Brentford vs Cardiff – Championship: Cardiff on a fantastic moment of form travels to Brentford’s stadium where the hosts have lost only twice.
With a Brentford playing away from home 3 consecutive times, they have now, on this match that had been rescheduled, the chance to play in front of their fans, where they usually perform better.
With 30 goals scored playing at home and a total of 52 scored in the league so far, they are significantly better playing at home, with an average of 1.76 goals scored per match, and the team has only failed to score 3 times at home.
Their defence gets better, with 17 of their 42 goals conceded being conceded at home, and they concede on average 1 goal per match, having kept a clean sheet in 6 of their 17 matches played at home.
On their last 4 matches at home, they have 2 victories, against weak teams, and then they’ve lost to Norwich and have tied with Preston.
With 7 victories on their last 8 matches, they’ve only drawn away from home at Milwall that, with the exception of this Cardiff, has the best streak of results in the league of the last 8 matches, having played 5 of them at home and 3 of them away.
They are unbeaten for 10 matches, scoring in each of their last 8 matches, and scoring in 76% of their away matches. They only failed to score away from home on 4 occasions, with the last time being against Sheffield Untied.
They have the best defence in the league with 30 goals conceded, 17 of them away from home, which results on an average of 1 goal conceded per match.
With 20 goals scored away from home, they have 10 less goals scored than they have at home, which means they are less productive on the road, and they have won 6 of those 17 matches by the minimum margin.
Brentford vs Cardiff – Betting Tip and Prediction:
Considering Cardiff’s moment of form, who are motivated, got close to the leaders on the last round and, as Mourinho says, victories make players forget about fatigue, and that will be the fuel for these visitors.
Brentford has a strong record at home. However, their attack at home will have difficulties repeating the battering they’ve applied to Birmingham by 5-0, being a team that struggles more against better organized teams, which means I expect a difficult match here.
Therefore, I’ll go with Cardiff DNB, taking advantage of their better form at the moment.
