Brentford vs Liverpool. Shape of the Teams

On Saturday, the lacklustre Brentford will take on Premier League leaders Liverpool. 

Thomas Frank’s men are 14th in the Premier League table and only six points above the relegation zone. 

The Bees have been suffering from an injury plague during this campaign, affecting their performance. In the last round, Brentford secured a morale-boosting 0-2 victory against Wolves on the road. However, before that game, they conceded two defeats against Manchester City (1-3) and Tottenham Hotspur (3-2).

As Brentford’s lineup woes continue, they will have to start this match without key defenders Rico Henry and Aaron Hickey, while offensively lacking the firepower from Bryan Mbeumo and Kevin Schade.

On the other hand, Liverpool continues to navigate the tightrope at the summit of the Premier League, with Manchester City and Arsenal hot on their heels. 

Bouncing back from the setback in the away game against Arsenal (3-1), they beat Burnley 3-1 at home in their last fixture.

Liverpool has also been facing injuries, with Joël Matip, Dominik Szoboszlai, Trent Alexander-Arnold, and Thiago all sidelined. However, the anticipated return of Mohamed Salah, who is training individually, provides a silver lining and added attacking potential. Furthermore, Alisson is back after illness, Ibrahima Konate returns from suspension, and Conor Bradley is back in the squad after missing two matches.

Brentford vs Liverpool Main Match Info

Brentford vs Liverpool Prediction, Odds

In the Premier League, it is common for teams to score a lot of corners, with matches frequently ending with 10 corners or more. We will likely see this trend continue in the clash between Liverpool and Brentford.

The Red’s offensive strategy extensively utilizes the wings, with dynamic attacks from both flanks. Despite Mohamed Salah’s potential absence, Luis Díaz and Diogo Jota are effective from their respective wings.

I think Jürgen Klopp’s side will assert their dominance early on. From there, they will control the game and put Brentford under pressure.

Brentford statistically concedes an average of 5.9 corners per game. This indicates that their opponents often find opportunities to push forward and win corners. 

On the other hand, Liverpool’s average of 6.45 corners obtained per game demonstrates their proficiency in generating set-piece opportunities.

Given these statistics, I think it is likely that Liverpool will achieve over 5.5 corners in this game. 

Brentford vs Liverpool Betting Tip

Brentford has been regularly scoring 1 to 2 goals per game after the return of Ivan Toney. Not so long ago, Thomas Frank’s team scored a great goal against Manchester City on their home turf. In this game, Brentford showcased their ability to launch quick vertical attacks, resulting in a skillful opening of Toney in the offensive line. 

In their recent encounter with Wolverhampton, Brentford employed an aggressive pressing strategy, forcing the opponent to make mistakes. This assertive approach  directly contributed to one of their two goals, again with Toney marking his presence on the score sheet.

Despite their strong performance, Liverpool have shown occasional lapses in their defence, presenting Brentford with opportunities to score.

At the same time, Frank’s team has a tendency to concede 2 to 3 goals in nearly every match, a weakness Liverpool is well-positioned to exploit. Given Liverpool’s potent attack, they will likely capitalize on any of Brentford’s defensive shortcomings during the game.

The trend of both teams finding the back of the net is also evidenced by the statistics of the two previous head-to-head meetings between Brentford and Liverpool at the Community Stadium. Thomas Frank’s team won with a score of 3-1 and also held Liverpool to a 3-3 draw.

However, I don’t expect the hosts to win in the upcoming match. Brentford have displayed inconsistent form in the current season and were inferior in most of their games.
