Sheffield United vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 12th March 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Bramall Lane (Sheffield).
The top two spots are going through an intense siege by Norwich, Leeds, and Sheffield. Just four points separate these three sides, and right now it’s anyone’s guess who would finish where, taking into account the amazing consistency these three have shown.
Especially at home, United has been a beast to deal with. They have been the best home team of all the 24 squads in participation, and they have registered the second-best defensive stats in home ties. Brentford, though a top-tier team, depend mostly on their home games to amass points, and has been a rather dull traveling side.
As things stand, Sheffield holds the advantage, and they will surely be gunning for either of the top two spots.

Sheffield United vs Brentford Prediction
United is actively in pursuit of the spots that ensure direct entry into the Premier League. As of now, they are just a spot, and two points below one of the said positions, and just four points off the pole position in league standings. Against Brentford, who notoriously struggles on the road, United should line up with belief.
Brentford won just twice in their last 19 outings on the road. One of these wins was against the relegation-threatened Rotherham. Keeping these facts in mind, when they are pitted against the best home team in the tournament, it’s an obvious choice who the winner will be.
Sheffield is on a five-game winning streak at home and kept clean sheets in all five. Furthermore, in their last seven attempts at home, the team conceded just a single goal. Moreover, they are unbeaten at home against Brentford, unbeaten in overall meetings since 2013, and holds a 100% winning record in Championship home games. Add the team’s monstrous defensive line, and it’s almost a given that it will be near impossible to score against them at home. Count on them to keep their nets clean for the first 45 minutes.
