The hosts have a very good squad, and they will probably gain victory.
Watford hosts Brighton in round 1 of English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, August 10th at Vicarage Road (Watford)
Watford is an obvious favorite of the upcoming confrontation, primarily due to the excellent results of the championship. In the season 2018-2019, the Hornets took 11th place in the Premier League standings and could be much higher, but at the end of the season, they lost their motivation due to the loss of chances for the top 7 and finished in 11th place. The team played pretty well in the home field - in 19 matches of the home format, the team managed to win 8 times, which is a good indicator by the standards of the Premier League. Strange as it may be, but Watford and Brighton met in the first round in the last championship, and the Hornets were also the hosts, and they won 2-0 without any problems, having a huge game advantage. I think that the hosts can count on three points again; after all, the opponent is quite convenient, and Watford has a decent squad...

On the other hand, Brighton held the last season not very successfully - the team was one step away from the relegation - the Seagulls outranked the “red zone” by only 2 points. I especially remember how terribly the team looked away - 12 defeats in 19 away matches - one of the worst results in the entire league. And Glen Murray, who became Brighton's top scorer in the past season (13 goals), is not getting younger because he is already 35. I'm sure he simply will not be able to drag all of Brighton’s attack alone in this season. It seems to me that the Seagulls may have serious problems in terms of achieving results already in the first round: the squad has not suffered major changes, and there are not many new faces. I’m sure there will be plenty of problems for the visitors...
It seems to me that the visitors cannot count on points in the upcoming match. Brighton is frankly weak in the away game, while Watford generally looks much more powerful than its opponent does.
Prediction for the match: Watford to win
