FW Predictions for Charlton vs Brighton

Charlton play host to Premier League opposition in the latest round of the EFL Trophy as they take on a Brighton side that is likely to be without its World Cup winner Mac Alister.

Both Teams to Score

We're predicting goals in this game at both ends of the pitch as five of the last seven meetings between Charlton and Brighton have ended the same way. Both teams have scored in four of Charlton's last five fixtures in all competitions, while each of Brighton's last six competitive and non-competitive matches also ended with both teams scoring.

Place the bet >>

Over 2.5 Goals

There is a good chance that this game will be high scoring as five of the last seven head-to-heads between the pair have produced over 2.5 goals. Four of Charlton's last five matches and each of Brighton's last six outings also witnessed at least three goals scored, adding further weight to our prediction.

Brighton looking to avoid a potential banana skin

Charlton

Last time out, Charlton played host to Bristol Rovers in League One where the home side took the lead in the 20th-minute through Inniss. However, this proved to be a false dawn for the hosts as Bristol Rovers scored twice in the second forty-five on their way to a 2-1 away win. Charlton will be hoping that Brighton's lack of football over the past 6-weeks goes in their favour as the League One side have been playing competitive matches for the last couple of weeks.

Predicted Lineup: Maynard-Brewer (GK), Inniss, Lavelle, Sessegnon, Payne, Dobson, Fraser, Blackett-Taylor, Clare, Rak-Sakyi & Stockley

Brighton

The Seagull's last competitive match came at home against Aston Villa back in November where a goal from World Cup winner Mac Alister in the 1st minute put Brighton in front. However, much like in Charlton's match, the visitors turned the game on its head. First, Aston Villa equalised through a 20th-minute Ings penalty and then the striker scored in the 54th-minute from open play to make it 2-1. Brighton failed to muster a response and the points went to the Midlands club. Obviously, Brighton will be hoping that even with a rotated starting eleven they should be able to defeat their League One hosts but we're expecting the game to be entertaining throughout.

Predicted Lineup: Sánchez (GK), Dunk, Estupiñán, Colwill, Lallana, Groß, March, Gilmour, Caicedo, Welbeck & Trossard
