Brentford vs Fulham
England League Championship
Date: Friday, 4th November 2016,
Kick-Off: 19:45 UK
Venue: Griffin Park, Brentford.
Brentford finally got back to winning ways when they cruised past QPR with 2 answered goals on matchday 15. They were without a win in the previous four and looked set for a mini collapse. The Bees were unbeaten at home this season until their loss to Barnsley the previous week. However, they remain as one of the best home sides in Championship this season with 4 wins and 2 draws from their 7 matches accumulating a total of 14 points from a possible 21.
Fulham on the other hand thrashed Huddersfield 5-0 at home to register their biggest win of the season so far. Interestingly this was only their second win at home this season, while they managed 2 wins away from home. Unlike many other teams in the league, Fulham tend to perform well away from home and they were beaten only once on the road this season. They registered 3 wins and 3 draws from their 7 away games so far and are the second best away side in the league behind Newcastle United.
The two teams are closed position in the middle of the Championship table with 1 point separating them at the moment. Brentford are 10th with 22 points, while Fulham are 11th with 21 points.
Brentford vs Fulham: Head-to-Head Stats
- Brentford are unbeaten in the last four Championship fixtures against Fulham, with 3 wins and a draw.

- All the four meetings between Brentford and Fulham have seen 3 or more goals.
Brentford vs Fulham: Prediction
Brentford have a good home record this season and they are renowned for their adventurous attacking style of football. As compared to last season, their defense has also improved. They have so far conceded only 4 goals from the 7 matches played at Griffin Park. Meanwhile, their recent form is a little sloppy and failed to score in 3 of their last 5 matches.
Without a doubt, Fulham are the second best away side in the league and were beaten only once in their 7 games so far. This is pretty similar to Brentford’s home record so far this season. While Brentford are an attacking oriented side, Fulham are patient in their approach. This will be a very cagey affair, but we believe the situation suits Fulham the most. So our pick to back the away side to win at least a point from this match.
