The equality could not be broken and they ended up drawing 0-0.
Brighton, as usual, took control of the ball to seek the first goal. The Wolves took refuge in their goal from the start of the game, accumulating many people in the center of the field to not allow the Seagulls to circulate the ball easily. The local attempts did not generate much danger in José Sa’s goal.
Estupiñán had more freedom in this match to climb up the left wing, but his crosses into the opponent’s area found many Wolves players who cleared the ball. The score did not change and the teams went to half-time with a 0-0 score. The highlight of the first half was a cross between the two benches, when a Wolves assistant clashed with De Zerbi and they had to separate them.
The Seagulls made no changes for the second half, insisting on the team that started. Wolverhampton used counterattacks to get closer to the Brighton area, and they were very close to taking the lead. Matheus Cunha received a cross and took a first-class shot, which Jason Steele managed to deflect, but the rebound fell back to the Brazilian forward, who missed the goal below the goal, sending the ball over the goal.
De Zerbi’s team was losing strength in attack, so the Italian coach decided to make changes. Among the players who came out was Estupiñán, who came on in the 72nd minute to make way for Adam Webster. The Seagulls began to suffer behind Webster with long balls behind him, and the Wolves took advantage to create danger. The visitor had three chances to take the lead, but a lack of aim did not allow them to score the goal.
The variants were far from improving Brighton and had even more complications in creating danger. The Wolves defense was very solid, clearing all the centers into the area and leaving no space for the opponent. 0-0 was the score at the end of the 90 minutes, a result that was not good for the Seagulls as they lost the opportunity to add three points at home.
With this tie, Brighton stayed in seventh place in the Premier League with 32 points. The Seagulls added eight draws, equaling the number of victories they have achieved in the 21 games played, with a figure of 38 goals in favor and 33 against.
