Brentford vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 2 January 2021
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Brentford Community Stadium.
The Bees are one of the best teams in the competition at the moment, and they proudly are in possession of the fourth spot in standings.
They have also scored the second-most number of goals of all the teams in the contest – with only Bournemouth outscoring them by one.
They are also at home – where they have been at their frightening best this season. In fact, all through this new campaign, they have lost just once here, and the sole loss had come three months back.
Meanwhile, the Robins had lost four of their last five straight league games, and the only fixture where they avoided a loss was against the dead-last placed Wycombe. Suffice it to say that they are easily one of the worst teams in the Championship at the moment.
On top of that, they also have a worrying h2h record against this rival over the years, including a thumping loss in the latest of those match-ups.
By the looks of things, expect Brentford to easily secure a win this weekend.
Brentford vs Bristol: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest match-up had ended in a 0-4 win for Thomas Frank’s men on the road.
- They had also registered seven of the preceding eight overall wins.
- At this venue, the hosts have lost just once since 2009.
- Only once have the guests kept a clean sheet at this ground in the past decade.
Brentford vs Bristol: Prediction
The Bees recorded a 2-3 win on the road the last match-day, against Cardiff. In the meantime, Dean Holden’s men lost 2-1 on the road the past game week, against Luton.
Going on, Frank’s men are unbeaten in the previous 15 overall games, and they had scored two or more goals in six of the last nine fixtures. At home, their latest loss had come back in July, and all through 2020 they have lost just twice here.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost five of their preceding seven match-ups, and they are on a three-game losing run on the road.
On top of that, the Bees also have a phenomenal h2h record against this opponent over the years, and particularly so in the past decade.
Likely, expect Brentford to easily overcome this Bristol challenge this weekend.
