Brentford vs Derby County Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Tuesday evening (19:45) game features two sides looking to climb out of the bottom-half of the Championship. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats. Brentford will be hoping to kick on after getting their first victory of the season on Saturday when they comfortably saw off Bolton 3-0. The goalscorers on that occasion were Yoann Barbet, Ollier Watkins and a player we have recommended a few times in Nico Yennaris. Derby were held to a 1-1 draw by Birmingham last time out in a result that was a fair reflection of the match. Sam Winnall got his first goal for the Rams since his loan move from Sheffield Wednesday at the transfer deadline. It ended 4-0 when these sides met at Griffin Park last season thanks to a brace from Jota and Lasse Vibe. This broke a run of four games unbeaten for Derby in their head-to-head meetings.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The match prices look about right with the Bees narrow favourites because of home advantage though these two teams should over the season have little to choose between them. Backing yes in the both teams to score market was my angle of attack but really that is priced far too short. Both teams to score in the second-half though has legs as the first-period could be a cautious feeling out process before things open up. This also leads into backing the time of the first goal market and take NO on this option with the time set at a short 28:00 minutes.

YES both teams to score in the second-half

Brentford Preview

After getting their first win under their belt the Bees will be looking to climb up from the 20th place they currently occupy. This represents the first of a run of home fixtures that sees three of their next four at their own ground. At home, they are without a win in five games in all competitions with three draws and one league defeat. Three of these four have seen both teams score and two of them have gone over 2.5 goals. Three Brentford players have scored two league goals this season with Frenchman Neal Maupay among them with both of his goals coming at Griffin Park. 60% of the goals they have scored this season have come in the second-half with 40% in the last 15 minutes.

Brentford Team News

Lasse Vibe (foot) and John Egan (head) are doubts while Lewis MacLeod (cruciate) is still working his way back to fitness.

Derby County Preview

After eight games, it has been a solid if unspectacular start to the season for Derby who have taken 11 points and sit in 15th place. They are struggling a little of late with just one victory from their last four matches. On the road, they have taken just four of their 11 points with defeats in each of their last three away matches in all competitions. Five of their six away ties in all tournaments have seen both teams score and gone over 2.5 goals. Matej Vydra has four goals in the league this season while Bradley Johnson has found the back of the net three times. Just 17% of the goals they have netted this season have come in the final 30 minutes.

Derby County Team News

Max Lowe (abdominal), Kyle McAllister (groin) and Jamie Hanson (calf) are doubts while Darren Bent (hamstring) is ruled out.
