Newcastle vs Brighton Match Preview
They Had Their Most Recent Head-To-Head on 13/08/22.
The most recent Newcastle vs Brighton game was played at Falmer Stadium on August 13, 2022, with the fast-paced Seagulls hosting the Magpies, who were on a roll.
However, this was to be another leisurely and emotionless affair, with neither side able to break down their opponents’ lines of defense to change the scoreline. Surprisingly, or perhaps not so surprisingly, given their history, Brighton was more comfortable at the break than their rivals, while Newcastle failed to respond with anything more than a few minor reactions.
The visitors managed to make up the difference in terms of possession – they had 45% of the ball – but they rarely managed to create a single play, while the Magpies, who had 55% of the ball, were able to coordinate their actions between midfield and attack more often. In terms of technique, both sides were on a good level, with the Magpies hitting a 73% passing accuracy, while the Seagulls were able to break down their opponents’ defensive lines with 76% accuracy.
In this match, certain reprimands stood out more than dangerous actions. The first card was for Newcastle striker Allan Saint-Maximin in the 22nd minute. The next card was for Brighton’s World Cup-winning midfielder Alexis Mac Allister. Magpies midfielder Joelinton was also docked in the 58th minute, while midfielder Solly March was hit in the same period. The final card was for the visitors’ defender Fabian Schar.
