Wigan vs Brentford Prediction
Wigan has started the season on the wrong foot that they had to reside at the bottom half of the league table. Even at home where the Latics can enjoy the ground advantage, they have expressed poor performance in the season. Evidently, the host had faced Swansea in the previous home match and lost with a 1-2 score on the board.
In the game, the host was lucky to find the equalizer with a penalty. But their strength got down in the second half and conceded a goal during the added minutes. Despite being the host, they had only 37% ball possession 2 shots hit the target out of the 14 attempts in the ninety minutes. This shows that the host has taken a dip in form at home.
On the other hand, Brentford will be confident in their form with the last away game with QPR ending in a win for them. The guest dominated both halves with three goals against the one conceded in the game. Also, the team had very little possession of 48% in the game and still secured 12 attempts on the opposition half. Moreover, the Bees went on to hit 9 shots on target in the process.
As such, it can be noted that the guest is at good composure in their away fixtures. Even when playing with QPR above them at the league table, they had maintained the performance to a strong level throughout the ninety minutes. Hence, the Bees have more chance of winning the match. Since both teams are not so bright in scoring whenever they met, we can expect a low scoring affair in the end.
