In one of the matches of the fifth round of the English Championship on Saturday 17 October, Brentford will host Coventry – we have prepared a forecast for this meeting.
Last year ‘s Brentford Championship finalist did not start very well this season. Despite the fact that in the League Cup the Londoners have proved that they look no worse than last year’s competitors, beating both Fulham (3-0) and West Bromwich (3-2 on penalties), things in the championship do not look so impressive.
For the past four rounds, the “bees” managed to get only one victory, beating just at their home arena “Huddersfield” (3: 0). The team earned another point in a meeting with Millwall (1: 1), but lost to Preston (2: 4) and Birmingham (0: 1).
Four points so far allow taking only 15th place in the standings.
Coventry returned to the Championship this season after eight years. So far, the team is undergoing adaptation, but has already shown that it is not going to be whipping boys. In four rounds, she managed to replenish her spectacled baggage with four points and is ranked 18th in the Championship standings.
The only victory for the Sky Blue was in the home match against Queens Park Rangers (3: 2). They also got one point in the away meeting with Barnsley (0: 0), losing at the same time to Bristol City (1: 2) and Bournemouth (1: 3).
It is worth noting that now Coventry has suffered a series of injuries. There are seven players in the infirmary at once.
Brentford have won seven of their last nine home games in the Championship.
In eight of their last ten home games, Brentford have played a “total over 2.5” forecast.
In three of the four matches Coventry has played in this league, both will score and total over 2.5 bets.
In the upcoming match, we offer to bet on a confident victory for the hosts. Brentford played well in attack last season, and they score quite well this year. In the League Cup, scored more goals against opponents from the Premier League. Coventry concedes a bit too much, besides, there are problems with the lineup.
Our prediction – Brentford will win with a handicap (-1) for 2.09 in BC Winline
