Tip Leeds - Brentford
Prediction published on December 3, 2021 at 7:05 PM - Modified on December 3, 2021 at 8:05 PM
Leeds United’s win over Crystal Palace has lifted them further from the relegation zone as they continue to endure a tough start to the league campaign. They will hope for another leap when they play host to Brentford. 15th placed Leeds now have 15 points. Just one point and three places behind Brentford. Raphinha’s late penalty was all the difference in Leeds’ 1-0 win over Palace; it marked a fourth straight game in which they failed to hit more than a goal. They’ll still be glad to have registered a third win of the season in the league. Their last four home matches have produced under 2.5 goals though Leeds have scored in each of the last five.
Brentford’s joy in beating Everton was short lived; they suffered a 2-0 loss to Tottenham right after. After a fine start to the season, they have been poor in recent matches, and going to this game, they have just one clean sheet in the last five. In the four matches that they’ve conceded it has been two or more goals but they have scored more than a goal in just one of the last five. Both teams have scored in three of their last five matches and Brentford have managed to score in four of the five matches. Away from home, they are winless in three straight games and have no clean sheet in the last five.
