Brentford vs Sheffield United Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

This Friday afternoon (15:00) fixture features two sides just outside the top-six looking to make a late surge for the play-offs.  Here we have our match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Brentford are now three without a victory though they will hope that a 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough last time out will stop the mini slump.  They levelled up through a Lewis MacLeod goal in the 34th minute but that was the end of the scoring in a match that also saw them have Romaine Sawyers dismissed towards the end.

Sheffield United stretched their unbeaten run to three matches but will have been disappointed with a goalless home draw against Nottingham Forest.  There was little to choose between the two sides so a point was probably a fair result.

The reverse fixture came on the opening day of the season and it ended in a 1-0 victory for the home side.  Billy Sharp netted the only goal of the game though the expected goals data shows the Bees were the stronger side on that day.

 

Betting Tips and Predictions

It is hard to argue with the prices on offer which make the home team favourites while paying due respect to Sheffield United and suggest that there is little to choose between the pair which the table suggests is accurate.

Just two of the last eight for Brentford and none of the last three for the Blades have gone over 2.5 goals and I’m surprised them to see under 2.5 goals as the outsider of the two markets so this looks the bet.  If under 2.5 goals looks over-priced then so too does under 1.5 goals in what should be a tightly fought contested.

Brentford Preview

A run of just one point from their last three and four from their last five has seen the Bees losing a little ground to the top six.  They are eight points behind Middlesbrough though with eight games to go still have a small hope of making the play-offs.

At Griffin Park, their form has been mixed with two victories, two draws and two defeats from their last six.  Their last two and three of their last four in front of their own fans have seen both teams find the back of the net.

Around 63% of the league goals that Brentford have scored this season have come in the second 45 minutes.  Their defeat in the last meeting with the Blades was their only one from their last five head-to-heads.

 

Brentford Team News

Rico Henry (knee) is a long-term absentee while Andreas Bjelland (unknown) is a doubt.  Romaine Sawyers will miss the game through suspension.

 

Sheffield United Preview

The Blades have now taken eight points from their last five fixtures and are still in with a shout to make the end of season play-offs.  They sit in ninth place but that is just two points behind Middlesbrough in six with eight still to play.

Away from Bramall Lane, they have struggled of late with three defeats and just one victory from their last five.  A lack of road goals has been a recent issue as they have blanked in four of their last five.

Sheffield United have looked strong at the back having kept a clean sheet in each of their last three.  Five of their last seven and each of their last two battles with the Bees have gone under 2.5 goals.

Paul Coutts (broken leg) is out for the season though everyone else is available.
