BHA vs WAT Dream11 Team Prediction Tips for Brighton and Hove Albion vs Watford EPL Fixtures 21 August


Brighton and Watford wrap up Saturday’s fixtures with a late kickoff. Both teams have begun well in the new campaign. Brighton came from behind to win 2-1 at Burnley. Neal Maupay and Alexis Mac Allister were on the scoresheet for the Seagulls.

BHA vs WAT Dream11:

Watford was brilliant in the opening game versus Aston Villa. They won thanks to goals from Emmanuel Dennis, Ismaila Sarr, and Cucho Hernandez. Aston Villa managed two goals but it was all too late with Danny Ings firing in an injury-time penalty. Coach Xisco Munoz would be hoping his side can replicate the efforts shown in the first game.

Fantasy Football Tips

Captain Options

We are recommending N Maupay as the main captain pick. The French forward opened his account against Burnley last week. Last year he had scored eight goals and supplied two assists.

Ismaila Sarr could continue his good form here. The Senegalese winger was at his best in the last game running rings around Matt Targett. He scored a goal and delivered a Man of the Match Performance.

Differential Pick

Leandro Trossard could be key for the home side. The diminutive Belgian often finds himself in good goalscoring positions. He had five goals and six assists last season.

BHA vs WAT Dream11 Teams

Goalkeeper – R Sanchez
Defenders – S Duffy, C Cathcart, C Kabasele, L Dunk
Midfielders – T Cleverly, P Gross, Y Bissouma

Forwards – I Sarr, N Maupay, L Trossard

Likely Winner:
Brighton won their opening game for the first time in six seasons. They have a solid defence; their only difficulty is handling the set pieces. Watford looked good going forward but it is hard to envisage a win here for the Hornets. The BHA vs WAT Today Match Prediction odds are in favor of a narrow win for Brighton.
