Brentford vs Watford Prediction: Premier League Match on 10.12.2021
There will be a first ever top-flight meeting in England taking place on Friday night, as Watford travel to the Brentford Community Centre desperately looking for the points to see them move clear of the drop zone.
Premier League Preview
Watford are moving ever closer to the bottom three in the Premier League, and could find themselves in the drop zone at the end of this round of fixtures. The Hornets are just the three points clear of the drop zone, but their inferior goal difference means that a win for Burnley this weekend will see them leapfrog their rivals should results go their way.
Watford’s change to Claudio Ranieri hasn’t worked out as well as board members would have been hoping, and the title-winning Italian could soon be under pressure if results fail to improve.
The Hornets have lost their last three games in the top-flight, and have conceded the third highest number of goals so far this season. However, unlike other sides towards the bottom of the standings, they are at least managing to score goals, as they have the best attacking record of the teams in the bottom eight places in the standings.
Brentford will be back in front of their home fans this weekend, as they look to win for a second time in four games. The Bees have lost just once in their previous four outings in the Premier League, but still sit just seven clear of the bottom three in the top-flight.
Brentford would have counted themselves as extremely unlucky not to have got a win in their last Premier League fixture, as Patrick Bamford scored a 95th minute equaliser. The Bees had turned the game on its head against Leeds, as they led 2-1 with half an hour remaining, but just couldn’t hang on to their advantage.
Brentford vs Watford Head to Head
Watford had enjoyed a 13-match unbeaten record against Brentford up until the second meeting between the two in the Championship last season. That run saw them go unbeaten since 1977. However, that long unbeaten run was ended last season, as Brentford won 2-0 against the Hornets.
Brentford vs Watford Prediction
This is a massive game for Watford, and Ranieri. However, from the performances that we have seen from the Hornets in recent weeks, we would expect Brentford to record a famous second straight win against Watford on Friday night.
