Unlucky on visit to Elland Road

Brentford’s last match on Sunday seen them unlucky to come away with all three points as a last gasp equaliser from Patrick Bamford rescued a point for Leeds.

However, Brentford are showing improvements, after losing four straight they’ve now claimed five points from their last 12.

A win over Watford in the opening match of the week would see Brentford enter the top half of the table despite currently placing 17th in the form table.

Pressure on for Ranieri

The Hornets have lost six of their eight matches since Watford boss Claudio Ranieri joined the club, with two wins emphatic wins coming over Everton and Manchester United.

This places Watford last in the six-game form table with just three points from a possible 18. Watford have shown they can score goals against top teams in their last four matches.

However, Watford are inching closer to the relegation places and if they are to have any chance of avoiding the drop, Ranieri must shore up their generous defence.

Brentford vs Watford predictions

Two of the worst four teams on recent form go head-to-head, though Brentford are unlucky not to have two wins in their last three, showing they are improving.

As both teams have proven they can put the ball in the back of the net we also predict there will be over 2.5 goals.
