Coventry City vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 20 February 2021
Kick-off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: St. Andrew’s Stadium.
The Bees are one of the best teams in the competition, and are placed second in the table at the moment. They have been a title-contender since the start of the campaign, and have been the best offensive force in the whole of the Championship.
However, they have entered a brief period of lull lately, and need a quick turnaround. And this upcoming match-up seems like the perfect opportunity to do so, since they are pitted against one of the worst teams in the league.
The Sky Blues are on a long winless run, and are placed in the bottom tier of the table. They are conceding goals in plenty, and even at home the team has not been a force to be reckoned.
Going on, Thomas Frank’s men also have a good h2h record against this rival over the years.
Likely, expect Brentford to post the three points on the board this Saturday.
Coventry vs Brentford: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The reverse fixture had ended in a 2-0 win for the Bees.

Coventry vs Brentford Prediction
Mark Robins’s men lost 0-2 at home the last match-day, against Norwich. In the meantime, the Bees lost 2-1 on the road the past game week, against QPR.
Going on, Frank’s men had won four of their last six overall matches, and had scored a total of 17 goals from these four match-ups. Note that they were also unbeaten in 14 of their preceding 17 road trips.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in 11 of their past 13 overall fixtures, and had conceded a total of five goals from the former two games alone.
In addition, they have also won just once at home since the first week of December, and this sole victory had come against the relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday.
In addition, and most importantly, the Bees have a 100% winning record in h2h clashes over the past decade disregarding a single fixture.
By the looks of things, expect a Brentford win this Saturday.
