Manchester United is chasing the 4th Champions League ticket. Can Solskjaer’s men keep winning?
Brighton will host Manchester United on Matchday 32 of the Premier League. Brighton are the obvious outsiders in this game. But not only because they lack experience. They have not won in their last two games against Manchester United and they only occupy 15th place in the table with 33 points after 31 match days. Here is our Brighton – Manchester United tip for the bet of the day!
Accordingly, they should win in order to get a cushion on the relegation places. On the other side Manchester United are ranked 6th after 49 games. They are 4 points ahead of the seventh placed and missing 5 points from a Champions League qualification place. And this is the major target for them.
Brighton & Hove Albion should not be underestimated this season, because even though they are currently in the lower third of the table, they are better placed than last year. In addition, they have recently enjoyed respect. They won 2-1 against Arsenal and had a 0-0 against Leicester. Nevertheless, their defence is inferior to Manchester United. As far as attack concerns, they are only the seventh weakest team, while their defense is only the tenth best.
Since Brighton only contested their 3rd season in the Premier League, we are only interested in the last 6 cross-league games between the two clubs since November 2017. Brighton won all 2 home games 1-0 and 3-2. But also they had to give up all 4 times away: 1-0, 2-0, 2-1 and 3-1. As a result, it can be said that 3 times out of 6 more than 2.5 goals were scored and also both teams scored in 3 games.
United are the favourites
Manchester United should make an effort not to miss the connection to the Premier League top-4. They already played 3 games after the restart of the Premier League, of which they won 2 of them and had to draw 1-1 against the Spurs. Most recently they won the FA quarter-finals against Norwich City (1-2) after extra time. In the Premier League, they are the sixth best attacking team after 31 match days and can trust the third best defence.
However, these statistics only underscore the home goal balance, as they scored 32 times in Manchester and only conceded 12 goals. On the other side, away from home they only scored 16 goals and conceded 19. That is why they are the ninth best away team and the third at home. They were able to celebrate 9 wins at home, they had 5 draws and they lost twice. The outcome wasn’ t good enough away from Old Trafford with only 4 wins, 5 draws and 6 losses.
Despite everything, their coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been successful against Brighton. He celebrated both games (2-1, 3-1).

Brighton – Manchester United tip
We expect Manchester United to win. Since the odds are also lucrative with a tip 2 we can recommend this winning bet to you. We would also recommend placing a “yes” on Both Teams to Score, whereby the bookmakers do not agree on this question, at least the odds are very similar in the case of a “yes” and “no”. In over / under bets, however, we would bet on over 2.5 goals, whereby the odds are very identical at over and under.
Bet of the day
- Brighton – Manchester United: 2
- Brighton – Manchester United: Both teams to score/Yes
