Brentford vs Liverpool
English Premier League
Date: Saturday 25th September 2021
Kick off at 17:30 UK/ 18:30 CET
Venue: Brentford Community Stadium.
Brentford have played some very good football considering they have just been newly promoted and have surprised some teams like they did when beating Arsenal earlier this season. But this game will be a huge test for the Bees.
Last weekend Brentford beat Wolves and that was the clubs 2nd win of the season. In midweek they sailed past Oldham winning 7-0 in the EFL Cup and it is always good to score goals, so the team come into this game feeling good.
Liverpool are looking good again and haven’t lost a game yet. The Reds are in 2nd place with 13 points from a possible 15. They had no problems in beating Crystal Palace last weekend winning that game 3-0 and they have won 2 games in a row since drawing 1-1 against Chelsea.
With Chelsea having to play the champions Manchester City there will be a sense within Liverpool that they have the opportunity to go top of the league with an expected win at the weekend.
Brentford vs Liverpool Head to Head
- The teams have not played each other for 32 years when they met in the FA Cup and Liverpool won 4-0.
- Their last league meeting took place in 1947 and that fixture when Brentford were at home finished 1-1.
- Brentford have not beaten Liverpool since 1938.
Brentford vs Liverpool Prediction
We can’t look for any patterns in the h2h of the teams because they have hardly played each other and we are also going back generations, football has changed too much.
We can only look on the evidence of what we have seen from both sides in the past six weeks. This suggests that Brentford are going to have their chances at home and will have a fantastic crowd to create a great atmosphere that is for sure.
Liverpool will hold all the cards though and while we could see a surprise we doubt it will happen. In truth a draw for the Reds would feel like a loss. Liverpool are in very good form and enjoying their football. We do expect to see a very entertaining game that is why both teams to score should be a consideration , but we only see one winner at the weekend.
