Brighton’s European qualification hinges on defensive improvement, says Roberto De Zerbi.

Brighton’s chances of making it into Europe are slim, according to Roberto De Zerbi, due to defensive errors that cost them two points in an exciting 3-3 draw with Brentford in the Premier League. Despite enjoying 73% possession and making 33 goal attempts, the Seagulls needed a 90th-minute penalty from Alexis Mac Allister to avoid defeat. Brighton had to come from behind three times due to lapses in defense. De Zerbi’s side showed resilience and character, but their defensive issues may prove costly in their quest for European qualification. Brentford manager Thomas Frank was pleased with his team’s efforts and had no complaints about the result.

The match was one of the most thrilling games Brighton has played this season, with Albion equalizing three times to share a point with Brentford. Danny Welbeck and Alexis Mac Allister were on target, but the team’s defense was far from impressive. De Zerbi admitted that the result was disappointing and that the team deserved to win. Frank praised both sides’ efforts but was particularly pleased with his team’s determination and spirit, stating that they gave their all for the draw.

Brighton is now in sixth place, while Brentford is in seventh place on goal difference, and both sides hope to qualify for European football by the end of the season. With a fantastic attacking display, De Zerbi believes his men gave their best, and their performance can only get better as they strive to correct their defensive lapses in future games.
