Rotherham vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Saturday, 19th January 2019
Kick-off at 15.00 UK/ 16.00 CET
Venue: Aesseal New York Stadium (Rotherham).
The thrashing that the Millers got from Manchester City must have scarred their psyche, and it will take some time before the team is able to forget the day.
Seven different players scoring goals in your net one by one is not an everyday occurrence. The defense was really shaken and by the time the final whistle blew, the team could not wait to get back to the comfort of their dressing rooms.
After a lackluster stretch of performances in the two months preceding December of 2018, the Bees have found a comfort zone. As of now, they are unbeaten in their last six games and look to make it seven out of seven against this struggling opposition.

Rotherham vs Brentford Prediction
Paul Warne’s men conceded a total of eight goals in their last two matches, and 15 in their last five. The team is winless in 19 of their last 21 games. The only saving grace that they have for this tie is that the home crowd will be backing them.
The team from Greater London has been unbeaten in their last six fixtures in a row and should be a huge favorite to easily win this tie. But their away record is not that satisfactory, and they have not fared too good against this opponent at this venue, in the past.
Therefore, I infer a closely fought match, with the win going for the guests by virtue of a one-goal lead. Two of the last h2h wins at the Aesseal New York Stadium also came in this manner.
