Brighton have a 600 mile round trip to Turf Moor and back on Saturday to face Burnley in what would have been considered a relegation battle six-pointer last season.
Burnley had a fairly successful pre-season friendly campaign in the build-up to the start of the Premier League season this weekend. They played four games, beating each of Oldham Athletic, Blackpool and Tranmere Rovers, all away from home, before suffering a defeat to the Spanish side Cadiz at Turf Moor.
Burnley travel to Anfield to face Liverpool a week after this fixture against Brighton, so will be keen to get some points on the board beforehand. Then it’s a trip up to Newcastle in the EFL Cup.
Brighton also played four pre-season friendlies over the summer, but against a slightly more mixed variety of opponents. Beginning with a 0-0 draw against Scottish Premiership Champions Rangers, Brighton then attained their only victory of the summer against Luton Town a week later. It was then a case of two defeats on the bounce against Burgess Hill and Spanish side Getafe, failing to score in each.
Brighton’s second fixture of the season is against newly-promoted Watford, so we’re sure the south-coast side will be aiming for 6 points out of six in the opening matches before they travel to the Welsh capital to play Cardiff in the EFL Cup.
Last season, both of the two fixtures between these two sides ended in a draw, with a 0-0 result at the AMEX and a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor. Matches between these two sides are always close, so betting on a draw wouldn’t be particularly farfetched.
Odds For Burnley v Brighton
The away side are just about the favourites in this match, with a Brighton win currently priced at 8/5, while odds on a draw are currently 21/10 and a Burnley win is 9/4, so just a little over 2/1.
If these odds aren’t quite as good as what you were hoping for, it could be well worth a punt on the “result and both teams to score” market, where you can currently get these prices:
It’s also a fantastic time of year to bet on the Premier League champion. The favourites are currently last season’s winners Manchester City, followed by Chelsea, then Liverpool, then Manchester United.
Burnley v Brighton Teams
Burnley have made three official signings so far during this transfer window, but there’s still plenty of time for more movement yet. They’ve, so far, brought in centre-back Nathan Collins from Stoke City for a fee of £12.6 million, centre-back Jacob Bedeau from Scunthorpe United on a free transfer and goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey from Crystal Palace also on a free.
Burnley currently have no first-team players out of action through injury or suspension as we approach this opening Premier League fixture.
Brighton and Hove Albion have made two cash signings so far this window, bringing in central-midfielder Enock Mwepu from RB Salzburg for a fee of just over £20 million, as well as goalkeeper Kjell Scherpen from Ajax for a fee believed to be around £4.5 million. The £52 million departure of Ben White to Arsenal no undoubtedly these purchases.
Unfortunately for Brighton boss Graham Potter, The Seagulls currently have five players that are unlikely to be fit for this match against Burnley. These players include Burn, Caicedo, Lamptey, Scherpen and Welbeck.
