Derby vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 11 July 2020
Kick-Off at 12:30 UK/ 13:30 CET
Venue: Pride Park.
The Rams need to win to keep their chances alive for the playoffs. But this will also depend on the results of teams like Swansea and Preston North End. Currently, the home side is 9th in the table with a two-match winless run going on. The defeat to West Brom has hurt them real bad.
Brentford has won all their recent six league games on the trot. In terms of form in the last five games, no other team will top them. With fewer than five matches to go, they have almost guaranteed a spot in the business end of the season.

Derby vs Brentford: Prediction
Derby County has displayed one of the best home performances this season after Brentford. From the 21 home games, they have 11 wins and only two defeats; which is the smallest number of home defeats for any team.
Even though they have lost the recent match against a strong West Brom, it was not on their home soil. With an unbeaten run going on in head to head matches at this ground they will not bend their knees easily.
Also, considering the winning streak of Brentford, I think we can agree on a Double Chance for a draw or the hosts getting a narrow win.
More than half of the 51 goals that the Rams netted were in home games. They have a 9 match scoring streak also going on at this ground.
Brentford is also on a scoring spree after finding goals in six consecutive matches on the road. So I am backing both sides to get in the score sheet on Saturday.
