Brentford vs Cardiff by Luke

After a victory away to Burton, players of Brentford didn't manage to make it really count as the team suffered narrow 1:0 loss away to Millwall last Saturday afternoon. Only goal was scored already in first minute thanks to Saville and the hosts were already obviously satisfied with the result being more and more passive - but also threatening especially in the first halftime.

They were even more passive in second, with the players of Brentford surely deserving something more out of the game, but the scoreline never chances in a clash where a draw would have been much more fairer outcome.

After this defeat, the side failed to get involved more seriously in a race for play-off positions, being now at eleventh position with eight points less than sixth placed Middlesbrough and probably staying safely without much chances further on, unless they don't improve drastically and in consecutive matches.

Hosts should be playing with Maupay as central striker and Canos, Sawyers and Watkins as offensive midfielders in 4-2-3-1 form. Left back Rico Henry (8/0) is injured, while doubtful for this game remains offensive midfielder Florian Jozefzoon (33/6).

Cardiff, on the other side, comes from their sixth consecutive victory in Championship, as the team managed to get a 3:2 three pointer against Birmingham on Saturday afternoon in front of own fans. This was their fifth consecutive victory in front of them, as the team made a perfect start and showed their best in the first halftime, scoring all three goals during that part.

Mendez-Laing, Bryson and Paterson were the goalscorers in quite an open first halftime, while the players of Cardiff looked more passive in the second part and a bit careless, allowing the visitors to develop their own game, reducing the deficit via Gardner from penalty kick in 54th, but also via Collin in five minute of added time.

Even though their performance wasn't the best in second part, their victory came never in doubt. The side has kept the second position for now, having just three points less than leaders from Wolves and four more than third placed Aston Villa, remaining in a must win situation here as the closest followers from Fulham and Aston Villa really look great at the moment.

Guests are set to play in 4-3-3 formation with Mendez-Laing and Hoilett on the wings, plus Zohore as central striker. Midfielders Aron Gunnarsson (12/0) and Joe Ralls (33/7) are sidelined with injuries, as well as left backs Armand Traore (3/1) and Jazz Richards (6/0).

  • Cardiff have scored at least 2 goals in 9 of their last 10 matches against Brentford.

Cardiff is undefeated in Championship this year and the team seems to be getting right results even when not playing at their best. I don't see this being changed tonight, even though the draw can't be excluded.

Brentford is a solid side, especially in their home matches, but the team was simply too inconsistent this season and I don't see them being at their best when it matters the most for the visitors from Cardiff.

  4. Pacifier says:

    Fret not Luke, worst case scenario is we will get our stakes back as Cardiff are not losing this one. Great form you are on too.

  5. Shibby says:

    Agree Pacifier. Brentford do have goals in them, however, can’t see Cardiff losing. I’ve backed myself also due to the form of Luke, good luck all
