Brentford vs Watford Head-to-head (h2h)
- The visitor has been unbeaten for the past five meetings.
- The Hornets have won three and drawn two since 1992.
- Both teams have scored in four of their recent five fixtures.
- Their previous encounter in 2020 resulted in a 1-1 draw.
- Two of their overall three wins came at home for the Hornets.
Brentford vs Watford Prediction
Brentford has won none of their meetings with the visitor since 1992. They haven’t met that often before in any major competitions which amounts to just five clashes overall. Watford has won three of those and the rest ended as draws.
With their current form, the Hornets exercise a seven-point lead over the home team on the table. Their morale would be high after their entry into the Premier League for next season. Thus, expect the away team to come in with all guns blazing in the upcoming clash.
Furthermore, the host still enjoys the ground advantage in the middle. The Bees are capable of at least scoring a goal in the game whilst a win seems distant with their overall form against the guest. Hence, the double chance favoring Watford will probably be the best bet along with the tip for BTTS in the clash.
