Brighton v Man United Betting Odds

Brighton perhaps surprisingly enters into this FA-Cup Semi-Final as favourites to land a spot in the final and they can be currently gotten at 11/8.

Man United come into this match-up as slight underdogs due to their current injury crisis with the likes of Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane and Alejandro Garnacho all likely to be unavailable in a contingent of over a dozen players. This is coupled with a disastrous performance where they lost 3-0 to Sevilla and got knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday at the Quarter-Final stage.

The Red Devils are 17/10 to win the match in 90 minutes on Sunday.

Meanwhile in the To Qualify betting market Brighton are the 3/4 favourites to make it through to this year’s FA Cup final while Man United are right behind them at 20/21.

Brighton v Man United Preview

This match promises to be far closer than many would have predicted at the beginning of the season with Brighton flying high in the Premiership in seventh position with an outside chance of Champions League qualification with nine games to play.

In fact, Brighton has won their last two meetings with Manchester United in all competitions, as many as they had in their previous 17 (D2 L12). Their last victory over them came in the second game of the season when they beat them 2-1 in Old Trafford after two goals from Pascal Groß.

While Manchester United have an illustrious history in the FA Cup with their twelve victories only bettered by Arsenal with fourteen. Their most recent success came in 2016 when they beat Crystal Palace 2-1, they lost the 2018 final 1-0 to Chelsea.

In contrast, Brighton is chasing their first-ever FA Cup win, coming closest in 1983 when they ironically lost the final in a replay to Manchester United.

Brighton have a dearth of attacking talent at their disposal with the likes of World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister, Japanese breakout star Kaoru Mitoma and Pascal Groß who has a record of scoring goals v Manchester United all to choose from.

However, Brighton will be without the services of Irish teenage sensation Evan Ferguson for this match through injury. Manchester United on the other hand will be depleted all across the pitch particularly in defence with Varane and Martinez injured while Harry Maguire is suspended.  It will be fascinating to see who the CB pairing on Sunday will be following their “shock” elimination from the Europa League on Thursday as a result of calamitous performances from 1-11 for United.

Brighton v Man United Prediction

Prediction: Brighton 1-2 Manchester United

Despite Brighton’s status as favourites due to their form and the unavailability crisis at Manchester United along with their Thursday performance I still expect Brighton to fall-short.

This will be a first for many of the Brighton players and Manchester United will  be boosted by the return of Rashford on Thursday (even though question marks about his current fitness level remain).

In the other FA Cup semi-final this weekend is Man City who will be aiming to win this trophy on their way to a potential historic treble.

Best Bet: Manchester United – Win  1-0, 2-0 or 2-1 @ 10/3
