Full Time

Full time! Brighton 2-0 Watford.

Duffy and Maupay´s goals have served to give the victory to their team. Two out of two wins for the Seagulls to become provisional leader of the Premier League. Only Liverpool have won their two matches so far.

Graham Potter's team worked hard and deserved the result after being the most effective team and with more protagonism on the pitch. 

On the part of Xisco's team, they have left much to be desired and have been far from the level they showed on the first day against Aston Villa.

Substitution. The legend Deeney comes on, which means that there are now five strikers on the pitch:

 

2:08 PMa month ago

76´

Cucho put a dangerous cross! Watford is pressing a little more as the seconds are ticking away. Cucho is being the offensive reference and the one who carries all the danger. He put in a cross with very bad intentions but it went all over the area.
2:02 PMa month ago

72´

Substitution. Graham Potter brings in fresh players to strengthen the midfield:

62

First card of the match. Webster receives the first yellow of the match after cutting off Watford's play in the middle of the field.
1:47 PMa month ago

56´

Watford´s defence is bad positioned. It is Trossard who finds a hole to try without luck from distance. Xisco's men are leaving a lot of holes in the middle.
1:43 PMa month ago

52´

It's a miracle they haven´t score the third! 

Aaron Connolly can't believe what he has just missed. He picks up a bad rebound from the visitors and five meters from the goal he sends it into the sky. What a chance has he just wasted.

Maupay´s goal

 

1:23 PMa month ago

Halftime summary

Bissouma has been key in this first half. The Mali-born player was the rudder of the team. A broom defensively, canceling out the Watford attack and even taking part in the second goal after a steal at the edge of the opponent's area and assisting to his team-mate.

Graham Potter's side were clinical and effective. They went inside everything they touched, taking advantage of Watford's defensive blunders.

1:19 PMa month ago

Halftime

Halftime at the Amex Stadium. Both teams go into the locker room with the home side taking the lead after taking advantage of the only two shots on target.

Goals by Duffy and Maupay.

Two more minutes of added time due to goals and stoppages.

Maupay on the ground. The Frenchman is being treated by doctors after a collision with Etebo.
1:14 PMa month ago

41´

GOOAL! Goal Brighton! (2-0)

Who else, Neil Maupay! What a mistake by the Watford defense! Bissouma, the smartest of the class, steals in the opponent's half and assists Maupay who scores alone against the goalkeeper. The Amex roars!

What a lack of concentration from Xisco's team.

38´

 

1:07 PMa month ago

36´

Dennis stole and went on the counterattack against just two Brighton defenders but the referee said it was a foul.
1:04 PMa month ago

32´

Again another corner for the Seagulls, but Watford cleared well to take the danger away.
1:02 PMa month ago

29´

Sarr is the only threat for Brighton. The Senegalese is the player who brings the most danger to Watford's attacks but he doesn't even make the home defense sweat.
12:56 PMa month ago

24´

Etebo is being treated. The doctors are going to check his state of health after a ball to the face from Bissouma in a direct free kick.
12:52 PMa month ago

21´

Everything remains the same. Xisco Muñoz's team is in a maze with no way out. They only look for the long ball to Sarr but Brighton's defense is playing a great game so far.

Brighton takes advantage of the bad start of Watford moving the ball from one side to the other, from Gross to Trossard doing damage on the wings.

12:49 PMa month ago

16´

This is how Duffy has risen to gain position on his peer:

 

12:44 PMa month ago

13´

Sarr's shot goes over the goal. Quick response from the Hornets who have been outplayed by Brighton.
12:42 PMa month ago

10´

GOOAL! Goal Brighton! (1-0)


Shane Duffy scores the first goal with an impeccable header. A cross from the corner and the Irishman rises higher than anyone to clear the cobwebs from the net.

Brighton open the scoring, which we could see coming after the good play.

12:38 PMa month ago

Brighton took control on the flanks with Trossard and in the middle with Bissouma and Mac Allister. Watford set their lines back in block waiting for the home team.
12:35 PMa month ago

Brighton are putting on pressure! First touches of the ball and the home side have started much more active and pressing Watford. The last shot from Bissouma over the crossbar.
12:29 PMa month ago

Both teams enter the field

Both teams come out of the tunnel and the fans welcome the team with chants. The ball will be rolling in a matter of minutes.
12:24 PMa month ago

Five minutes remaining

Sweet Caroline is playing at the Amex Stadium! It's about to start. Great atmosphere in Brighton!

Previous games: Brighton vs Watford

The rivalry between these two clubs is not very strong. In all their history, they have only met on six occasions with an even score. Half of those matches have ended in a draw, two others in a win for Brighton and only one win for Watford.
6:25 PMa month ago

Keep an eye on Ismaila Sarr

Ismaila Sarr is the most decisive player of the Hornets. At 22 years of age, he has proven to be an electric, versatile player who has the nerve to face the opposing defense.

He was the third best dribbler and the most fouled player in the 2020/2021 Championship.

His quality is so differential that he was about to sign for Liverpool the season in which Watford were relegated to the Championship.

6:20 PMa month ago

Keep an eye on Yves Bissouma

Yves Bissouma is the rudder of the team. He plays as a defensive midfielder and it is through his boots that Brighton's moves start after recovery. At 24 years of age, he is an undisputed starter and has already attracted the attention of bigger clubs.

He was the sixth player with more successful tackles and the tenth with more interceptions in the last Premier League.

6:15 PMa month ago

Watford´s start

Xisco Muñoz has promoted his team to stay in the English top flight. In their debut in the competition they won with flying colors against Aston Villa as Watford has players with the quality to stay in the Premier League.
6:10 PMa month ago

Brighton´s start

Graham Potter's men head into the game with three points after a comeback against Burnley on the opening day.

Potter's two subs gave the Seagulls the win after a sluggish first half. It was Alexis Mac Allister and Neil Maupey who silenced Turf Moor after completing the comeback. 

6:05 PMa month ago

What to expect from Brighton vs Watford

Both Brighton and Watford come into matchday two with all three points after beating their respective opponents.

Brighton are playing their first home game of the season so they have an advantage with the help of the fans.

It is expected to be an even match in which the result can fall in favor of either team. They will be looking to extend their streak and start with a good amount of points.
