Birmingham vs Brentford Prediction

Birmingham always relies on their pretty strong front line to get results, and only if their defense had done a marginally better job, the team would have had a higher placing in the league table. The team has managed to score an impressive 37 goals so far, only five fewer than the league-topper, Leeds.

Birmingham also plays a much more intense game at home. In fact, only once did they fail to score two or more goals at home, in their last eight attempts. Against a shaky defense such like that of Brentford, who have conceded in 19 of their last 20 away matches, it’s logical to assume that Birmingham will score at least two goals, and win at least one of the halves. Brentford is winless in their last 12 away ties in a row and has conceded 19 goals in their last nine matches on the road.
