The final round of Championship matches were ridiculously exciting, with Swansea and Brentford both involved in crucial games. There was ecstasy for the Swans after somehow managing to win 4-1 at Reading which saw them squeeze into the play-offs at the expense of a Nottingham Forest team who hit the ropes badly against Stoke City.

Meanwhile, Brentford could have landed automatic promotion to the Premier League if they had beaten Barnsley, although the Bees actually lost against a Tykes side who survived in the second flight thanks to their victory at Griffin Park.

It all means that the two teams will clash in the Championship play-offs, with the first game taking place at the Liberty Stadium and our prediction is that it will be a high-scoring affair between two attack-minded teams who will leave nothing to chance.

Brentford landed a league double over Swansea this season after triumphing 3-0 in South Wales before a 3-1 win in west London, although it remains to be seen how they’ll bounce back after a disappointing end to the regular season which saw the Bees falter at the final hurdle.

Our tip for three goals or more to be scored is partly due to Thomas Frank’s side scoring a sum total of eighty goals this season, with that powerful front three of Ollie Watkins, Said Benrahma and Bryan Mbeumo having impressed at home and on the road this season.

It might surprise some to find Swansea trading as the betting outsiders to win this first leg clash although confidence levels will be sky high and they will regard being in the play-off spots as a massive unexpected bonus.

After a brilliant start to the season, Steve Cooper’s side have been frustratingly inconsistent, although they picked up after lockdown and they’ve enjoyed four wins from their past six games, with the only defeat being a last-gasp defeat against Leeds.
