Brighton host Cardiff City on Tuesday night in a massive Premier League six-point fixture. The Seagulls are just five points ahead of Cardiff City in the race for Premier League survival. With just five matches to play, Cardiff City desperately need to defeat Brighton for a chance of safety.
Both clubs are coming off of losses at the weekend to continue their poor form. Can either Brighton or Cardiff City overturn their current misfortunes in midweek?
Brighton suffered a shock 5-0 loss to Bournemouth at the weekend. The Seagulls were thoroughly played off the park and winger Anthony Knockaert was red carded on 68 minutes to compound their problems. The loss was Brighton's third straight in the Premier League. If Brighton do not overcome their current form, they could find themselves back in the Championship.
Cardiff City didn't fare much better on Saturday. The Bluebirds lost their third straight match as they lost 2-0 to Burnley. The relegation fight is now between Brighton and Cardiff City.
Brighton go into the match as the favourite at 1/1 best-price. 18th place Cardiff City can be backed at a 7/2 best-price to win.

Brighton will be without Knockaert after he was sent off against Bournemouth. The frustrating winger will miss the next three matches of Brighton's relegation fight. Solly March and Pascal Gross are both still struggling for fitness. Both players have been out for the last few games as Brighton have lost their last three fixtures.
Cardiff City managed just two shots on target against Burnley. Despite having 54% possession, they were unable to make it count. Striker Callum Paterson remains out injured after undergoing ankle surgery. Matthew Connolly is also out as he recovers from a dislocated ankle as is defender Jazz Richards. Manager Neil Warnock could have Alex Smithies back as he faces a late fitness test.
Both teams not to score @ 4/5 - BET NOW

Under 1.5 goals scored @ 15/8 - BET NOW
Brighton have scored the fourth fewest goals in the league while Cardiff City have tallied the second lowest number. Neither club is proficient in front of goal. Their fixture should be cagey with few goals flying into the goal.
Draw 0-0 @ 7/1 - BET NOW
Cardiff City picked up the victory in their last meeting, 2-1. Despite goals going into the back of the net in their previous game, these teams are struggling to score.
Brighton have gone three games without a goal while Cardiff City have gone two straight matches without finding the net. Both sides will struggle in front of goal on Tuesday night as they misfire.
The Seagulls are -4 in goal difference at home while Cardiff City are -21 on the road. It won't be a great game to watch as the two relegation strugglers fight it out at the Amex Stadium.
