Brentford vs Wolverhampton: prediction for the English Premier League match
Brentford are enjoying a good season. They reached the quarter-finals of the League Cup, where they lost to Chelsea, and passed the first round of the FA Cup, having defeated Port Vale (4:1). The Bees also had a solid start to their first Premier League campaign. After 22 matches, Thomas Frank's men sit in 14th place in the table with 23 points from six victories and five draws.
However, the Bees suffered a dip in form and earned only three points in the last five matches. They beat Aston Villa (2:1) and lost the other four games. In total, Brentford conceded 36 goals in this season.
Goode, Dasilva, Jeanvier, Onyeka, and Raya have been ruled out of this fixture.
Wolverhampton are intent to get European football this year. The visitors failed to achieve that through the League Cup, but still are in the competition for the FA Cup. In the first round of the tournament, the Wolves crushed Sheffield United (3:0).
The Wanderers played 20 games in the Premier League, in which they earned 31 points. Currently, they are in 8th place in the table, but the competition for the top-6 finish is too tight. Wolverhampton have one of the weakest attacks in the league, having scored only 17 goals. In the last two rounds, they recorded victories over Manchester United (1:0) and Southampton (3:1).
Boly, Jonny, Mosquera and Neto are unavailable for the visitors today.
This bet played in 3 of the last 5 games of the Wolves.
In 3 of the last 6 head-to-head games, goals were scored in both halves.
The visitors won 4 of the last 5 head-to-head games.
We will be backing the visiting team here. The Londoners have lost focus and dropped out, they clearly don't have the firepower and the neecessary bench depth to compete even for the top-10. The Wolves, on the other hand, didn't lose in the last four games - they've gained momentum and should be able to collect maximum points in this fixture.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Wolverhampton
We do not expect a large number of attacks and goals in this match. Both sides struggle to create scoring chances, so we suggest taking the under.
Second bet - total under 2.5 goals
