Barnet vs Brentford
England- FA Cup.
Date: Monday, 28th January 2019.
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: The Hive Stadium (London).
After relegation from League Two this season, everything has been going wrong for Barnet. They are nearing the bottom of the table in the National League and most probably end their FA Cup run in this upcoming match.
A 4 match unbeaten run was active for them before the recent defeats to Braintree in the National League. They are not so bad at scoring as they have scored a goal per game in the league games so far. The previous round of the FA Cup saw them defeat Sheffield United with a hint of luck. A first-half penalty goal settled the game and made them progress to the last 32 of the Cup.
Brentford defeated Oxford United in their first FA Cup match this season. For all their efforts a penalty was awarded in the second half which completed a narrow win over the Bulls. After 28 matches are completed in the championship, Brentford is 17th in the table. As they are fighting for survival in the league the FA Cup is one of their main priorities.
Brentford has never lost against the Bees and I don’t see that changing in the near future.
Barnet vs Brentford: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Barnet is yet to win a game against this opposition in all competitions.
- Brentford has won 4 of the last 5 meetings against Barnet across all venues.
- Less than 2.5 goals were scored in 3 of their recent h2h games.
- Brentford has 3 wins in the 5 previous meetings with the hosts at this ground.
- Over 2.5 goals came in 3 of those 5 matches at the home of Barnet.
Barnet vs Brentford: Prediction
Since the visitors have never lost against this opposition, they will definitely be my favorite to win. The hosts may put up a great performance since they are unbeaten at home in their previous 5 matches. So maybe the match may end up as a draw too. But I think the visitors will win because they have played against far better opponents than the hosts did all season. Thus a bet can be placed on the away side to win with 1.50 odds.
In 9 of their previous 10 games at home, the Bees found the target. So even though they concede too many goals, they never fail to give their fans something to cheer about. Even though they are poor in form, Brentford plays in the Championship and has a better attacking lineup than the home team. So we can bet on both sides scoring here with 2.00 odds.
Barnet vs Brentford: Betting Tips
Both teams to score @ 2.00 (1/1).
Brentford to win @ 1.50 (1/2).
