Brentford vs Swansea Betting Tips & Predictions
Swansea City haven’t looked like promotion contenders for the majority of the 2019/20 Championship season, although they’re in the box seat to reach the play-off final after beating Brentford 1-0 on Sunday.
Steve Cooper’s side were full value for the victory which eventually came after Andre Ayew found the net following the forward’s penalty miss earlier in the match. The Swans were full of attacking energy and it’s our prediction that the Welsh side will get on the front foot at Griffin Park.
After all, 1-0 is a dangerous lead to try and defend against a Brentford side who burst into life after lockdown and at one stage looked as though they were going to seal an automatic promotion spot.
Indeed, the Bees became promotion betting favourites and had destiny in their own hands only to lose against Stoke and Barnsley in their final two games of the regular season, meaning it’s now three defeats on the bounce for the London side.
It will be a concern to Thomas Frank that just two goals have been scored in the past three matches and our betting tip is for Swansea to find a way to qualify for the play-off final on Wednesday night.
Let’s not forget that the visitors went to Reading in their final game of the regular season and landed an amazing 4-1 triumph which saw them leapfrog Nottingham Forest and secure sixth position in the process.
Ayew has been effective in the wide left position and the on-loan Rhian Brewster is a lively threat for an attack-minded team who look more than capable of matching their opponents goal-wise on the night.
For Brentford, they have to get themselves out of a rut and find a way to win this football match. They have attacking riches of their own although they will be up against a team who have lost just one of the previous eight games.
