Brentford vs Leeds
England – Championship
Date: Monday, 22nd April 2019
Kick-off at 17.15 UK/ 18.15 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (London).
Leeds is firmly in possession of a playoff spot, and at this stage of the season, they hold a direct-promotion spot with a buffer of three points to fall on. They even may go for the title, considering Norwich dropped four points in the last two match-days, while Leeds won on both occasions. To replace Norwich at the top, Leeds needs a four-point surplus from the next four games.
Brentford is all but out of the contention for the playoffs. They are also safe from the relegation threat. With nothing else left to motivate them to put in a great fight, their home advantage might be the last pushing factor. And against a top-two prospect, things might get tough.
The exemplary form Brentford has been at home in the last match-days will likely make Leeds fans lose their sleep though.
Brentford vs Leeds Head-to-head (h2h)
- Leeds found the back of the net in six of the last seven games.
- Five of the last six wins went to the teams at home.
- Brentford holds a 100% unbeaten record at home.
- Three of the last four encounters at this venue saw the hosts scoring two or more goals.
Brentford vs Leeds Prediction
Brentford was unbeaten in 11 of their last 12 home ties and won eight of their last ten at home as well. They have been in great form in front of their home crowd, and impressively, have never lost against Leeds at home. Moreover, in their h2h history only once has a team on the road recorded a win, which was by Brentford too.
With Leeds going winless in ten of their last twenty road games, the upper hand goes to the hosts. As such, count on them to avoid a loss.
But Leeds is in possession of a direct-promotion spot. They have the title in their sights too. And additionally, they need to stay clear of Sheffield United who is giving chase for the second and last direct-promotion spot to the Premier League. Finally, Leeds has been one of the best teams in the Championship this season. They are most likely getting in on the goal-scoring action.
Back the BTTS option to get a good value in return.
