Brentford vs Newcastle United Match Prediction

By Charlotte Louise Bushell

This game was originally scheduled to be live on Monday night though it has been moved back to Saturday afternoon (15:00) because it now clashes with an FA Cup replay. Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats

Brentford had few problems seeing off non-league Eastleigh at the weekend beating them 5-1 despite missing Scott Hogan. The Bees had Tom Field net twice while Yoann Barbet, Lasse Vibe and Romaine Sawyers all grabbed one each.

The Magpies were held to a 1-1 draw at Birmingham in their third-round tie with Daryl Murphy, the man who grabbed the goal for the North Eastern side.

Last time these teams met it was comfortable for Newcastle as they were 2-0 up at half-time and ran out 3-1 winners thanks to a brace from Dwight Gayle and one from Ciaran Clark, Scott Hogan netted the consolation for the Bees.

Brentford Preview

It is now just one defeat from their last five games and none in the last three for Brentford a run that has seen them move away from the relegation zone and sit 14th in the table.

The Bees have had a mixed bag of results in home games against sides in the top half of the table with two wins, two draws and two defeats from these 6 ties. They do have the seventh best-ranked home defence so will look to keep things tight here.

Recent Brentford games tend to go over 2.5 goals with this being the case in six of their last nine though four of their five at home to sides in the top ten of the table have actually gone under 2.5 goals

Newcastle United Preview

Just one win from their last four games in all competitions represents something of a mini-crisis for Newcastle at the moment. The Magpies have taken just three points from the last nine available a run that has allowed the closing pack to cut the gap to second.

It was a 1-0 loss at Blackburn last time out on the road for the North East side which was only their third away defeat of the season, and they're still the best ranked away team in the Championship this season with a plus 13 goal difference in these games.

The Magpies are usually considered a good side to be on for the goals market, but just one of their last five league games has gone over 2,5 goals and in just one of six matches away to sides in the top 16 of the table.

Brentford Team News

Dean Smith is like to be missing a quintet of players as Andreas Bjelland (ankle), Alan Judge (broken leg), Callum Elder (knee), Lewis Macleod (knee) and Rico Henry (shoulder) are all unlikely to be available. Scott Hogan was at the time of writing weighing up a move to Premier League side West Ham.

 

 

Newcastle Team News

Aleksandar Mitrovic will be missing for a few weeks after suffering a horrific knee injury against Birmingham last time out. Jesus Gamez (collarbone) and Rolando Aarons (toe) are out while Mo Diame is on the Africa Cup of Nations duty and Jonjo Shelvey is suspended.

Betting Predictions and Tips

Newcastle might appeal to some at close to even money, though a few shaky performances in recent weeks means I will be looking elsewhere for my bets on this game.

Under 2.5 goals looks worth siding with as two of the last three Newcastle games have ended 1-0, while Brentford might try to keep this as tight as they did in a 0-0 draw at home to Norwich recently.

This looks like the type of game that we could have to wait for goals as both sides feel each other out so take no goal before 29:00.
