Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
There will be fireworks when Brighton and Portsmouth face each other at Amex Stadium in the EFL Cup round 3. Portsmouth defeated Stevenage on penalties in their opener, with the team failing to turn their dominance into goals in a goalless draw with Shrewsbury in the League One round 1. The Pompey aim to claim a major scalp in the Carabao Cup, but beating Brighton away from home is easier said than done.
The Seagulls did well to sign the likes of Adam Lallana, Joel Veltman, and Jan Paul van Hecke in the summer transfer window, and it is no wonder they are seen as favourites to win Thursday’s football match. Considering that Portsmouth are not regarded as good travellers, we predict that the Premier League outfit will advance to the EFL Cup round 4 without any difficulites. It has to be noted that Australia international Aaron Mooy is no longer part of the team as he signed for Chinese side Shanghai SIPG in August.
