West London rivals Brentford and Chelsea do battle in a Carabao Cup quarter-final at the Brentford Community Stadium on Wednesday night. The Blues have hit a rough patch of form in recent weeks, but they make the short trip from Stamford Bridge as the clear favourites to get the win and book their spot in the last four. However, Brentford are not an easy nut to crack on their own patch. Read on for the best betting odds and tips.

Brentford Preview – Can the Bees upset their rivals?

After winning promotion from the EFL Championship via the play-off route last term, Brentford are competing in the Premier League for the first time. They have made a decent fist of things so far, winning five of their opening 16 games to occupy 12th position at the halfway point.

Thomas Frank’s men had a good run in this competition last season, and they have reached the final eight of the 2021-22 EFL Cup. They beat Forest Green Rovers before thumping Oldham Athletic 7-0. In the last round, the Bees edged past Championship side Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

(odds taken 1304 GMT, Tuesday 21 December)

Brentford have won their last two at home, seeing off Everton and Watford in Premier League action. They may be the underdogs in this one, but the dogged west Londoners fancy their chances against anyone at the Brentford Community Stadium.

Chelsea Preview – Will the Blues progress to last four?

Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea are fighting on all fronts this season. They are through to the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League and sit third in the Premier League. However, they head into this one having drawn three of their past five in all competitions.

Chelsea have been in patchy form lately, winning just one of their last five league and cup games. They have also failed to win in normal time in the EFL Cup this season, needing penalties to see off both Aston Villa and Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

The west London sides also squared off in the FA Cup almost five years ago, with Chelsea running out comfortable 4-0 winners at the Bridge thanks to goals from Willian, Pedro, Branislav Ivanovic and Michy Batshuayi.


Key Facts – Brentford vs Chelsea Betting Tip
