José Sá, Nélson Semedo, Pedro Neto, Matheus, and Fábio Silva were in the starting lineup, but they couldn’t withstand the strong performance of the Seagulls. Mitoma opened the scoring at the 16th minute, giving the visitors the lead. Wolverhampton tried to react in the first half, but everything fell apart after halftime. At the start of the second half, Brighton accelerated and scored three goals in… 10 minutes: Estupiñán (46′), March (52′ and 55′) sealed the game.
Despite the heavy defeat, the Wolves didn’t give up and managed to reduce the gap with a goal from substitute Hee-Chan (62′).
