doubt.
Highlighted Player (Allan Saint-Maximin):
Allan Saint Maximin is a talented winger who was born in Chatenay-Malabry, France on March 12, 1997. Saint-Maximin played for the likes of Verrieres-le-Buisson, US Ris-Orangis, AC Boulogne-Billancourt and Saint-Etienne during his youth career and he continued playing for les Verts at Senior level.
After making 12 appearances in the league for Saint-Etienne senior team, Saint-Maximin moved to Monaco in 2015. However, the French winger made no more than one appearance for les Rouges et Blancs before joining Hannover and Bastia on loan. In the summer of 2017 he signed a contract with Nice for an undisclosed transfer fee.
Allan Saint-Maximim represented France at youth level, but he has yet to make his senior debut for les Tricolores. His main position is right winger, but he is capable of playing as an attacking midfielder as well. He wears No. 7 jersey at Nice and his contract with les Aiglons should expire on June 30, 2020.
Highlighted Team (Brighton):
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 & Hove Albion compete in the Premier League 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.
