Form and Tactical Analysis
The team looks completely different than the start of the season. After an 8 game winless streak now Brentford has 3 victories in the last 4 games and is unbeaten in 8 matches. They improved tremendously but still need some more consistency at home. They have Just a single victory from the start of the season and 5 draws at home.
Brentford plays in a 4-3-3 formation. Looking to attack and score from the first whistle. The team has lots of pace but sometimes gets carried away and loses focus at the back.
From outstanding start of the season to horrendous run of games. 6 defeats in the last 8 games sums it all for Leeds. They were top of the table now they are out of the play-offs. Similar thing happened last year near the end of the season. The team just fails to perform when put under pressure. They away form still looks decent with 4 victories and 3 defeats but the team looks in crisis right now.
Leeds stick to their preferred 4-2-3-1 formation. Lasogga is expected to bang the goals while Saiz operates behind him giving much needed creativity.

Brentford vs Leeds: Predictions
Brentford are the in form side. The team looks good and will be hoping for a positive result. Still Leeds are not to be underestimated despite the bad run of games. Just ask Bristol City a few games ago. The game looks a bit unpredictable in terms of final outcome but considering all the draws in the head to head clashes we may see another one.
