Brentford vs Middlesbrough
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 7 November 2020
Kick-off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Brentford Community Stadium.
Both these teams are amongst the best in the Championship. The Boro are currently placed in one of the European spots, and they have lost just once all through this campaign. They are also one of the few teams in the whole competition to stay unbeaten in the past five match-days.
Meanwhile, the Bees are trailing by just two points behind them, and have also scored the second-most number of goals in the process.
They are also at home, and have performed well in recent h2h clashes. However, over the years, Neil Warnock’s men have been the better team in h2h encounters, and especially so at this stadium.
In addition, majority of h2h meetings have also had goals in plenty.
Likely, expect goals to come from both these in-form teams this weekend.
Brentford vs Middlesbrough: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The latest encounter saw Thomas Frank’s men win 3-2 at home.
- They are also on a three-game winning run.
- However, the seven wins before this stretch had been recorded by their opposite number.
- Five of the preceding six clashes had goals from both teams.
- Seven of the former ten meetings had three or more goals.
Brentford vs Middlesbrough: Prediction
The Bees were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day, by Swansea. In the meantime, the Boro secured a goalless draw on the road against Blackburn.
Going on, Frank’s men were unbeaten in 12 of their preceding 15 overall match-ups, and they remained so in 18 of their former 20 appearances at home. In the process, they had scored two or more goals in nine of their last twelve overall fixtures, and in seven of their past nine home games.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a nine-fixture unbeaten run, and they remained so in 13 of their last 15 overall match-ups. On the road, they were unbeaten in eight of their last nine fixtures, and even went through a four-game winning run during the stretch.
Moving on, majority of h2h encounters also had goals from both teams. In fact, five of the last six overall h2h meetings had the BTTS clause satisfied, and so did every such meeting at this venue since 2015, bar one.
Likely, it goes without saying that either of these teams are in form, and there’s a very high probability that they will turn this upcoming encounter into a goal-fest.
