Brentford vs Birmingham City
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 6 April 2021
Kick-off at 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Brentford Community Stadium.
The Bees are placed third in the table at the moment, and by the looks of things, they have no chance to climb to the second spot and thus secure a direct entry into the PL. The only way now possible is to qualify for the playoffs, with a top-six finish.
They have a surplus of seven points over the seventh-placed Bournemouth, and that too with a game in hand. They might be going through a slightly struggling stretch, but they are at home this Tuesday, and are pitted against one of the worst in the Championship.
In fact, the Blues are placed 20th in a table of 24, and have a lead of just six points over the relegation cut-off. However, note that the 22nd placed Rotherham have four fixtures in hand, and they have been in a comparatively good form.
Moreover, Lee Bowyer’s men are conceding goals in plenty, and especially on the road they have been on a long struggling streak all through this campaign.
Likely, expect Brentford to be the better team on the pitch this Tuesday.
Brentford vs Birmingham: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Thomas Frank’s men had recorded three of the preceding five overall wins.
- The last five straight fixtures had failed to have three or more goals.
- The latest meeting at this stadium had ended in a 0-1 win for the guests.
- Only once have the hosts kept a clean sheet at this ground since 1990.
Brentford vs Birmingham Prediction
The Bees recorded a 1-1 draw the last match-day, against Huddersfield. In the meantime, the Blues posted a 1-0 win at home against Swansea.
Going on, Frank’s men were unbeaten in 22 of their last 25 appearances at home, and had even won nine of their past twelve games at this venue. And most importantly, they have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the Championship so far.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 18 of their last 23 overall match-ups, and they have won just twice on the road the first week of December 2020. Note that one of these victories had come against the relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday.
Considering these observations, expect Brentford to secure a convincing win this Tuesday at their home.
