Brentford vs AFC Bournemouth
Date: Wednesday, 30 December 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Brentford Community Stadium, Brentford.
Derby match in 22nd round of English Championship is taking place on Wednesday when Brentford FC host AFC Bournemouth.
Both teams are having the highest ambitions this season, aiming for top two spots and promotion to Premier League. They are currently sharing the 3rd place after collecting 38 points, but Bees have played one match less.
In terms of form, both sides have been undefeated for a very long time. Bookies have labelled hosts as warm favorites for the win at 2.40 rate, probably because Brentford demonstrated great force by eliminating Newcastle from League Cup a couple of days ago. All in all, we should be in for an interesting clash.

The last official games between these two teams happened in season 2014/15 when both were members of the Championship. Both sides celebrated victories at home.

Brentford have over 50% win rate against Cherries at this stadium. They have won ten out of nineteen encounters so far and scored 29 goals.
Brentford vs Bournemouth Prediction
The last time Brentford were defeated in the Championship was on 24th October against Stoke City. 14 games have passed since then, and this series is truly admirable.
The Bees had a slot start to this campaign, still adapting to slightly changed roster and fact their best player Ollie Watkins has made a move to Premier League.
Last weekend Brentford were playing in Wales against Cardiff. They have returned home with all three points thanks to the hat-trick scored by Sergi Canos.
Bournemouth were not so lucky, as their duel versus Luton Town ended without goals on 19th December. Squad has kept five clean sheets in a row though, which is one of the main reasons why we think Under 2.5 bet is going to land easily.
As for the full-time winner choice, we will stick with home victory. Cherries have won only three games on the road this season.
