Brighton vs Roma

Amex Stadium will host Thursday’s football game between Brighton and AS Roma. The Romans rolled over the Seagulls 4-0 in the “Eternal City” and they are now on a quest to defend their big lead in “London by the Sea”. Midfielder Lorenzo Pellegrini is widely expected to return to the starting XI after the 27-year-old came as a substitute in a 2-2 draw with Fiorentina, while Rasmus Kristensen is back from the Serie A ban.

The Premier League side, on the other hand, have no other option but to go all guns blazing at Daniele De Rossi’s troops. As Roma are not regarded as good travellers, we are tempted to put our money on Roberto De Zerbi’s men, who defeated Nottingham Forest at the weekend. Anyhow, we do not believe that the hosts are capable of overcoming the four-goal deficit. All Jack Hinshelwood, Kaoru Mitoma, James Milner, and Joao Pedro are out of contention with injuries for the home side.

Betting Angles

Brighton x Roma

With the onus on Brighton to attack from the off on Thursday night, I’m prepared to back the home team to hit over five corners at 4/5 on wjcasino.

Roberto de Zerbi’s side are attack-minded in every game they go into so they won’t think twice about throwing the proverbial kitchen sink at this in search of pulling off a remarkable rescue job.

In doing so, the Seagulls should rack up a few corners in the process, something they have proven to be particularly prominent at doing in the Premier League this season.

Albion are averaging 5.57 flag kicks per 90 in the English top-flight this term, a tally that increases to a whopping 7.42 when operating at their Amex headquarters.

Recent Meetings

Brighton vs Roma Prediction

Brighton were one of the most pleasant surprises in the previous term of the Premier League. They have dropped a level this year, though. The Seagulls lack consistency. They lost three of the last four matches across competitions. That said, Roberto De Zerbi’s troops do play much better at home than on the road this season. The Seagulls are unbeaten in eleven consecutive games on the home patch in all competitions. Since Roma have practically finished the job seven days ago in Rome, we don’t expect the visitors to necessarily chase another victory on English soil. Brighton have a chance to fix the impression and we will back them to do so with a win at the 1.85 odds.

It is always wise to back goals in Brighton’s matches. We are particularly interested in this pick in their clash against Roma. The Romans have been scoring at will under Daniele De Rossi in the last several weeks. Three or more goals were scored in all of Roma’s previous nine outings across competitions. You can back the Over 2.5 goals FT bet at the 1.61 odds.
