Brentford vs Bristol City
Date: Wednesday, 3 February 2021
Kick-Off at 19.45 UK
Venue: Brentford Community Stadium.
Brentford climbed to the third position in the Championship standings after a demolishing 7-2 victory over recently-promoted Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.
The Bees have thus continued their splendid spell of form making if five wins in the last six league affairs. They are the most in-form side in the entire competition.
Such a marvellous thread has catapulted them straight into the battle for the top-two finish and a direct promotion to the elite tier next year.
Thomas Frank’s men are now just two points shy of the second-placed Swansea City and have a game in hand on them. They will thus be highly motivated to keep it going and clinch yet another three-pointer on Wednesday night when they play host to mid-table Bristol City at Brentford Community Stadium.
Brentford vs Bristol City Head-to-head
The Bees destroyed Bristol City in the teams’ previous meeting. It has occurred on the first day of the last year when Brentford bagged four goals without conceding a single at the Ashton Gate.
The mentioned 0-4 victory for Brentford ended a four-game streak of Under 2.5 goals matches between these two outfits.
Overall, the Bees lead the head to head tie by six wins going into the 39th encounter with Bristol City.
Brentford vs Bristol City Prediction
The visitors lost two of the last three league affairs. They are still, however, only three points shy of Bournemouth in the sixth position. Dean Holden’s men can thus still chase the promotional play-offs come May. Nevertheless, the visitors do not have much to hope for ahead of the trip to Brentford here. They have lost five on the spin away from home in the league, scoring no more than one goal in the process.
The latest of the Bristol’s failures came at the weekend when they fell 1-0 away at Derby County. We can hardly imagine them matching Brentford’s spectacular attacking line. The hosts have the best attacking record in the league upon netting seven past Wycombe on Saturday. We see them as heavy favourites here and will back them to have the lead at the half time and win the match at the end at the 2.20 odds.
