Brentford Prediction

Brentford’s promising run of results in the Championship came to an abrupt end at the City Ground on Saturday afternoon when they were narrowly beaten by Nottingham Forest 2-1 which ended a sequence of seven league matches without defeat in the Championship.

Recent wins over Bolton Wanderers, Stoke City, Rotherham United and Blackburn Rovers have kept The Bees well away from being involved in the relegation battle below them, but they still only occupy a lowly 18th place following their defeat to Forest.

Nevertheless, Thomas Frank’s side still possess a comfortable 11 point cushion over third from bottom club, Reading as they prepare for the visit of Aston Villa, with home form producing some encouraging results in recent weeks.

Brentford have won three of their last four at home with wins against Bolton Wanderers, Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers as well as a draw with league leaders, Norwich City, so the hosts will be confident they can get something from this encounter and further improve a very reasonable looking home record that stands at 8-3-4 31/18.

The Bees’ obvious goal threat is leading goalscorer Maupay (17 goals) who has scored 6 goals in his last 10 appearances.

 

Key-Facts – Brentford v Aston Villa

  • Brentford recently put together a 7 match unbeaten run in the Championship
  • Brentford have won 3 of their last 4 at home in the Championship
  • The last meeting between Brentford and Aston Villa ended in a 2-2 draw

 

Aston Villa Prediction

Onto Aston Villa, and they secured what could prove to be a valuable point on Friday night when they held third placed Sheffield United to a 3-3 draw at Villa Park after being 3-0 down to The Blades.

Dean Smith’s boys showed remarkable character and resilience to claw their way back into the match to take a point as they looked dead and buried at one point. Smith will now be hoping they can continue this fighting spirit down to his old stomping ground, Griffin Park where he’ll be aiming to be public enemy number one with a win against his old club on Wednesday night.

The visitors have lost just once in their last seven matches overall in the Championship which was a heavy 3-0 loss at Wigan Athletic, but wins at Derby County, Middlesbrough and Swansea City have helped maintain Aston Villa’s push for a top six finish and a place in the play-offs.

However, an away record of 4-6-5 19/19 hasn’t been convincing this season and they could find Brentford tricky customers at Griffin Park.

Betting Tips Verdict

Brentford are no slouches and will make Villa pay for any sloppy defending, so a draw no bet play on the hosts looks a solid option.
