Brentford vs Leeds United
Date: Tuesday, 11 February 2020
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Griffin Park, Brentford
It looked like WBA and Leeds United were going to have a walk in the park when it comes to top two placement this season. However, both sides have dropped huge amount of points in the last couple of weeks, allowing Fulham, Nottingham, Brentford and Preston to narrow the gap.
The biggest derby match of the mid-week is going to be played at Griffin Park where Brentford welcomes Marcelo Bielsa’s squad.
Interestingly, the Bees are now marked as warm favorites for the win at 2.55, while chances for Leeds to secure 9th victory on the road are slightly lower at 2.80.
Great defending is one of the most recognizable characteristic of Brentford FC this season. They have the best stats in Championship, conceding only 25 goals in 31 games. The offensive line is doing a tremendous work as well, bagging 52 times.
The most efficient player so far is Ollie Watkins (20 goals). He’s been with the team for three years now since making a move from Exeter City.
Leeds United have ruined all the good work in 2019 with four defeats in the last five games. The only solid performance was 3-2 home win against Millwall. Can they finally return to winning ways?
Brentford vs Leeds: Head-to-head
Leeds United have narrowly won the first head to head encounter this season at Elland Road 1-0. The only goal scorer was Nketiah ten minutes before the final whistle.
Interestingly, none out of the last nine meetings was won by the away team. Six out of the last seven have ended Under 2.5 FT.
Brentford vs Leeds: Prediction
Brentford are just amazing in the back line, and we don’t think they will give a lot of space to Leeds United. It’s a derby match and stakes are high. We feel that both teams would be happy with the draw here.
Under 2.5 FT is going to be the secondary selection.
