Prediction published on December 7, 2021 at 3:23 AM - Modified on December 7, 2021 at 4:23 AM
Watford travel to the Brentford Community Stadium to take on the hosts in this Matchday 16 encounter. Brentford are currently in 13th position with 17 points while Watford are in 17th position with 13 points. Brentford halted a slide of three home defeats when they won their last home match 1-0 against Everton. They will be disappointed with their 2-2 draw in their last match when they allowed Leeds to equalize in the 95th minute. Bradford after a bright start to life in top flight football have started to struggle and have just one win in their last eight league matches. This poor run of form has seen them slip down the table and are just seven points above the relegation zone. This will be Bradford’s first ever meeting with Watford in the Premier League. Their last meeting was in the Championship which resulted in a 2-0 home win for Bradford.
Watford would have thought they turned their season around when they beat Manchester United 4-1 but a string of three defeats has placed them back near the relegation zone. They are just three points above the drop zone. They lost their last match 3-1 to Champions Manchester City but they did shows signs of an improvement. Watford have had two wins away from home this season but have also suffered five defeats on the road. They are yet to draw a match away from home. In their fifteen matches this season Watford have only had one draw.
