Brentford vs Bournemouth Match Preview and Team News
With Brentford hosting this leg, they’ll be hoping to overturn their away loss. Arnaut Groeneveld scored the only goal separating these sides, and Brentford, starting on a back foot, will seek a repeat of last season when they overturned a 1-0 loss to Swansea to win 3-1 advance to the final. However, they fell 2-1 to Fulham in the final at Wembley. Brentford is the unluckiest side when it comes to the playoffs system; they’ve never won promotion through it, and this is the 10th attempt. They finished the regular season unbeaten in 12 matches, and among the teams, they beat in the six wins therein was Bournemouth. However, the playoffs have proven over years that recent form doesn’t matter much, but after losing away from home, they will be hoping for home comforts. Jordan Thompson has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Jacob Brown is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
Bournemouth had a torrid ending to the season, finishing with three straight losses, but were fast starters in the playoffs, securing this slim lead they take to Brentford. In the regular season, they lost both matches against Brentford, and their loss to Brentford in the 2015 season of the Championship makes it three straight losses before this playoff semi-final. Though their form against Brentford will be a concern in the lead, with seven wins in 10 matches towards the end of the regular season, they will be confident. In their last 18 games, Bournemouth failed to score in just three, and they have the quality in attack, going here knowing well that a goal will destabilize Brentford. David Brooks is a guy who makes a lot of trouble for the opponent on the left flank. He has speed and an excellent one-on-one game. Arnaut Danjuma enjoys the pitch, and when he receives the ball and goes towards the goal, the opponent has problems. He is strong, and it is challenging to keep this guy.
