On Saturday, 20th of January, as part of the 21st round of the Premier League, Brentford will host Nottingham Forest at their home ground. The Bees' journey in the FA Cup ended in a five-goal thriller against Wolverhampton earlier in the week, while the Tricky Trees emerged victorious from a gruelling 120-minute clash with Blackpool.

Predicted Line-Ups

Brentford: Flekken; Collins, Ajer, Mee; Roerslev, Janelt, Jensen, Baptiste, Reguilon; Toney, Maupay.
Nottingham Forest: Turner; Montiel, Omobamidele, Worrall, Toffolo; Danilo, Mangala; Yates, Dominguez, Hudson-Odoi; Wood.

Stadium

The clash will take place in Brentford Community Stadium in London.

Brentford

Securing the 16th position in the Premier League standings with a game in hand and being only three points above the relegation zone, Brentford will need to push their limits to avoid an end-of-season nailbiter. The current dynamics, having won only against struggling Luton (3:1) and suffering seven defeats in the last eight rounds, raise concern among the supporters.

The hosts were beaten by Brighton (2:1), Sheffield United (1:0), Aston Villa (1:2), Wolverhampton (1:4) and Crystal Palace at the brink of the New Year (3:1). Last Tuesday, the Bees were knocked out of the FA Cup 1/32 final, losing to Wolverhampton at Molineux 3:2 after extra time – the penalty goal from Matheus Cunha decided proceedings. Despite the setbacks, the Bees are still competent on their home ground, having scored 17 goals in 10 games and conceded 18 times. 

Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest, predicted to fight for survival this season, occupies the 15th position in the Premier League standings, having a game in hand and a 1-point lead over their upcoming opponents. After an abysmal winless streak of 7 matches (1 draw and 6 defeats), Nuno Espirito's squad bounced back with two victories against Newcastle United (1:3) and Manchester United (2:1), thus putting a more positive end to the year 2023.

Moreover, earlier this week, the Tricky Trees made it to the country's cup 1/16 finals, defeating Blackpool in the return clash: goals from Danilo and Andrew Omobamidele gave Forest a lead, then Chris Wood netted the decisive goal. Interestingly under the Portuguese coach's guidance, Forest scores on average two goals per game, although they regularly concede.

Head-to-Head Record

In the first leg, the teams settled for a 1:1 draw at the City Ground. Notably, Forest has failed to overcome the Bees in their recent five meetings.

Match Prediction Brentford vs Nottingham Forest

Under Nuno's guidance, the Wolves haven't yet managed to keep a clean sheet, something the hosts, incentivised to end their losing streak, will surely exploit. Joining the fray is Ivan Tony - Brentford's offensive mainstay. Moreover, the hosts have had an additional day of rest after their cup battles, a fact which could play a crucial role in the players' physical form. My bet is on a Brentford victory.

Total Prediction

Wielding their home-field advantage, Brentford tends to score nearly twice each game, and the returning Tony will boost the hosts' attack. I'm looking forward to at least two goals from the favourites this Saturday.

Corner Prediction

With the backing of the home crowd from the get-go, Brentford will storm into attack and besiege the opponent's goal. My bet is on the hosts' individual total of corners over 4.5.

Yellow Card Prediction

Neither team is notorious for excessive roughness, hence my bet is on an overall total of yellow cards under 4.5.

Score prediction

I'm placing my bet on an exact score of 2:1 in Brentford's favour.
