Brentford vs Derby
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 6th April 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (London).
Derby is chasing a spot in the playoffs and is desperately close to it. They trail by a spot, as well as a point below Aston Villa. But a cause for worry is the form of Aston and the teams above them. Derby needs a near-perfect end to their season to find their objective come to fruition.
Brentford is a considerable distance away from the top-six and has a more than enough safety distance from the exit zone. They don’t face any immediate threat but will be looking to shake off the bad form they have been in due to some tough away games in a row. Since the team is a beast at home, they just might be able to do that.
Brentford vs Derby Head-to-head (h2h)
- Seven of the last eight wins were registered by teams at home.
- Brentford has never failed to score in front of their home crowd.
- Three of the last four games at this stadium had both teams on the scorecard.
- The last game between the teams saw a home win, a total of four goals, and both sides on the scoresheet.
Brentford vs Derby Prediction
Brentford was unbeaten at home in nine of their last ten games and won eight of them as well. They have also scored in 13 of their last 14 home ties and did so thrice or more in five of their last seven attempts. Moreover, only once have they lost at home against this opponent, and that was three years back. Importantly, h2h ties show an overwhelming trend of home teams taking the three points, as only once has an away been posted. Finally, Derby lost their last three matches on the road and was winless in the last five.
Expect a home win this weekend.
But since Derby is desperate to get into the playoff mix, and since they have been on good form recently (at home though), and since Brentford saw a slight dip in their form, expect the visitors to get into the goal-scoring duty as well.
