We feel that in this game, Brighton have it within them to stay in control for long periods of time and should be able to convert a few of the chances that they create. In contrast, Aston Villa won’t find it easy to score a goal of their own but we do think it’s quite likely that they will be getting the chances to score, too. Our tip is for a 3-1 margin for Brighton when the full-time whistle blows.
