The match

It will be a proper relegation battle six-pointer in the English Premier League, when Cardiff City (18th, 28 points) travel to Brighton & Hove Albion (17th, 33 points). The Seagulls start this round five points above the bottom three, having played a game lesser than the teams around. With just 32 goals this season, Brighton have the joint-third worst scoring record in the Premier League. The hosts have lost their last three league games and have won just two since the start of 2019 (W2, D2, L8). Their record has worsened while playing at home, as they have won just of their last six Premier League matches at this venue (W1, D1, L4). Cardiff start the round five points adrift of safety and can make things interesting by chalking out three points of that deficit with a win in this match. However, a 2-0 loss to Burnley over the weekend extended their losing streak to three matches and they have lost six of their last seven (W1, L6). With just 28 goals to their name, Cardiff have the second-worst scoring rate of the season, while they have conceded the third-most number of goals (63) this Premier League season. Playing away from home in the Premier League, Cardiff have lost five of their last six (W1, L5) including the last three.

Key Statistics
