Barnet v Brentford Preview

Having been relegated from League Two last season, Barnet have put a bit of cheer on this season by having this tremendous FA cup run. Considering that they are down in the bottom half of the National League, it is unlikely that they are going to be back in the top four tiers of English football next season. But they have made some major strides with this FA Cup run. Their campaign started with a replay victory over League One side Bristol Rovers in the first round, Barnet getting the victory in an away replay.

After knocking out Stockport in the second round, Barnet faced a tough task of going to Bramall Lane to face Championship promotion chasers Sheffield United. Barnet defied all of the odds in the fixture by taking a 1-0 victory. There are reward for that was another shot at Championship opponents in the form of Brentford. The likelihood is, if Barnet are to pull off another upset then it would probably only be by a narrow one-goal margin again. Barnet are currently on a five-match undefeated streak of home form across all competitions, winning four of those.

 

Key-Facts – Barnet v Brentford

  • Brentford have never lost a match in any competition against Barnet
  • Each of Brentford’s last five wins over Barnet have been by a one goal margin
  • Barnet are the only non-league side left in this season’s FA Cup

 

The first-ever meeting between Brentford and Barnet was in the FA Cup all the way back in 1925. Brentford won that fixture 3-1. The Bees are undefeated in their 14 previous fixtures against Barnet across all competitions, winning 10 of those. There was a lot more expected of Brentford this season in the Championship, but they have fallen a long way short of putting together even a shot at the playoffs. They had a horrible run of form from mid-September through to the end of the year winning just two games in all competitions.

They have been doing better lately as they are undefeated in their last seven games across all competitions, winning four of those. However, it is well worth taking a look at their away form which doesn’t make good reading for the Bees. Brentford have only won two away games this season, one of them right back at the start of the season in the EFL cup and the other was last weekend in the Championship over relegation-threatened Rotherham. In this season’s FA Cup Brentford took a narrow 1-0 win over Oxford at home in the third round.

Barnet v Brentford Predictions

Barnet to win: Brentford’s away form does raise some questions about them in this tricky away tie. Barnet have won eight of their last 13 games played and a Barnet-draw double chance is at 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 24th, 2019 at 5:23 p.m.).
