Brentford vs Swansea Prediction
Brentford were deprived of a third successive win last week after table-toppers West Brom managed to hold to a 1-1 draw on the road. Nevertheless, the hosts have stumbled just once in their last five games in the second division, and are currently placed sixth in the league with thirty-seven points to their name.
On the other hand, Swansea are on a two-match winning streak at the moment. Their last outing saw them edge past Luton with a 1-0 scoreline. Prior to that fixture, the visitors got the better of Middlesbrough at home with a 3-1 scorecard.
Be that as it may, the guests have not been consistent in keeping up a positive run of form. They have dropped points in six of their last eight fixtures, garnering just nine points from a possible eighteen.
It is also worth mentioning that Swansea have come out on top just once in their past four trips on the road. In sharp contrast, Brentford have not put a foot wrong in their last four games here.
Furthermore, the hosts brought their winless h2h drought against this foe to a halt in the reverse fixture of this clash. That too, with three unanswered goals past them. And now with home advantage also at hand, Swansea’s chances of salvaging even a point are certainly looking bleak.
In addition, Brentford have been a real menace in the final third, especially in their own backyard. The home side have found the back of the net eleven times from their past five games here.
Meanwhile, Swansea have been consistent in getting their names on the scoresheet as well. Fourteen of the thirty goals that they have scored so far have come from their trips on the road.
Taking into account that their previous h2h fixture also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, a high scoring clash is definitely looming large in this one.
