Watford vs Brentford Predictions
- Sky Sports Football
- Watford have lost just one of their nine home games this season, winning seven.
- The hosts have lost just one of their last nine Championship outings, winning five.
- Brentford go into this Tuesday’s clash unbeaten in their last 11 league games, winning five.
Promotion Hopefuls Hard to Split
Just two points currently separate fourth-placed Watford and sixth-placed Brentford and there shouldn’t be a great deal to split the sides when they face off at Vicarage Road this week.
The teams go into this Tuesday’s big Championship clash in excellent form and both will be gunning to close in on the automatic promotion places between now and the end of the calendar year.
Watford have lost just one of their last nine outings, winning five, and the Hornets boast a fine record at Vicarage Road this term with seven wins and one draw banked from their nine home games so far.
That won’t faze Thomas Franke’s Brentford, however, who are unbeaten in 11 (W5, D6) after a 1-3 victory at Nottingham Forest on Saturday.
A win for either side here would be classed as a significant scalp and would provide a huge boost to their promotion claims, yet it’s also an encounter that neither will want to lose.
Current form and league standings suggest that it will be a closely run affair and a draw is perhaps the best wager here for small stakes.
It should be a fascinating 90 minutes full of quality, but a plethora of goals aren’t expected based on how closely matched the sides are. With that in mind, we’re also tipping up a 1-1 correct score prediction.
