Brentford vs Sheffield Wednesday
England – Championship
Date: Wednesday, 24 February 2021
Kick-off at 19:00 UK/ 20:00 CET
Venue: Brentford Community Stadium.
The Bees have been on a determined run ever since the season kick-started, to get promoted to the top flight. They had decided to bypass the route of the playoffs altogether, and finish in one of the top two spots, which would ensure direct promotion.
And they had done a good job as well in that regards. However, they have been struggling a bit lately, and have dropped some points.
Something needs to be done soon, or else all the momentum they have built over the course of the campaign would go to waste.
They have gotten themselves a perfect opportunity to get back to their track with an emphatic win, as they are at home this Wednesday, and are pitted against one of the worst teams in the whole league.
In fact, the Owls are placed second to last in the table, and have scored the least number of goals till now. Meanwhile, note that their counterparts are placed second in standings, and have scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the competition.
To put it bluntly – Thomas Frank’s men have scored ten more goals than any other squad in the entire English second division.
On top of that, they also have a good h2h record against this foe over the years.
Likely, expect Brentford to emerge victorious this Wednesday.

For the reasons, expect Brentford to post the three points on the board, and that too in a convincing manner.
