Swansea vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 2nd April 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Liberty Stadium (Swansea).
Swansea had the misfortune to take on some of the best sides in the Championship, in the last few match-days. As such, their recent results have been contradictory to their overall form, and paint a wrong picture about the squad. In addition, they have also had to deal with a club called Manchester City, two weeks back, and reliable sources report that City is a good team.
Brentford, meanwhile, has been struggling on the road all season long. This pill may be hard to swallow – the comfortable mid-table team has registered just two away wins this season, from 19 attempts. The bulk of their point-share came from home games. Also, these two wins were against some of the worst-performing teams at that time in the league.
Swansea vs Brentford Head-to-head (h2h)
- Swansea won the last five games in a row.
- The team also managed two or more goals in these six meetings.
- Brentford last won at this venue back in 2001.
- Swansea has never failed to score at home, and even better, has only failed once to record at least two goals.
Swansea vs Brentford Prediction
As mentioned earlier, Swansea had to deal with some great teams in the last few games, and it has raised the odds for them to win this upcoming tie significantly. We, as bettors, should take advantage of this scenario.
Brentford is easily one of the worst away sides in the whole Championship. In the last seven months, the team has recorded just three away wins. One was against Middlesbrough, currently one of the worst teams in the competition, on basis of recent form, another one against Rotherham, a relegation-battler, and the third one against Southend, a team from a lower division.
Moreover, Swansea won the last six h2h meetings in a row and lost against this opponent last at home in 2001. Also, they realize how their recent record is tainted due to some tough fixtures. Expect them to make amends for that this Tuesday.
In addition, Swansea scored two or more goals in their last six h2h encounters and has never failed to find the back of the net at home. Importantly, they have managed two or more goals in every home h2h tie bar one. And finally, Brentford conceded two or more in six of their last eight away fixtures.
Expect the wounded Swansea to get on top of things in the first half itself.
