Brighton and Hove Albion are making history by qualifying for the UEFA Europa Conference League for the first time in their history. Roberto De Zerbi has managed the team well since taking over from Graham Potter. Brighton still has an outside chance to finish fifth but must win their final two games and hope for a Liverpool mistake.
Brighton will face Manchester City on the 24th of May at the Amex Stadium near Brighton. The match is scheduled to begin at 8 pm BST. UK viewers can watch the match live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League, while subscribers can stream the match via the Sky Go app.
Joel Veltman boosted Brighton’s fitness when he returned against Southampton. The Dutchman started in the side, reclaiming his right-back position, which had precipitated a series of issues in recent weeks. Robert Sanchez is not expected to feature again. He was displaced in goal by Jason Steele earlier in the season and allegedly refused to accept a place on the bench.
Pep Guardiola has led Manchester City to secure the league title, so he is expected to rotate his side for the match. The coach could give Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne, and other players some rest ahead of the club’s twin trophy tilts this season. Guardiola started with a host of first-choice players on the bench against Chelsea, displaying his willingness to rotate the squad when necessary.
According to the predicted line-ups, Brighton may play Steele, Veltman, Dunk, Colwill, Estupinan, Gross, Caicedo, Enciso, Mac Allister, Mitoma, and Ferguson. Meanwhile, Manchester City may feature Walker, Laporte, Akanji, Lewis, Phillips, Mahrez, Foden, Palmer, Gomez, and Alvarez.
According to the odds, Brighton has a 16/5 chance of winning, while the match may end in a 7/2 draw, and Manchester City is the favourite with 9/11 odds.
In conclusion, Brighton and Hove Albion is the underdog but may secure a score draw with Manchester City. The team making history by qualifying for the UEFA Europa Conference League is looking to finish the season strongly with two more games to play.
