Brentford vs Sheffield United: Preview and Predictions

Brentford vs Sheffield United
England – Championship
Date: Friday, 30 March 2018
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK
Venue: Griffin Park (Brentford).

Sheffield United are about to face a serious test on Friday afternoon when they visit Griffin Park for the clash with Brentford. The Blades are still in the contest of the playoffs spots being just two points shy of the sixth-placed Middlesbrough, but here they will be up against the opposition which is only six points below them in the league ladder.

The good news for Chris Wilder is Brentford’s recent form as the Bees have only claimed q single point in last three league ties. Such run came as a consequence of a somewhat more challenging schedule for the team led by Dean Smith as Brentford had to play the likes of Cardiff City and Boro in the last two rounds.

Nonetheless, the poor run actually screeches back to January this year since the Bees have only won a single of last five home outings in the Championship. Bretford have failed to score more than once in four of these five games and they will clearly face hard times breaking the deadlock on Friday past the stern defensive line of Sheffield’s.

Wilder’s men may have struggled for consistency of late, but they do look to have regained the fighting spirit about them in the most recent set of games. The visitors have kept things quiet at the back in each of last three league outings.

Brentford vs Sheffield United: Head-to-head

Sheffield United have a poor record of 1 win and 3 defeats in 4 visits to Griffin Park over the course of history.

Overall, the Blades do leaf the H2H tie by a single victory ahead of their landmark 10th meeting with the Bees.

The Blades have clinched a narrow 1-0 victory when the two sides met for the first time in three years last August at Bramall Lane.

Brentford vs Sheffield United: Prediction

We expect a clash very similar to the previous one played between these two sides. There will likely be one or even none goals to make the difference as the visitors should park the bus and keep it a low-scoring contest to get the result at Griffin Park.

Apart from the Under 2.5 goals FT, the value is in chasing the draw at the odds of 3.50.
