Brentford hosts Birmingham City in round 40 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Tuesday, April 6th at Brentford Community Stadium (London)
Brentford nearly made it to the Premier League in the previous season. It seemed that Thomas Frank's charges will take a step forward, which will be decisive. The Bees showed themselves well in the cups and, most importantly, were among the leaders in the Championship standings. But lately, Brentford has completely lost shape. First, there were three defeats in a row in mid-February. And then the Bees managed to score only six points in the last five matches. Yes, they lost only once in seven rounds (a 0-1 defeat to the undisputed leader of the division, Norwich). But there are too many draws. After a pause, there was only a draw with the modest Huddersfield on Saturday.

Birmingham cannot boast of perfect results in the current season. However, this glorious team that won the cup not so long ago has already taught the fans to rejoice on minimal occasions. Now Lee Bowyer is trying to save a place for it in the Championship. And there is something to be happy about - back in March, after two defeats in a row, Birmingham was able to gain victory in the match versus Reading. After that, there was another 0-3 defeat, but then the Blues were visiting Watford, which is striving to return to the Premier League. However, after the break for the matches of national teams, Birmingham put the squeeze on Swansea at home (don’t forget that the Swans are also among the leaders). In the very ending, the Blues managed to earn a penalty, which was coolly converted by Hogan. As a result, they broke away from the relegation zone even further. But it's too early to relax.
Birmingham has not lost to Brentford in five consecutive matches. And the Blues even defeated the Bees in the first game of the current season (1-0). By the way, it is noteworthy that all those meetings were not particularly spectacular, as the teams scored a maximum of two goals. Brentford is considered by experts to be the undisputed favorite. But Birmingham can stop an opponent who is in a rather bad shape, so we will focus on the option with Under 2.5 goals scored.
Prediction for the match: Under 2.5 goals scored
