Brighton breathes at the expense of Leeds’ European dream

As happened last January at Elland Road (0-1), Graham
Potter he won the bench duel again Marcelo
Bielsa (2-0) and his Brighton
Albion take a breath at the expense of the European dream of Leeds
United, already utopian.

Sustained on an omnipresent Yves
Bissouma, the ‘seagull’ team was unwavering in defense and took advantage of the naivete of Aloski to get ahead on the scoreboard. The Macedonian committed an innocent maximum penalty on Danny
Welbeck when the first quarter of an hour of the game had not been completed and Pascal
Gross, who had just missed his last throw from 11 meters, did not miss this time against a Illan
Meslier who guessed the German’s intentions, but failed to touch the ball.

Without Kalvin
Phillips and, above all without Raphinha, its most destabilizing footballer this season, the Leeds He was lacking in ideas and hardly disturbed the Spanish international Robert
Sanchez. Instead, the locals came close to doubling their lead by Leandro
Trossard Y Neal
Maupay, already in the second half, but neither of them was right on goal.

Eternal Welbeck

It was the fireproof Danny
Welbeck who, 10 minutes from the end, took advantage of an error Pascal
Struijk to make his fifth target in this Premier
League thanks to a great maneuver in the ‘white’ area. Three vital points for him Brighton, which practically certify its presence in the top competition in British football for the fifth consecutive year.
