Tip Brentford - Oldham Athletic

Prediction published on September 19, 2021 at 8:27 PM - Modified on September 19, 2021 at 8:29 PM

Brentford are coming from a 2-0 win over Wolves and will be looking to book their place in the next round of the League Cup as they play host to League one side Oldham Athletic. The last time these two sides faced off was in 2014 in League One and Brentford have clearly made massive steps. The hosts go to this game having lost just once in their six matches this season and have scored two or more goals in three of their last six matches. Brentford have faced much stronger teams this season and they go to this game having trailed at half time in just one of six games. At home, they’ve lost once in 13 and they have three straight wins at home in the League Cup. They go here having scored two or more goals in three of their last five matches in the League Cup.

Oldham are coming from a 0-0 draw with Hartlepool United, marking a third straight winless outing and as many games without a goal. They’ve actually failed to score more than a goal in their last four matches, and are winless in their last six matches against Brentford, losing five. Oldham haven’t led at half time in four of their last five matches and have managed just two clean sheets in the last five matches. In their last five away matches, they have four losses.
