Brentford vs Barnet Betting Preview – 05/02/2019

Brentford vs Barnet

Barnet makes the journey over to Griffin Park this Tuesday to take on Brentford in their Fourth Round replay in the FA Cup. the first meeting between these two sides provided a thrilling game of football which saw six goals scored in total, split evenly 3-3 and we are expecting another similar outcome on Tuesday. The hosts are not having their finest season in the Championship, with them sat down in 17th. But with their opponents competing in the Conference Premier, they should really be securing a simple win. Barnet’s league campaign has held little success for them as well, making this a huge game for the underdogs.

Brentford returns to their Griffin Park Stadium for this fixture and this may be the boost they need to secure the win on Tuesday, as they have been in fine form whilst playing at home. The Bees are unbeaten in their last five home games, with them securing four wins and one draw. Their latest fixture saw them go up against Blackburn Rovers and seven goals later they took the three points winning 5-2. This win means that the hosts are now unbeaten in nine games putting them in a good shape to secure the win on Tuesday. SkyBet has Brentford to win priced at 2/11 and Brentford to win with a -2 handicap at 5/4.

It has been a tough season for Thomas Frank and Co, but their improved recent may be their chance to climb further up the table. With 48 goals scored this season, Brentford are one of their higher scoring sides in the league but their leaky defence has held them back. Over the last five games, they have been especially clinical in front of goal with them racking up 16 goals which have helped them outscore their opponents. Only one of those five games has seen them score less than three goals. Bet365 has the hosts to score over 2.5 goals priced at 4/5.  

Barnet surprised everyone in the first meeting between these sides and will be hoping for some more FA Cup magic this Tuesday. Darren Currie’s men are not having the strongest season in the league with them sat down in 17th, however, they do have five games in hand which could easily seem them jump up around ten places in the table. Their previous fixture saw them draw 3-3 with Carshalton Athletic in the FA Trophy. Betway has Barnet to secure the win priced at a huge 16/1.

Currie’s men have been very weak defensively this season, with them conceding 32 goals and with only 26 scored, it has left little chance of success. Barnet’s last two games have both ended with over 5.5 goals scored and Betway are offering 11/10 for there to be over 3.5 in this meeting. Shaquile Coulthirst is his sides top goalscorer this season, with eight goals and the forward also bagged a brace against Brentford in the previous meeting. Bet365 has him to score anytime priced at 9/2.
