Leicester vs Brentford Prediction and Odds: Recent Form
Brentford had a brilliant evening against Chelsea but couldn’t make it count due to their Premier League inexperience. They are punching way above their weight and Thomas Frank will once again unleash his disciples against an In-form Leicester.
Brentford announced their arrival in style as they shocked Arsenal 2-0 on opening day. A couple of draws against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa further cemented their belief following their promotion to the top flight.
A narrow loss at Brighton & Hove Albion followed by a 2-0 win over Wolves proved their Premier League credentials once again. They almost secured a win against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool but a match saving tackle from Virgil van Dijk rescued a point for them.
Back to back losses against West Ham and Chelsea have somehow stalled their growth and they will be eyeing a clear win over the Foxes.
Leicester has had an erratic season as Brendan Rodgers has been battling to replicate their previous season’s form. Their statement win against Manchester United has put them back on track and they will try their luck from now on.
Knowing a couple of victories could get them within touching distance of the top four Rodgers will try to enforce all his might on Brentford.
The Foxes started their campaign with a 1-0 win over Wolves followed by a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of West Ham United. They got the better of relegation contender Norwich City but lost to a solitary goal against Manchester City.
A further loss against Brighton deepened their crisis but they managed to recover with successive draws against Burnley and Crystal Palace.
They came from behind to register a mammoth win against Manchester United and will be full of confidence when they visit the Brentford Community Stadium.
Given their performance against the Premier League biggies, the Bees should be proud of their achievements but there are a number of concerns which they need to address as soon as possible.
Ivan Toney hasn’t hit the ground reality as he has grabbed two goals and two assists so far. Brentford’s opening day victory over Arsenal remains their only win on their home ground and they need to improve their home form if they are here to stay.
