Brentford vs Bournemouth: Prediction and Betting Tips

11:30, May 22 2021
Brentford vs Bournemouth prediction for Saturday’s Championship promotion play-off semi-final second leg clash at Brentford Community Stadium in London. After losing the first leg 1-0, Brentford host Bournemouth in a chance for both teams to reach the playoff final. Follow on for our free prediction and betting tips.

Brentford to get their end of season form back

Brentford finished third in the English Championship regular season after a remarkable finish to the season which saw The Bees win their last four matches and not lose a game in their last 12 matches with Bournemouth being one of their casualties in that run. This is Brentford’s tenth attempt to win promotion through the playoffs but they have failed in all of them.

In the 1st leg of the semi-final in Bournemouth, Brentford were the better side in terms of ball possession with 58%. Coach Frank Thomas’s team managed 11 goal attempts but just one of them was on target. Brentford goalkeeper Raya had three crucial saves that kept his team not losing by a bigger margin which would have made their task even more unattainable in the second leg.

Bournemouth two matches away from a PL return

It was a somewhat surprising result by Bournemouth who finished sixth in the regular season of the Championship beating Brentford 1-0 in the first leg. The Cherries will have to play for a draw at least to qualify for the final of the play-offs at Wembley. Bournemouth ended the regular season with three straight losses but they overcame that in the first leg.

Defensively, coach Jonathan Woodgate needs to maintain their first-leg performance. The Bees had just one clean sheet in eight matches prior to their match at Vitality Stadium. Bournemouth have conceded in every game of their last four away games despite having won three of them. Woodgate will rely on his attack though as they have scored in 15 of their last 18 matches.

Key Stats

  • Brentford have won three of the last four H2H matches
  • Brentford have won three of their last four away games
  • Bournemouth have won four of their last five away games
  • Brentford have scored in four of their last five home games
  • Bournemouth have scored in four of their last five away games

Brentford vs Bournemouth Prediction

Last season Brentford made it to the Play-off final and lost to Fulham. That was the tenth time Brentford lose in the promotion play-offs. They look a better side this season and with coach Frank Thomas will look to pass the Bournemouth hurdle to the final again.

Bournemouth were relegated from the Premier League last season. The cherries hope to make it back to the top flight the first time asking.

It’s a difficult one to call! For our first prediction we will back a home win as we think despite losing the first game, Brentford are capable of winning in the return leg. In our second prediction, we are playing it safe and backing an away win or draw as the odds are quite high for that market and there is a possibility to happen!
