Brentford vs Wigan Athletic
2018-19 English Championship
Date: Saturday 15th September 2018
Kick off at 15:00 UK/ 16:00 CET
Venue: Griffin Park (Brentford)

Brentford are in 5th place and have got off to a positive start in the Championship where they have lost just 1 game from their opening six matches.

They will take on Wigan on Saturday afternoon and could move into the top 3 depending on other results with a win. The club have the best home record in the league so far with 3 wins from 3 and have scored 9 goals averaging 3 goals a game.

Wigan’s away form has been poor and would have seen them in 17th position and it is clear even at this early stage of the season that Brentford will be a hard team to beat at home. Their last home game was against Nottingham Forest which they won 2-1.

Wigan are 10th but a win would see them go past Brentford as the top half of the league is very close. They have won 50% of their games so far with 2 losses. Away from home they have lost 2 from 3 including losing to under performers QPR.

Brentford vs Wigan Athletic Prediction

Both teams are playing good football but Brentford will want to maintain their 100% start at home. They will not be afraid to attack and can cause Wigan many problems a side that lost even to QPR on the road.

The home side should be able to take advantage of this and watch out for their forward Neal Maupay who has scored 5 goals already this season and we can expect him to be dangerous at home once again this weekend.
