Bournemouth vs Brentford Match Analysis and Prediction

Hopes of life in the Premier League comes alive this week in the first leg of the Championship play-off semi-finals. Bournemouth welcomes Brentford at the Vitality Stadium on Monday with a kickoff at 8 pm.

It is a contrasting match with the home side ending their season with three successive defeats. On the other hand, Brentford is currently on a 12 unbeaten match run in the second tier.

Brentford was among the favourites last season to promote the Premier League after an impressive season in the second tier. However, a defeat to Fulham left the side with another year to fight for another comeback. Their eliminators faced the axe from the Premier League last week.

However, Thomas Frank knows that form comes out of the question. Rival teams will not be frightened, with the Bees picking up 24 points from 12 games. Ivan Toney has been the goal-scoring machine at the end while shipping 31 goals. Bryan Mbuemo is another threat for the visitors with three goals in the last four outings.

In contrast, Bournemouth had a sour end to the season while picking three successive defeats. It followed with a loss to opponents Brentford, followed with others to Wycombe Wanderers and Stoke City.

Jonathan Woodgate was keen on a return for the Cherries to England’s top flight. However, there is an uphill task ahead.
