Brentford take on the visitors Crystal Palace in the round 3 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, August 26th at Brentford Community Stadium (London).
Brentford was competing for European competitions last season. The Bees have only spent 2 seasons in the Premier League so far. However, there are clear ambitions here, and it seems that the project's majority investor, Matthew Benham, is clearly looking to emulate Tony Bloom and his Brighton, whom he once worked for. In the previous season, Brentford managed to compete with the Seagulls for a long time, ultimately finishing just 3 points behind them and securing 9th place in the final league table. The new season began without Toney, who is banned until the new calendar year due to bribery charges. However, they managed to start with a 2-2 draw against the ambitious neighbor, Tottenham. Then came another London club, Fulham, and they managed to convincingly defeat them 3-0.

Crystal Palace are once again under the leadership of Hodgson. The Glassblowers, or rather their owner Steve Parish, tried to make changes, modernize the club. But after a promising first season following their return to London, Patrick Vieira's tenure went sour as he failed to find a way to break the winless streak. As a result, they returned to the tried-and-true method, bringing back the long-time manager, Old Roy, who achieved traditionally decent results. During the summer, their leader Zaha left the Eagles. Nonetheless, they managed to start with an away victory, albeit against newcomers Sheffield United. They couldn't secure a point against Arsenal, but it was only due to a single penalty goal.
Both matches from the previous season ended in identical draws - 1-1. At home, the Bees will rightfully be the favorites of the pair. However, the visitors have also had a good start, so let's bet that both teams will score in this match.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score – yes.
