Brentford seeks European chances

Brentford seeks European chances

Brentford held on European chances by winning against Aston Villa in an important match for both squads. Brentford is currently a team who is not secured for a spot in Europe, as they are sitting at the ninth. The Villa on the other hand is at the sixth, and is most likely to enter the European stage. This makes Brentford more eager to win in this match, as they are aiming to cut deficit against Aston Villa. However, these two teams are coming in this match from different results. While the Villa is from a victory on their last match, Brentford suffered a disappointing loss. Nonetheless, both teams are aiming for wins here to both improve their records. This meeting will be on April 22, 2023, at 10:00 PM (GMT+8), with Brentford as hosts.

Surprisingly, these two teams only played 17 matches across all competitions. From those 17 games, the visitors are with an advantage, winning seven matches. The visitors on the other hand only won four games, while the remaining six all ended in draws. However, the hosts are unbeaten in their last four matches against the visitors in the league. This is after the hosts ran of three losses in their first three games against the visitors. The visitors on the other hand are doing quite well in their away matches this season. They were able to earn seven points from their last three away matches in the league. Moreover, the visitors win their reverse fixture with a score line of 4-0.

Brentford are currently sitting at the ninth of the league table with 43 points across their names. Although they are at the ninth in the standings, they remain to be hopeful for their chances in the European stage. However, since they are four points behind from the eighth place, a win would only make them retain their spots. Unfortunately, they are from a 2-0 loss against the Wolves coming into this match. It was a disappointing loss for them, as they now aim to bounce back in this match. Brentford is a team who is capable of upsetting powerful teams. Additionally, playing at home is really an advantage for Brentford, as they have been playing impressively at home. With that, they are aiming to be as impressive they were at the past, as they are playing at home here.

The starting XI of Brentford for this match might be a little different from their last match due to injuries. While Kristoffer Ajer, and Keane Lewis-Potter both remains unavailable here. Pontus Jansson on the other hand is unavailable here due to his thigh injury, ending his season with this squad.

The Villa on the other hand is currently sitting at the sixth of the league table with 50 points across their names. A win in this match could bring them at the fifth of the league table with 53 points, which they are aiming for. They are fortunate that after a slow start in their campaign, they were able to improve a lot, thus their current standings. In fact, they are from a 3-0 win against Newcastle United on their last match. As they are coming in this important match, they are hoping to achieve the same result here. The Villa’s improvement this season is led by their manager, Unai Emery. For their squad, it was Ollie Watkins who have been leading them recently. He has been in an excellent form this season, so it is expected for him to lead in this match as well.

Boubacar Kamara, and Philippe Coutinho are both expected to return in this match, just in-time for this game. Matty Cash on the other hand is hopeful to be back here in this important game. Unfortunately, Leon Bailey is expected to miss this match against.
