Leeds United vs Brighton Prediction. In a match that will determine their fate of relegation to the Championship, Leeds United will host Brighton in the Premier League match on Sunday (15/5) night WIB.
Crazy Ball – Leeds United have a release clause on their star Raphinha who could walk away for as little as IDR 382 billion at the end of the season if they are relegated to the Championship and it looks like something bad could happen at the end of the season.
Three consecutive defeats against Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea made The Whites dropped to 18th in the standings with 44 points from 36 games, have the same number of points as Burnley who sit 17th with a game in hand.
So there is no other option for Leeds United but to grab a win in their home game against Brighton to open their hopes of escaping the relegation threat, but the visitors will come into this clash with some positives.
Of course The Seagulls will go into this clash with a splendid result after picking up a 4-0 win over Manchester United at the weekend to leave them now without defeat in their last three matches and losing just once in their last seven, which came against reigning champions Manchester City.
The two teams have a very balanced meeting record, both winning 18 of the 48 meetings so far, with the other 12 ending in a draw. Leeds are winless against Brighton since promotion last season, losing twice and drawing once.
And James and Luke Ayling are both sidelined through suspension. Jesse Marsch will also remain without Crysencio Summerville, Patrick Bamford, Tyler Roberts, Stuart Dallas and Adam Forshaw through injury. Raphinha and Jack Harrison will be assessed ahead of the match.
Enock Mwepu is back in training but is not yet available here, alongside Jeremy Sarmiento and Jakub Moder.
Leeds United XI (4-2-3-1): Illan Meslier; Robin Koch, Diego Llorente, Liam Cooper, Junior Firpo; Mateusz Klich, Calvin Phillips; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Jack Harrison; Joe Gelhardt
Brighton XI (3-4-2-1): Robert Sanchez; Joel Veltman, Lewis Dunk, Marc Cucurella; Solly March, Yves Bissouma, Moise Caicedo, Leandro Trossard; Pascal Gross, Alexis Mac Allister; Danny Welbeck
Brighton kept a clean sheet in 5 of their last 6 matches against Leeds in all competitions and are unbeaten against The Whites since this team was promoted to the Premier League at the start of last season.
Leeds United have lost their last three games, although all against the top four, but with Brighton in high form at the moment, it’s hard to see the injured hosts avoid a negative result here.
Brighton have also won three of their last four away games with wins at Arsenal, Tottenham and Wolves, so Leeds look set to accept their fate of getting closer to relegation.
Score Prediction: Leeds United 0-2 Brighton
