Brentford hosts Sheffield Wednesday in round 32 of the English Championship. The match will be played on Wednesday, February 24th at Brentford Community Stadium (London)
Brentford has recently received a lot of flattering reviews. The Bees were literally one step away from returning to the Premier League in the previous season. And they were good in the current one. For example, the representative of the Championship was stopped by Tottenham only in the semifinals of the League Cup. After October 24, there was a protracted streak without defeats in the Championship, which allowed Brentford to be in a pair of leaders, somewhere near Norwich. But there was a sharp decline in February. First, the favorite suddenly lost 0-2 to Barnsley at home, and then the unpleasant streak continued with defeats to QPR (1-2) and even Coventry (0-2). One more misfire and 2nd place will be lost.

In the previous season, Sheffield Wednesday held out in the middle of the standings and finished in 16th position. But now the team manages to gain positive results only sporadically. It seems that the long-awaited rise finally began in winter, when the Owls gained victories in six out of nine matches. But then the drive was lost. The federation postponed the game with Swansea, and, perhaps, it affected them. After all, the Owls lost to Stoke City and Birmingham in both last rounds with an identical 0-1 score. As a result, Sheffield Wednesday has only 28 points after 30 matches, outranking only the debutant Wycombe, which has already lost all chances of salvation. But the Owls can still fight: Birmingham, which is on the saving 21st place, is only three points ahead. Moreover, the Blues played one more match.
Brentford won both matches against Sheffield Wednesday in 2020. In March, the Bees hammered it at home (5:0), and the October match ended in 1:2 victory, with a double by Ivan Toney. In total, this striker, who is spending the 1st season for the Bees, has already scored 24 goals in the current season. Who else to beat, if not an outsider at home? We recommend betting on the hosts with a -1 handicap.
Prediction for the match: Brentford to win with -1.0 handicap
