- Brentford have drawn five of their last seven fixtures at Griffin Park.
- The Bees are unbeaten in their last 14 Championship matches (W7, D7).
- Bournemouth have lost just one of their ten away games this term, drawing six.
- Both sides go into this week’s fixture level on 38 points, although third-placed Bournemouth have a game in hand.
Both Sides Difficult to Oppose at Griffin Park
This is by far the standout clash amongst the midweek Championship fixtures and both sides are extremely difficult to oppose, with Brentford unbeaten in 14 league games (W7, D7) and Bournemouth defeated just once in ten away trips this term (W3, D6).
Only goal difference and a game in hand for Bournemouth separate the teams in the current league standings, with both just a point behind second-placed Swansea and five behind leaders Norwich.
A win for either club this Wednesday would be absolutely massive in terms of the overall promotion race this season, however a point apiece would likely satisfy both managers and that’s the way we see this one going.
Neither team will want to get beat here which should lead to a pretty cagey affair and the stats also point towards the spoils being shared. Brentford have lost just once at home and have drawn five of their last seven at Griffin Park, while six of Bournemouth’s ten outings on the road have also ended all square.
A draw looks the best bet for small stakes with nothing to split the teams based on the table and what we’ve seen so far this term and 1-1 is the pick in the correct score market, with each side failing to net on just four occasions this season.
