Brentford vs Leicester – Prediction, and Match Preview

Brentford vs Leicester – Following a 1-0 loss to Everton in their most recent Premier League contest, Brentford will be looking to pick up a victory here.

In that game, Brentford had 67% of the possession and 4 of its 12 attempts on goal were successful. Six of Everton’s 13 goal efforts were successful. Everton struck early on thanks to Dwight McNeil.

Over their last six games, Thomas Frank’s Brentford have hit the back of the net 8 times which gives them an average amount of goals per match equal to 1.33.

Going into this encounter, Brentford have not tasted defeat in any of their previous nine league matches played at Griffin Park. They have shown an incredible capacity for resilience here.

Leicester City and their visiting supporters will be hoping for an improved outcome after a losing effort in their most recent Premier League game against Chelsea.

In that contest, Leicester City had 49% of the possession and 7 of its 17 attempts on goal were successful. Patson Daka was the only player for Leicester City to score (39′).

Chelsea made 12 efforts at goal, scoring on six of them. Chelsea got goals from Ben Chilwell (11′), Kai Havertz (45′), and Mateo Kovai (78′).

The statistics speak for themselves; in 6 of Leicester City’s most recent 6 games, the opposition has tallied, totaling 11 goals. Leicester City can undoubtedly play much superior defense. Leicester City had lost their previous two league games on the road before this encounter.

Brentford vs Leicester – Betting Analysis

Analyzing their previous encounters, which date back to September 1, 1993, shows that Brentford has not had good results in these games.

They haven’t been able to win any games at all, while Leicester City has continued to dominate, winning 83% of the games they have played.

19 goals were scored between the two teams during this time span, with 6 coming from The Bees and 13 from The Foxes. This results in an average of 3.17 goals scored per contest.

Thomas Frank, the manager of Brentford, is fully stocked and can choose from a totally injury-free squad without having to worry about anyone’s fitness ahead of this game.

For this match, we believe The Bees should start David Raya, Aaron Hickey, Ethan Pinnock, Ben Mee, Rico Henry, Vitaly Janelt, Christian Nrgaard, Mathias Jensen, Bryan Mbeumo, Ivan Toney, and Mikkel Damsgaard in a 4-3-3 formation.

We predict Danny Ward, Ricardo Pereira, Harry Souttar, Jonny Evans, Daniel Amartey, Timothy Castagne, K. Dewsbury-Hall, James Maddison, Nampalys Mendy, Patson Daka, and Kelechi Iheanacho to start the encounter for The Foxes in a 5-3-2 formation.

We believe that in order to score against this Brentford side, who should win and very likely keep a clean sheet, Leicester City will need to put on a strong performance.
