Brentford vs. Bournemouth Match Analysis and Prediction

Brentford needs to overturn a 1-0 deficit this weekend in the second leg of the Championship playoffs against Bournemouth. The match schedules for Saturday at the Brentford Community Stadium, with kickoff at 2:30 pm.

Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld proved the difference in the first leg at the Vitality Stadium on Monday night. It gives the Cherries a slight advantage while heading into Saturday’s reverse fixture.

Before the first leg clash at South Coast, the Bees were favorites, especially after stringing a 12 unbeaten streak in the Championship. Moreover, their opponents had a hard end to the season with three successive defeats.

Ivan Toney’s impressive form for the opponents could not win after failing to equalize some clear-cut chances. A lot is riding on this match, with the Bees looking at another second-season loss in the playoffs.

However, form went out of the window in the EFL showdown. Furthermore, a lack of ruthlessness in the final third might prove costly for the Bees. Jonathan Woodgate’s side knows that there is much going that depends on the first leg win.

Arnaut Danjuma took his goal tally to 16 goals, with the first leg goal proving the difference at home. It comes after the Dutch international failed to find the back of the net on two occasions.

Brentford Team News

We expect a three at the back defensive system, with other changes expected in the final third. Bryan Mbumo might get the nod over Sergi Canos at the left wing-back. Rick Henry is back in contention for a spot after recovering from a hamstring injury. Saman Ghoddos could adapt a creative role to fill in behind Ivan Toney. On the other hand, the move might get Marcus Forsss to get dropped to the substitute’s bench.
