Brentford vs Oxford Prediction

Oxford plays an entire league under Brentford, in the League One, while Brentford plies their trade in the Championship. On top of that, Brentford has the home crowd in the corner for this tie. Expect Brentford to play out their hearts on the pitch, as their standing in the league is currently not so good, and therefore they need a spectacular showing in this tie to maintain morale and belief for the rest of the season.

Oxford is crippled with the away handicap, while they are also struggling in the relegation zone in the League One. With one half of the league almost over, they are in a very likely position to be demoted to the League Two next season. There’s no realistic chance where they will survive this tie without a loss.

Brentford has scored in 20 of their last 21 home-ties, and against a struggling opponent from League One, the frontline of the home team will have no great difficulty in finding the back of the net. Expect Brentford to score in both the halves, and expect at least two goals from the hosts.
