Brentford on the slide
Newly-promoted Brentford have already won plenty of admirers this season for their slick passing football and front-foot attitude, though the Bees have lost their sting in recent weeks and they head into Saturday’s clash with Norwich on the back of three straight defeats.
Brentford’s 3-1 reverse at Burnley last time out was arguably their worst performance of the campaign so far and their haul of just two goals from their last three fixtures points to problems at the business end of the pitch.
A date with bottom club Norwich City offers Thomas Frank’s charges an opportunity to halt their slide however, and Brentford will start the game determined to secure their fourth Premier League victory of the season.
Norwich lose again
Norwich City remain rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table this week after yet another disappointing display against Leeds on Sunday.
The Yorkshireman had been struggling themselves before their trip to Carrow Road, though goals quickfire second half goals from Raphinha and Rodrigo left the Canaries in a flap.
Daniel Farke’s beleaguered troops looked destined for a season of struggle and Norwich are already a massive eight points from safety even though we are still in the campaign’s opening exchanges.
Brentford vs Norwich City Predictions
Brentford’s standards have slipped of late, as evidenced by their run of three defeats on the spin, though we’re backing the Bees to land three points against a hapless Norwich City outfit on Saturday.
The Canaries’ sequence of eight defeats in ten matches has left confidence in their ranks at a low ebb and having lost an abject 13 of their last 15 Premier League away games since December 2019, we’re tipping City to come up short on the road again.
Elsewhere, a stake on under 2.5 goals to be scored this weekend could also return dividends. Brentford’s output in the final third has regressed and their two-goal haul from their last three fixtures suggests they lack the firepower to blow Norwich away on Saturday.
Both of the clubs’ meetings in the Championship last term produced two or fewer goals and we expect that pattern to continue this weekend.
