In their previous match, Brentford met Leeds United on Sunday and it finished in a disappointing 1:2 defeat at home. Being the host turned out to be of little importance in Brentford’s recent ten meetings, with the sides performing on home ground triumphing on 5 occasions and the visitors recording four wins. Only one of the side’s last 10 clashes resulted in a draw. All bar one out of the last five encounters featured over 2.5 goals, with two witnessing goals at both ends of the field. The Bees’ defensive efforts proved enough to limit the opposition to no goals in two of these clashes and they failed to score on their own in two. The total of netted goals by the teams involved across the club’s last five outings amount to 14.
