Brentford Prediction

Brentford kept their solid unbeaten run going on the weekend when they secured all three points in a 5-2 home win over Blackburn Rovers which was even more impressive as The Bees found themselves 2-0 down after only 7 minutes of the match.

But Brentford’s resilience once again shone through and they extended their unbeaten run to nine matches in all competitions and are now placed as heavy favourites to progress into the next round of the cup here.

However, Brentford will always give their opponents chances in the final third and this is evident when looking at their last 9 matches even though they’ve been unbeaten; 6 of their last 9 have seen both teams score.

The hosts boast a dangerous attacking line-up though consisting of leading goalscorer Maupay (17 goals) and Watkins (9 goals) supported by Benrahma (4 goals), so scoring tonight shouldn’t be a problem.


Key-Facts – Brentford v Barnet

  • Brentford are unbeaten in their last 9 matches
  • 6 of Brentford’s last 9 have seen both teams score
  • Barnet are the last remaining non-league team in the FA Cup


Barnet Prediction

Barnet were involved in a second 3-3 draw on the trot following their first FA Cup match against Brentford as they were held to a 3-3 draw by Non League Premier outfit Carshalton Athletic in the FA Trophy on the weekend.

Goals haven’t been a problem for Barnet either as their recent results indicate, but they’ve also conceded goals on a regular basis too as lowly Braintree Town stuck four past them without reply in the National League recently.

It’s been an entertaining and exciting ride in this year’s FA Cup for Barnet who have had to emerge from the qualifying and early rounds to reach this stage, and have played six cup ties to get this far.

Interestingly, four of the six FA Cup ties have also seen both teams score and with midfielder Fonguck (6 goals) and forward Coulthirst (5 goals) in their ranks, they could yet spring another surprise at Griffin Park in this replay on Tuesday night.

Betting Tips Verdict

Brentford are quite rightly favourites to progress here but their price is way too low, while Barnet will fancy their chances here, especially as they stuck three past their hosts at The Hive.
