Brentford vs Fulham Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Saturday afternoon (15:00) game is a London derby between two sides in the middle third of the table. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Brentford come into the match on the back of a 2-2 draw in a local derby with QPR that they should have won having been two up going into injury time. The Bees were coasting thanks to a Lasse Vibe brace but then came undone and had to settle for a point. Fulham were also involved in all London battle last time out as they edged past Millwall 1-0 at Craven Cottage. An Oliver Norwood penalty was the only score but the Cottagers dominated the game in terms of the expected goals data and should have won by more. The two meetings between these sides last season saw Fulham come out on top as they drew 1-1 at Craven Cottage and they won 2-0 at Griffin Park. Tom Cairney netted in both games last season.

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is tough game to call between two sides who are below where they thought there would be this season. I like the look of the visitors in the draw no bet market as I just think they are the better side and the prices offer a little bit of value. A tendency to draw too many (eight for Fulham, nine for Brentford) has cost both this season so you want to keep that prospect on side. Under 2.5 goals is the outsider of the two but it has happened in five of the last seven league games at Griffin Park while just one of the last six for the visitors has gone over so that looks worth a little interest.

Brentford Preview

It is now two successive draws and three without a victory for the Bees who prior to this run had gone six games unbeaten. This is a decent run of games for the London side with none of their next four against teams in the top ten. At Griffin Park, they are unbeaten in their last eight league games though a tendency to draw has proved costly with six of these ending all-square. Both teams to score is a common feature and has happened in seven of nine in front of their own fans in the league. 11 of the last 14 goals scored in Brentford fixtures have come in the second-half with eight of these coming in the last 20 minutes. Just 29% of the goals the Bees have scored this season have come in the first-half.

Brentford Team News

Ollie Watkins (unknown) is a concern after going off in the first-half of their last game. Henrik Dalsgaard (heel) is a doubt while Alan Judge (leg) and Rico Henry (knee) are long-term absentees.

Fulham Preview

It is now back-to-back victories for the Cottagers and seven points from their last three as they start to climb the table. This marks the start of a good run of fixtures with none of their next four against a top-half side. Away from Craven Cottage, it has been a mixed bag with four victories, two draws and three defeats from their nine so far. Goals are a common aspect of these ties with five of their last six on the road going over 2.5 goals. 60% of the goals Fulham have scored have come in the first half and 88% in the final 60 minutes. The average time of the first goal they concede is the 45th minute though this drops to the 33rd minute when looking at away ties.

Fulham Team News

Lucas Piazon (broken leg) is a doubt while Floyd Ayite (hamstring) is ruled out.
