Reason For Brentford vs Leeds Predictions

  • Only Derby have conceded less home goals than Brentford in the Championship this season.
  • Brentford are the fifth best-team in the division in terms of goals per 90 minutes at home.
  • Brentford are the second-best team in the Championship when it comes to shots on target conceded.
  • Leeds are the second-best team when it comes to shots on target conceded away from home.

Bees on the up

Brentford continued to establish themselves as play-off frontrunners last time out, as they got the better of Middlesbrough by three goals to two. Not only did the Bees show their usual effectiveness in the final third, they also showed great fighting spirit. Twice they were pegged back but dug deep to find the winner.

Griffin Park has been a joyful location for Brentford this term. They’ve won nine of 15 at home, scoring a pleasing 28 goals in the process. However, they were recently beaten by top-six opposition at this venue, losing by 1-0 to Nottingham Forest just a fortnight ago. Moreover, they’ve not exactly made a habit of battering top-half teams at home this term.

Brentford have won four of their six home games against teams currently residing above 13th place, though only one of those wins has been by more than a single goal. Meanwhile, in two games against teams currently in the top six, Brentford have scored just once.

Languishing Leeds

As the business end of the campaign edges closer, Leeds’ fans are experiencing strong senses of déjà vu. Marcelo Bielsa’s men are the best footballing team in the division and it appeared for some time they would stride out in front and stay there.

However, much like last season, the wheels seem to be falling off. For all they’re a side that play a great game, Leeds have won just one of their last six, five of which they’ve lost. Such a run of form has landed them level on points with Fulham, currently in third.

In terms of form, Leeds have tailed off recently and do need to improve, but their overall travelling record remains pretty good. Only two teams have claimed more away points than Leeds this season, though their win record away against the better teams is slightly alarming. Bielsa’s promotion chasers have won just one of their seven away games against top-half opposition, while they’re yet to beat a top-six team on the road. There is also Leeds’ long-standing poor record in London to think about.

Lack of goals forecast

At current prices, neither team stand out as a great bet, though going down the low-scoring route does appeal. Punters can profit from Tuesday’s clash by siding with ‘Under 2.5 Goals’.

Brentford and Leeds may be two of the more flamboyant and attractive teams, though neither have made a habit of being involved in a great many high-scoring games.

Only 47% of Brentford’s home games have contained more than three goals, while three or more have been scored in just 38% of Leeds’ travelling fixtures. The fact both also rank very highly in several defensive areas fuels the selection further, while we are tipping a 1-1 draw as our correct score prediction.
