West Brom has suffered a 5-2 loss on the road against Everton in the last PL clash. Meanwhile, the Bees will be on the back of a 3-0 home win against Huddersfield in the Championship.

- Both teams have scored in two of their recent four games.
West Brom vs Brentford Prediction
West Brom enjoys home ground advantage, which will come in need for them during the clash with the Bees in the Carabao Cup. The Albions has surged forward to the Premier League campaign after their promotion, while Brentford was unlucky as they had to settle with a second runners-up position in the Championship.
It has to be noted that the Baggies haven’t lost to Brentford at home since 1998 in any major contests. Since the recent two h2h meetings at home in 2018 and 2019 resulted in a draw, the chance for a draw is also present in the encounter.
That’s why; the double chance favoring West Brom will probably be the best bet for the punters to yield decent returns. Furthermore, the last two results here point to another possibility, which is a BTTS in ninety minutes.
