Arsenal vs. Brighton Match Analysis and Prediction

The bid for a Europa League spot comes alive on the final matchday for Arsenal as they welcome Brighton. The match schedules for Sunday at Emirates Stadium with kickoff at 6 pm.

Arsenal continues battling to occupy the seventh spot, with Everton and Tottenham chasing closely. However, a loss this weekend will land the Gunners in the Europa Conference Cup.

The last time Arsenal went without European football was back in 1995-96. However, it might become a reality on the final matchday if they encounter a loss. The 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace made it four wins in a row for the first time in Mikel Arteta’s managerial career.

It started with a brilliantly converted kick by Nicolas Pepe after a Kieran Tierney assist. However, Christian Benteke continued his spectacular form with a dividing head. It seemed the game would end in a draw before youngster Martinelli converted a tap-in in the last minute. However, Nicolas Pepe laid the game to rest in the added minutes.

Furthermore, there is a scheduled fan protest outside Emirates Stadium over rows with owners KSE and Stan Kroenke. Spotify owner Daniel EK recently announced having his takeover bid overturned by the management.

On the other hand, Brighton can rest assured of getting another season in the Premier League. Since their confirmation a few weeks ago, the Seagulls drew 1-1 to West Ham and defeated Man City 3-2.
