Brentford vs Bristol City
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 2 October 2019
Kick-off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (London).
Brentford brought a two-match winless run to a halt the other week by taking down Barnsley on the road with a comfortable 3-1 scoreline in their favor. The win was only their third in the new season, and are currently fourteenth in the table with just eleven points to their name.
Bristol City have been faring a lot better in comparison. The away side picked a point off of fifth-placed Preston in their last trip on the road, with both teams netting three goals apiece.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors have been at the losing end just once so far and have a five-point cushion over Brentford in the ladder at the moment as well. Although Bristol City will be without home advantage for the second week in a running, Brentford will still have to put in the extra effort as the guests are showing no signs of slowing down whatsoever.

Brentford vs Bristol City Prediction
Home advantage has not been working its charm for the hosts in their recent games and have managed to taste success just once in their last five games here. On the other hand, Bristol City are unbeaten in their previous four trips on the road, three of which have also seen them emerge victoriously.
Additionally, the guests have not admitted defeat in any of their last two visits to this venue either. However, two out of their last five head to head meetings here have ended with both teams salvaging no more than a point.
Taking into account that two out of the last three home games for Brentford have also seen them force their foes to share the spoils with them, a double chance backing either a draw or Bristol City to win is certainly sizing up to be the safest punt in this one.
Furthermore, the hosts have been successful in getting their names on the scoresheet in three of their last four games on home soil. Considering that the visitors have not been able to keep a clean sheet in any of their outings so far as well, expect goals down each end this Wednesday.
