Brentford vs Ipswich Town
Date: Wednesday, 10 April 2019
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK / 20:45 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (Brentford).
Ipswich Town grew in form drastically in the last couple of weeks, but it’s a bit too late for them to save the second tier status.
The Tractor Boys still sit at the very foot of the Championship ladder with as many as 13 points between them and the safe zone and just six games left to play. They thus only extended their life in the division with weekend’s 1-2 victory away at penultimate-placed Bolton Wanderers. The victory was inspired by Collin Quaner’s brace.
Paul Lambert’s troops thus lost only two of last nine league outings in spite of the fact they are all but relegated. Can the Tractor Boys cause troubles to mid-table Brentford in mid-week’s round tie at Griffin Park?
The hosts head into it as massive favourites, but it is hard to recognize the value in 1.44 odds offered for their win here. The Bees are winless in last five league games, three of which they lost.
Brentford vs Ipswich Town: Head-to-head
Outfits have three wins apiece coming into their 11th head to head clash.

The Bees won two and drew one of past three home matches against Ipswich Town.
Brentford vs Ipswich Town: Prediction
The hosts have nowhere to go in remaining six rounds. The head coach Thomas Frank has a deadly attacking line-up with the likes of Neal Maupay, Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins, but his main problem is the lack of team’s motivation as the Bees are 11 points shy of the promotional play-offs at the moment.
Brentford will come into this high on confidence, though, after a strong display in a 3-3 draw to play-offs hopefuls Derby County on Saturday.
Since both teams were efficient at the weekend, backing goals at both ends looks like the best betting option at 1.83 odds.
Neal Maupay took his league tally to 21 with a brace in the mentioned draw against the Rams four days ago and we will alternatively back the Frenchman to score anytime here at the same odds.
