When Brighton and Manchester City face off against one other in their Premier League matchup on Wednesday, they will both be in festive moods.

When this match was initially planned in April, there was a lot more on the line. But with Brighton now qualifying for Europe and City winning another league championship. There will be plenty of optimism in the air at the AMEX Stadium.

Espanyol is now in second-to-last place in La Liga, but with three games left. They are only one point away from safety. The Catalan team will feel confident going into their Wednesday match against Atletico Madrid after earning a point in the last meeting.

Brighton vs Manchester City

As Arsenal faltered against Nottingham Forest, Pep Guardiola’s team took the first step toward the treble without ever striking a ball, and they celebrated by cruising past Chelsea with a significantly altered lineup.

It would take a bold bettor to believe that Inter Milan or Manchester United would prevent them from winning the illustrious triple, but with two league away games remaining, it is likely that Guardiola will take advantage of the opportunity to rest his star players before the two matchups.

On Wednesday, they will take on a determined Brighton team that secured their place in the European tournament this weekend following an outstanding campaign.

With a 3-1 victory against Southampton, Roberto de Zerbi’s Seagulls guaranteed their berth in at least the Europa Conference League. They just need one more point from their next two games to guarantee a sixth place and a place in the Europa League for the following year.

And they will use all of their might to win it before they depart for a difficult final game against Aston Villa.

After City’s 1-0 victory over Chelsea the last time around, manager Pep Guardiola made many changes to his lineup, giving starts to several periphery players as well as younger players including Cole Palmer, Rico Lewis, and Sergio Gomez.

Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva stayed on the bench, while Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne came in as late substitutes. To guarantee that his key players are fresh for their two finals next month and Brighton can achieve a result against a depleted City squad, the Catalan coach is expected to use the same strategy at Brighton. Therefore, betting the hosts in the double chance market (win or draw) seems like a reasonable choice.

Verdict

The first Brighton vs. Man City prediction we have is that there will be at least three goals and that both teams will score. Over 2.5 goals have been scored in three of the past four league encounters between these two clubs, including Man City’s 3-1 victory at the Etihad in October.

In three of Brighton’s past four games, both teams scored and at least three goals were scored, while four of Man City’s last six games saw over 2.5 goals scored, giving our projection even more support.

This season, Julian Alvarez has been forced to fill a supporting position for Man City due to Erling Haaland’s resounding performance. The World Cup and Premier League champion, though, has contributed with 9 goals this season and always performs well when needed. Alvarez scored a single goal in Man City’s 1-0 win over Chelsea at the weekend, and we expect the 23-year-old to strike again against Brighton.

City’s Julian Alvarez has two goals in his last two games, despite playing for just 92 minutes in total across those fixtures, and he looks a good contender for a goal as he is likely to continue in place of Haaland in attack.

Espanyol vs Atletico Madrid

On Wednesday night, a thrilling encounter is in store for us as two clubs with very different goals for the remainder of the Spanish Primera División season square off. The visitors hope to end the season second behind Real Madrid as Espanyol fights against relegation.

In their past twelve La Liga games, the hosts have only won two. They are now second from the bottom, but if they win at least one of their last three games, they still have a chance to stay in this division. They must defeat Atlético Madrid on Wednesday before starting what would be a hectic final two weeks of the season.

However, expecting them to grab all three points would be a hefty ask given that they have only won one of their last five home games.

Not only have Atlético Madrid won four of their previous five La Liga matches, but they have also scored at least three goals in each of those victories. But before this game, away supporters have to consider that Cornellà-El Prat hasn’t been a pleasant venue for them lately.

Verdict

The only thing Los Colchoneros have left to play for is to finish ahead of their local rivals Real Madrid because they have already locked up their spot in the Champions League for the next season. Recent matches between these two clubs have included goals at both ends, with both teams scoring in each of the last five encounters.

With both teams scoring in six of their past nine home games, Espanyol has only had one home game without a goal, while Atletico has given up goals in each of their last four road games.

Although Diego Simeone’s team has only won one of their past five road games against Espanyol, we still believe they will leave this match with at least a point. In recent months, the visitors have struggled to score goals on the road, and we anticipate it not to continue in this match against Espanyol, who will be risking everything to stay in the top flight.
