Swansea City vs Brentford Betting Preview – 17/02/2019

Swansea City vs Brentford

Brentford will travel over to Wales this Sunday to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea City in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Swansea City will be feeling confident that they can secure a spot in the next round of the competition after already beating their opponents this season. When these sides met in the Championship they provided a five-goal thriller which ended 3-2 in favour of the Swans. Despite needing a replay to see off Barnet in the previous round, Brentford should not be underestimated as they arrive in some of their best form this season.

Swansea City are having a mediocre season in the Championship this season as their current efforts have earned them a spot in 12th. Consistency has been a problem for Graham Potter’s side this season and has ultimately held them back. Over the last five games, they have picked up two wins, one draw and two losses. The Swans most recent fixture saw them go up against Leeds United who they lost 2-1 to. The hosts arrive as favourites for this fixture and can be backed with SkyBet for a price of 7/5.

Oliver McBurnie has been Swansea City’s go-to player when in the need for goals this season and the forward is by far their highest scoring player with 16 goals. Potter will need a big performance from McBurnie if they are to emerge victorious on Sunday and with the forward scoring six in his last six he should be raring to go. You can back McBurnie to score anytime on Sunday at a price of 6/4. Swansea have failed to keep a clean sheet in four of their last five matches and with Brentford scoring in all of their last eight fixtures, we plan goals from either side. Betway has BTTS at 4/6.

Brentford had found themselves down towards the relegation zone just a few months ago, but a change in their form has seen them rise up into 15th after 31 games played. Over the last 12 games for the Bees, they have suffered just one loss and have managed to secure seven wins. Brentford went up against Aston Villa in their previous game and picked up their tenth win of the season. Thomas Frank’s men arrive as the underdogs and can be backed with Bet365 for a price of 7/4.

The Bees success this season has come from their goal scoring ability which has helped them outscore their opponents on numerous occasions. Over the course of the season, they have racked up 50 goals which only five sides have sides have scored more. Neal Maupay has been in fine form this season bagging 21 goals and will look to provide his sides main attacking threat on Sunday. Betway has the forward to score anytime at 6/4.
