Brentford vs Swansea City Match Analysis and Prediction

A spot in the Premier League promotion bid comes alive this weekend as Brentford have to battle Swansea City for it. The match schedules for Saturday at Wembley Stadium with kickoff at 5 pm.

The Bees made a triumphant comeback in the second league to see off Bournemouth in the last four. On the other hand, Swansea City completed their second league win against Barnsley to make the finals.

Thomas Flank and many other Bees fans felt nostalgia from last year’s tie to West Brom when they went 2-0 down to Bournemouth.

A golden ticket presented itself when the Cherries went ten men down. Flank’s men charged back in a significant triumphant comeback to see off the game 3-1. The win saw the Bees claim their second successive playoff final.

Moreover, last season’s loss in the finals nearly tainted their start to the season. However, the side managed to pick themselves up to qualify deservingly for a spot at the Wembley Stadium.

Nonetheless, a remarkable campaign saw a 21-match unbeaten streak for the London outfit to fight for a spot in the automatic promotion.

On the other hand, Swansea were solid contenders for a top-two finish. The Swans hold the best defensive record in the division. However, Steve Cooper suffered a poor end to the season while picking six defeats in the final 11 games.
