The incredible Brighton of Roberto De Zerbi has qualified for the very first time in the club’s history in the European Cup!
The magnificent season of Brighton by Roberto De Zerbi is rewarded with qualification for the next Europa League! The club from the South of England have qualified for the European Cup for the very first time in their 122-year history. A great feat from the Seagulls, which demonstrates that the simple choice of a genius coach can turn the daily life of a club upside down, even in the most disputed championship in the world.
One week from the end, Brighton dominated the bottom of the standings, Southampton (3-1), on Sunday. Evan Ferguson offered himself a double in the first period (with a heavy strike in the 29th minute and on an exceptional cross from Kaoru Mitoma in the 40th) and the 3rd goal signed Pascal Gross (69th).
Villa or Tottenham in the Conference League?
This allows the men of the Italian coach to secure 6th place, with 3 points more than Aston Villa but a much better goal difference (+20 against +4). The clash between the two teams, in a week, should not change the situation. The 7th will settle for the Conference League and the Villans are under threat from Tottenham.
Returned to the elite in 2017, under the leadership of Chris Hughton, Brighton therefore offers Europe. Brighton & Hove Albion FC is the full name of the club in this seaside resort, with the town officially going by the name Brighton and Hove, while Albion is a word from Greek mythology that gave rise to one of Britain’s nicknames.
