Brentford vs Hull
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 17 August 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (London).
Both had managed to crawl into the top half of the table last season, but Brentford did it in a more appealing manner. They were unbeaten in their last four match-days and had won their last three games as well.
This time though, the team could not keep up that unbeaten run alive. Right away in the first match-day, they experienced a defeat, and that too in front of their home crowd.
Rivals Hull too have a similar story to share, as they lost their first tie, and compensated for it with a victory in the next tie. But it needs to mentioned that the squad is on the road, and their win had come at home.
Brentford vs Hull Head-to-head (h2h)
- Four of the last five matches saw home wins.

- The last time these two met, Brentford recorded a huge 5-1 win.
- Hull has never failed to score in their visits to this stadium.
Brentford vs Hull Prediction
Brentford was unbeaten in 10 of their previous 12 games and had ended their former campaign with three wins on the trot. They also have the home advantage, and there, they went invincible in 14 of their previous 17 appearances.
On the other hand, Hull was winless in 9 of their last former 12 overall games and was so in 11 of their last 13 on the road. In fact, they also had a five-tie losing run away from home towards the end of the last campaign.
As such, expect the hosts to deliver a win this weekend. But rooting for a clean sheet for the hosts might be shooting too high, as they have not done so in the last 20-year history of their clashes, be it on the road, or their homes.
Also, Hull has scored at least a goal in seven of their previous eight fixtures, and twice or more in six of their last eight.
With these in mind, await the BTTS criterion to be fulfilled.
