Brentford vs Fulham
English Carabao Cup
Date: Thursday, 1 October 2020
Kick-Off at 17.30 UK
Venue: Brentford Community Stadium.
Even though the new season in English Championship hasn’t stared really well, Brentford FC are still one of the main favorites to earn promotion this year.
Their Premier League membership card was so close in the previous campaign, both in regular season and the playoffs, but Bees were left empty handed in the end.
This Thursday they will open the Carabao Cup Round of 16 action at home against Fulham FC, their old rivals from tier two division.
We are expecting an open match and a lot of goals from both teams.
Brentford vs Fulham Head-to-head
These two teams were playing in the Championship last season, and there were three h2h duels.
Brentford FC won both in the regular season 2-0 and 1-0, but lost the big one – playoffs finals at Wembley.
The Cottagers were victorious 2-1 after extra time played. Joe Bryan was the absolute hero with two goals, while Aleksandar Mitrovic provided two assists.
They locked horns ten times at this stadium total so far – none of them ended as a draw. Fulham were victorious in six occasions, while losing four duels to the Bees.
Brentford vs Fulham Prediction
Brentford’s strength and ability to play against really good teams was transparent in this competition. So far they have faced Southampton (won 2-0) and West Bromwich Albion (2-2 FT, won on penalties), eliminating two Premier League sides.
Can they make it three in a row? Definitely. Cottagers are having their own troubles in the EPL, and they will surely rest more players than their opponents. We feel that 2.40 odds on home win are good value bet.
When it comes to their league matches, Brentford FC are currently 10th in the Championship with four points from three games.
The only loss happened in the premiere performance to Birmingham City, while the other two against Millwall and Huddersfield were solid.
As for their opposition, Fulham FC lost both of Premier League games so far – 4-3 to Leeds United and 3-0 to Arsenal.
