Barnet Prediction

Barnet sit in 17th place in the National League and are five points above the relegation zone but they’ll turn their attentions back to the FA Cup where they are the sole representatives of non-league football left remaining in this competition.

It’s been a long and successful cup run for The Bees who started their FA Cup campaign with a final qualifying round 4-2 win over Braintree Town. Barnet then saw off League One opposition in the shape of Bristol Rovers, winning 2-1 away from home at the Memorial Stadium in the replay after drawing 1-1 at The Hive.

Barnet recorded a 2nd round win over Stockport County before registering their biggest win for some years when they secured a fantastic win away at Championship club Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

The Bees now face another Championship club in the shape of Brentford at home, so they’ll fancy their chances of causing another cup upset on Monday night. Striker Coulthirst (5 goals) and midfielder Fonguck (6 goals) look the most likely to score for the hosts.


Key-Facts – Barnet v Brentford

  • Barnet are the last remaining non-league club in the FA Cup
  • Brentford have lost just 1 of their last 5 matches away from home in all competitions
  • Brentford’s striker Maupay has scored 16 goals to date


Brentford Prediction

Brentford make the short trip across to Barnet for Monday night’s 4th round FA Cup clash on the back of some solid results as Thomas Frank’s side bring an unbeaten run of seven matches in all competitions, including a 3rd round FA Cup home win over League One side Oxford United.

In addition, Brentford have picked up wins in the Championship over Bolton Wanderers, Stoke City and Rotherham United and the form of their leading goalscorer Neil Maupay has been instrumental in The Bees’ recent successes.

Maupay has plundered 16 goals so far this season and has scored 4 in his last 7 appearances, so his presence on the field on Monday night is expected to be an important and perhaps pivotal one for the visitors as they look to get their name in the hat for the 5th round.

Brentford have lost just once in their last five matches away from home in all competitions so they’ll be confident of getting a result at Barnet on Monday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

Barnet have shown signs of a recovery under manager John Still but Brentford’s quality in the final third should see the visitors progress.
