BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
The Bee’s take on Leicester on Sunday afternoon, with the home side suffering just their second defeat in the last game.
Brentford wouldn’t have expected it to take eight games for them to get their second defeat. They were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea and were unlucky to not get a point, with the Chelsea goalkeeper the man of the match.
Neither the club nor the fans could have imagined this start for Brentford. They are currently ninth in the table, but staying up this season would be more than good enough.
Against Leicester, it’ll be another tough game for Brentford. However, they have beaten Arsenal and drawn with Liverpool so far, so will know they can do something. We expect them to try and take the game to Leicester, but they come into this off the back of a good win so.
The Foxes put a run of poor games behind them to pick up a big result in their last. They beat Man United 4-2 and this was after even going 1-0 down. It was a great result and one that Rodgers will be hoping can kickstart their season after a slow start.
Leicester missed out on the top four last season and already we think it’ll probably be too much for them again this season. However, they can push for the Europa League spots, which isn’t a bad finish for them at all.
The visitors still don’t look solid at the back and this is something they need to address. HOwever, they have scored eight in their last two games in both competitions, with Daka getting five of them! It’ll be a huge surprise if he doesn’t start.
Sorensen, Baptiste, Wissa and Dasilva are not available for the hosts, with Janelt a doubt.
Perez, Ndidi, Mendy, Fofana and Justin make up Leicesters list of injuries.
This should be an entertaining game, but we think Leicester will have enough to get the three points in a close game.
