Liverpool vs Brentford – Prediction, and Match Preview
Liverpool vs Brentford – With a string of four straight victories, the Reds moved into the top five of the Premier League standings.
Last Saturday against Tottenham, they almost avoided a scare when substitute Diogo Jota capitalized on a bad back ball from Lucas Moura to score the game’s final goal.
In a 15-minute blitzkrieg, Liverpool took a 3-0 lead. It was a true rollercoaster. Nevertheless, Jurgen Klopp’s team once again exposed their previous defensive weaknesses by allowing three goals, although Jota ultimately won the game.
In a possible race for a top-four finish, the Reds are steadily gaining ground on teams like Newcastle and Manchester United.
To ensure that they will play in the UEFA Champions League at Anfield next year, they must win all four of their remaining games and hope that the Magpies and Red Devils make a number of mistakes before the season is through.
Therefore, Klopp’s team cannot afford to lose this weekend at Brentford, who have nothing left to play for but pride in the remainder of the campaign. Following victories over Chelsea and Nottingham Forest in back-to-back rounds, the Bees will visit Liverpool.
Josh Dasilva and Ivan Toney engineered a late comeback last Saturday against Nottingham Forest at home to help Brentford remain unbeaten in their third successive league game.
Liverpool vs Brentford – Betting Analysis
In the past couple of years, Brentford has shown to be a challenging opponent for Liverpool, as the Reds have only prevailed in one of their previous four head-to-head contests.
In the rematch, which was played at the Bees’ Gtech Community Stadium at the beginning of the year, they triumphed 3-1. In each of the last three head-to-head matches between these rivals, at least three goals were scored.
Liverpool will persevere in its pursuit of a top-four finish. They must win all four of their remaining games to advance. They’ve won four straight games in April, and we anticipate that trend to continue this weekend against the Bees.
