Manchester Utd vs Brentford – When Manchester United hosts Brentford in the postponed match of Matchday No. 25 at Old Trafford, they will be looking to recover from the disappointing 2-0 loss to Newcastle last night.
On so many levels, the Red Devils appeared frail on Sunday night at St. James’ Park. They were totally outplayed by the opposition and gave the Magpies plenty of opportunities inside their own half.
These two teams are now tied for third and fourth place in the Premier League with 50 points each as a consequence of this outcome.
For United supporters, there are still enough advantages heading into this match. In their last 17 games across all categories, the Red Devils have only suffered 2 losses. With 9 wins, 3 ties, and just 1 defeat in 14 games at Old Trafford this season, they have an excellent home record.
But Brentford won’t be taken lightly in this match. Out of their last 16 Premier League games, they have only dropped one. In their Saturday matchup at the AMEX against an in-form Brighton team, Thomas Frank’s team managed to hold on to a significant point.
We think they have a good opportunity of scoring on Wednesday at Old Trafford because they have five goals in their last two away games.
Manchester Utd vs Brentford – Betting Analysis
Manchester United will be out to avenge their agonizing 4-0 loss to Brentford at the start of the season. In May of last year, the Red Devils defeated the Bees 3-0 at home.
In each of the prior three head-to-head contests between these rivals, there were at least three goals scored.
We think there will be goals in this encounter, despite the fact that Manchester United did not contribute much in the final third on Sunday at St. James’ Park.
The Red Devils should have what it takes to get past the Bees’ defense line today after the Bees gave up 33 shots in the weekend’s 3-3 draw at Brighton.
