Premier League Rookies Brentford will look to continue their wonderful 2021/22 season when they host Brighton on Saturday after the international break.
The Bees were able to pick up five points from the first three games back in August and will look to take that energy into September. Brentford started the season with a 2 – 0 victory over struggle Arsenal in the opening game of the season.
Proving a very tough team to score, they conceded just a goal in those three games, picking up a good advantage with a position 2 goal difference, keeping two clean sheets and picking up a minimum of one point in those games.
Brighton have also had a good start to the season, picking up two victories from the opening three games and will be looking to keep that positively going in their visit to the Brentford community stadium.
Brighton defeated Burnley 2 – 1 away at Turf Moor, then went on to defeat Watford 2 – 0 in front of their crowd. The Brighton forward Neal Maupay has been a very key figure in the final third, scoring in two of the three opening games. Both ending with a victory.
Thomas Frank, who is gradually becoming a local hero will look to prime his team into stopping Maupay and also having his potent forward Norgaard ready for their counter attacking Visitors.
Odds And Predictions
Brighton have been given a slight advantage over their Saturday’s host Brentford and despite the edge, it has very little significance when a bet is placed. Brentford are given 2.75 by Bookmarkers despite playing at home, while Brighton have 2.68.
This means a Brighton win with a $100 stake will see you earn an extra $75, while a Brighton win will earn the investor a $68 profit on a $100 stake. However, picking a draw will earn you extra $200 on a $100 bet.
Brighton are the more dynamic and fast paced than Brentford and will be more dangerous on the break but i see Brentford picking up another victory as their discipline in the defence has a complementary effort in the final third.
Brentford 2 – 1 Brighton
