Watford vs Brentford
England – Championship
Date: Tuesday, 15 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Vicarage Road.
The Hornets are one of the best teams in the Championship this season. In fact, they were relegated from the top flight at the end of the 2019-20 campaign, and so far they have shown clear intent that they are determined to get back at any cost.
Currently they are placed fourth in the table, and are just four points away from the toppers. Going on, the first-placed Norwich are locking horns with Reading this game week, who are placed just below the Hornets.
As such, a win at the Vicarage Road this Tuesday will be doubly beneficial for the hosts. Not only will it help them close down the gap to the toppers, but it will help to build some buffer over their closest competitors too – Reading.
They also do have a good h2h record against the Bees over the years, and an even more impressive record at home.
As such, expect Watford to have the upper hand this Tuesday.
However, note that Thomas Frank’s men are one of the most consistent teams in the competition, and have displayed great offense all through this campaign.
It’s wise to count on them to find the back of the net.
Watford vs Brentford: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Vladimir Ivic’s men are on a winning streak since 1993.
- In fact, they have not lost a single encounter in the past three decades.
- They have scored two or more goals in every single match-up since 2014, and have failed to score goals only once since 1990.
- At home, they have a 100% winning record in the last thirty years.
Watford vs Brentford: Prediction
Ivic’s men recorded a 0-1 win on the road the last match-day, against Birmingham. In the meantime, the Bees registered a 1-3 win on the road the past game week, against Nottingham Forest.
Going on, the Hornets have the experience from spending their time in the PL (as they were just relegated), and they have also been one of the toppers all through this campaign.
They are also at home this Tuesday, and had won eight of their previous ten home appearances. In addition, they have a 100% winning record in h2h encounters since 1990, and have scored twice or more in every single h2h match-up since 2014.
Likely, expect Watford to avoid a loss at the very least this match-day. However, do take account that their counterparts are on an 11-game unbeaten run, and have lost just once in their past ten road trips.
Moreover, only three teams in the whole league have scored more goals than the Bees, and they have scored twice or more in seven of their preceding ten away fixtures as well.
Taking these observations into account, expect goals to come from either side of the pitch this Tuesday.
