Brentford (5) vs Leeds (2)
Brentford are placed 2 points behind Leeds with total record of 16-5-10 and 52-25 in goal difference. The hosts seems to be back on track for fighting towards promotion and they are coming from winning 1-5 away vs Hull (14) followed by the 3-2 victory at home vs Middlesbrough (18). They are normally all over solid in front of their fans as well, home record: 9-3-3.
Leeds are for sure struggling atm and they and last 11 matches played gives us 2-3-6. They are obviously still in the promotion race but truth is they doesn’t look good enough at all at this moment. Total record is 16-7-8 with 46-29 in goal difference and they are coming from losing 2-0 away vs Nottingham Forest (4) and although Leeds were trying to control that match, it was pretty much deserved that they lost taking in mind the chances Nottingham produced.
* Leeds won the reverse fixture by 1-0 back in August, while Brentford won this match 2-0 last season
* Last 6 meetings: 3-1-2
After watching Leeds losing vs Nottingham last time out I find value in backing them to lose once again tonight. They are simply not good enough specially up front and when facing this aggressive attacking minded Brentford who scores for fun atm, I think chances are good for us to see the hosts winning this one.
