Brentford vs Cardiff Prediction
After suffering a defeat on the road in their previous clash with Sheffield Wednesday, Brentford marked their second loss in the last five league games.
However, both the losses were in their away games. Since they are hosting Cardiff in the next game, the Bees will be glad to return home.
Evidently, the host have a strong defensive layout when playing at home. Out of the 16 goals conceded in 20 games, only 6 has been slotted in Brentford’s post at home.
Also, the Bees have lost only two of the nine home matches in the league season so far. And just one of the losses were recorded in the last five home fixtures.
Moreover, their previous clash at home with Luton ended in a 7-0 scoreline for Brentford. Also, the Bees are on a two-game winning run at Griffin Park.
In the meantime, Cardiff City has not lost in the last four league matches followed by the loss to Bristol City at home.
The Bluebirds have managed to defeat Barnsley with a 3-2 score on the board at home. With a triple win lately in the campaign, Cardiff will be all over Brentford in the game.
Despite having an excellent form at home, they’re on the road form is questionable in the league. Evidently, they have won only one of the ten away fixtures in the campaign.
Cardiff is lazy at scoring away from home. Only 12 of the 30 goals recorded overall in the contest has been registered on the road.
Meanwhile, the Bluebirds have conceded 18 goals in 10 away games until now. So, it is pretty sure Brentford will have an early goal in the match.
Hence, we can expect a tight match with over 2.5 goals in ninety minutes of the encounter.
