Brigthton vs Portsmouth Predictions & Betting Tips – Carabao Cup

Brighton predictions

Brighton vs Portsmouth prediction and betting tips for the Carabao Cup fixture on Thursday 17th September from the AMEX Stadium. Kick-off is at 7.45pm and the match is live on Sky Sports.

These two South Coast sides meet for the first time since 2012 tonight and the Premier League side will be hoping to avoid an upset. They lost their opening game of the season against Chelsea on Monday night and Portsmouth had to settle for a 0-0 draw against Shrewsbury in their opening match of their League One campaign.


Brighton vs Portsmouth Prediction

  • Brighton are another side who are expected to make a lot of changes to their starting 11.
  • Portsmouth have not made it past this stage since 2010.
  • Brighton have only scored two goals in their last five competitive home matches.

The Seagulls had chances to get a result against Chelsea on Monday night and manager Graham Potter would be been pleased with some parts of the performance. However, the missed chances meant a 3-1 loss and Potter will have one eye on the Sunday trip to Newcastle in the top flight. Therefore, a weakened Brighton team will be on show tonight and Portsmouth might fancy their chances.

Pompy played out a 0-0 draw in their first League One game of the new season and are still struggling to get out of the division despite being favourites to do so for the past few seasons. They beat Stevenage on penalties after a 3-3 draw in Round 1 and although I’m not predicting another six goals here, both teams to score might be the best bet to use the Betiton bonus code offer on.
