Last Game:

Brentford took very important 3 points before the international break. Their visitors were Millwall and they put up a real fight. Brentford were probably the better side and got the 3 points. Sawyers scored the lonely goal in the 47th minute of the game to give them the important lead.

Sunderland hosted QPR last round and failed to get 3 points yet again. QPR took the lead after Sylla found the net in the 37th minute but Aiden McGeady managed to level the score for the draw after 60minutes.

Form and Tactical Analysis


Brentford had an atrocious start of the season failing to win in 8 games. The team gradually improved since then and now sits on 18th place. Their current form looks outstanding compared to the start of the season as they are unbeaten in 5 games winning 2 of them. They have 4 draws and a single victory in their last 5 home games which shows they are a difficult nut to break at Griffin Park.

Bolton switched several tactical formation in recent games. Last round their victory came in a 4-2-3-1 formation which was the first time this season. Vela was trusted to organize things in midfield while Madine was leading the line.


Sunderland stated ambitions for a quick return the English top flight. Still they are in a real threat not for promotion but for relegation. 10 games without a victory and just 1 win overall puts the team on the 23rd place.

The Black Cats are finding it difficult to adjust to the competition this season and unless they improve relegation starts to look like a real possibility. Interesting to note is that Sunderland looks better on the road than at home and may cause some troubles to Brentford.

Sunderland plays in a 4-4-2 formation with one of the strikers dropping deeper to help link up the midfield to attack. Vaugham usually leads the line as the out and out striker while the second striker role looks more open to rotation.

Brentford vs Sunderland: Head to head

There is just a single game between the sides in the recent years and it was back in 2006. An FA Cup game which finished 2-1 for Brentford.

Brentford vs Sunderland: Prediction

This game look to be a triple threat. Sunderland pick most of their points away from home while Brentford are in a better form currently. Both teams are near the bottom of the table and need points badly.

Sunderland failed to score in just a single game on the road while Brentford has 2 clean sheets from 6 games at home. This gives us a decent chance for both teams to score. In terms of final outcome the braver betters can try the draw as both teams tend to have a lot of draws this season.
