Brentford vs Arsenal: Prediction and Betting Tips
Brentford full of confidence ahead of Premier League opener
After a 74 year wait, Brentford are finally back in the English top division. The Bees last played in the first division back in 1947. Hence they have never played in the Premier League as it was called since 1992. Moreover, it took Brentford nine heart-breaking playoff failures before reaching their goal of playing in England’s top flight.
Manager Thomas Frank’s team played their last promotion playoff game against Swansea and beat them 2-0 at Wembley. Moving on, Brentford had very impressive preseason-friendly results. Their most impressive was their last one where they beat Valencia 2-1. Also, a draw against Manchester United was a morale-boosting affair for the Premier League newcomers.
Brentford Key points
- Brentford won seven of their last ten matches
- The Bees have scored in eight of their last ten matches
- Thomas Frank’s team had six clean sheets in ten matches
Arsenal looking for a winning start
Without European football for the first time in 26 years, Arsenal are expected to do much better than last season. The Gunners had one of their worst seasons in more than a decade. Accordingly, Arteta was given a second chance to steady things up at the Emirates. Consequently, the Spaniard signed some new faces into the Gunners’ squad.
However, Arteta’s team failed to impress in their last two pre-season friendlies. The Gunners lost to London rivals Tottenham and Chelsea. Conversely, Arsenal’s undefeated away run of five wins and two draws is bettered only by Manchester United. Adding to that, Arsenal didn’t concede a single goal against last season’s promoted teams on the road.
Arsenal Key Points
- Arsenal have won their last four competitive games
- The Gunners have five clean sheets in ten competitive matches
- Arteta’s team’s four of last ten matches saw BTTS
Brentford vs Arsenal Prediction
Certainly, the pre-season results of Brentford will give them a huge boost ahead of their Premier League opener. But it’s a different story when playing Arsenal in the Premier League itself.
Brentford did play three PL teams over six fixtures in cup competitions and registered three wins. That means that Thomas Franck’s team can be very dangerous and they are not here to make up numbers.
The Gunners on the other hand have one intention this season, to win as much as possible. They have to take the positives of last season which was collecting the most points behind Manchester City since Boxing day.
A win for Arsenal has odds of 1.89 at Vbet which is generous and very likely to happen. In addition, Brentford might still be nervous from the occasion in which the Gunners have all the experience needed.
