In the English League Cup quarter-finals, Brentford host Chelsea. The Aristocrats have been at their best in recent matches. Will the home side be able to take on the favourites?Get Your Sign-Up Bonus!
Brentford played away to Stoke City in the English League Cup last 16. Thomas Frank’s side had a strong first half, scoring two goals. After the break, the team allowed their opponents to score once - a 2-1 win. The club’s last appearance in the EFL was on December 11. The Bees beat Watford 2-1 on home soil.
Chelsea’s last opponent in the tournament was Southampton. The game at Stamford Bridge proved to be quite tough for the Blues. The teams scored one goal apiece, and it was down to a penalty shoot-out in which Thomas Tuchel’s side was more accurate. In their last two games in the EFL, Chelsea dropped points to Everton (1-1) and Wolverhampton (0-0).
In the current season of the EPL, the teams have already had one face-to-face encounter. Thomas Tuchel’s away team was stronger than the Bees with a 1-0. In all competitions, the clubs have met in 15 matches. Brentford have won four games, while Chelsea have made it nine.
Expert Betting Tips
After a really strong start to the season and a dominant performance in the English league, Chelsea are in a slump. Thomas Tuchel’s side is far from their best playing conditions. In addition, the Brentford players will be better prepared for the upcoming game, as they have not played a game since December 11, while Chelsea managed to appear in two EPL meetings. The Aristocrats cannot boast the reliability in defensive action as they did in the first part of the campaign. For Brentford, the upcoming meeting will be a great opportunity to show their best. The Aristocrats have a very unpleasant trip to the Bees ahead of them. I suggest choosing the following lines:
- Total Over (2.5) goals for 2.00;
- Individual Total 1 Over (1.5) goals for 3.40;
- Brentford to score in the first half for 2.50.
