Forest Green take on the visitors Brighton in the 1/32 finals of English Football League Cup. The match will be played on Wednesday, August 24th at The New Lawn (Nailsworth).
Forest Green is better known for its original philosophy than performance on the pitch. The "Green Devils" became famous, first of all, for the fact that back in 2015 they proclaimed themselves a vegan club - before that it was not in the UK, and most likely in the world. But at the same time, all these attempts to make it as environmentally friendly as possible did not prevent them from gradually rising in the class. In 2014/2015, the team played at the level of the Conference, the 5th division of England, and at the end of the last season they managed to win League 2. But after that, the mentor, Rob Edwards, left to go to the more status Watford. Despite this, the newcomer to League 1 started pretty well, at the very least scoring points (however, in the last round there were 0-3 with Plymouth). At the same time they knocked out Leyton Orient with 2-0 win in the Cup.

Brighton viewed as tough, ambitious midfielder in the Premier League. "The Seagulls" not so long ago rose from the Championship. But Tony Bloom poses serious challenges. And gradually, with Graham Potter, it turns out to improve. The result of the 2021/2022 championship was the 9th place, but everyone is sure that the Albion is capable of more. And, curiously, despite the sale of key players, Bissum and Cucurella, the team shows good results at the start. In the 1st round, it turned out to create a sensation at all by beating Manchester United at Old Trafford. Yes, and with the current Newcastle to play 0-0, albeit at home, is also at least not a failure. Moreover, after that, Brighton was able to win again solidly: he scored 2 unanswered goals against strong West Ham.
For all the time, the teams played each other only once, in 2003, when they met in the Association Trophy, a tournament for teams below the Championship. Then Brighton at home was able to win with a score of 2-0. Brighton may not be very interested in the League Cup - it is important to continue to battle in the Premier League. But for now, the difference in class is notable - we are waiting for the visitors to win with a handicap of "-1 goal".
Prediction for the match: Brighton to win with -1.0 handicap.
