Brentford vs Huddersfield Town
Date: Saturday, 19 September 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: Brentford Community Stadium, Middlesex.
After watching Brentford outplay and easily defeat Southampton in League Cup on Wednesday night, it’s a true shame this team didn’t make it to Premier League last season.
The Bees had the most efficient offensive line in the league, but eventually lost their ticket in the playoffs. Since the roster hasn’t changed much, fans are expecting one of top two placements!
The first home match is scheduled for Saturday against fallen Huddersfield Town. Anything but a win for Brentford would be marked as an upset, even for bookies, who offer 1.57 rate on home win.
Brentford vs Huddersfield Town Head-to-head
The most recent duels between Brentford and Huddersfield Town always lacked action. There were only two goals scored in the last three meetings for example.
Last season’s match at this stadium was surprisingly won by Huddersfield Town, while the other one ended as a goalless draw.
Brentford hosted Terriers 20 times in the past, won half of the games, while losing seven.
The average number of goals scored in those duels is exactly 2.50 per match.
Brentford vs Huddersfield Town Prediction
As mentioned above, Brentford FC were favorites in the premiere match last week against Birmingham City on the road, but still lost it narrowly 1-0 FT. The only goal was scored in the first half by Jeremie Bela.
We shouldn’t forget that the best player from last season Ollie Watkins was sold to Aston Villa for $28 million. His replacement Ivan Toney from Peterborough is having a rough time adjusting to new environment.
The Bees were the highest scoring team in the league last season, bagging 80 goals in 46 games.
Huddersfield Town were defeated at home last weekend by Norwich City 1-0. That was their second consecutive loss without scoring a single goal. They are clearly a sinking ship at the moment, so another defeat can hardly be avoided.
We are backing Brentford to win as banker bet and hosts to win in handicap for smaller stake tip.
