Colchester take on the visitors Brentford in the 1/32-finals of English Football League Cup. The match will be played on Tuesday, August 23rd at Colchester Community Stadium (Colchester).
Colchester play in the Second League of England - the fourth most important championship of the country. There he did not qualify for promotion last season, this one also started uncertainly: they did not win in 4 of the 5 first matches, lost in 3 of them. At the previous round of the EFL Cup Colchester managed to get past Ipswich (1:0), but only because of the poor converting of the opponent, who managed to lose with advantage of 17:2 in shots on goal. If a club from the First League did this to the hosts, then Brentford will simply destroy them. Last season, Colchester were knocked out of the English cups by Wigan and Birmingham, the year before last by Reading. His major defeat to the representative from the Premier League seems inevitable.

Is Da Silva considered Brentford's main player? In the first 3 rounds, he spent only 60% of the possible playing time on the field. Jensen scored against Manchester United, but in 2 of 3 opening matches of the Premier League was replaced in the first hour. The same with Vissa and Yanelt, for example. Baptiste is definitely a substitute, but he played a lot at the training camp in the summer, and in each of the first 3 Premier League games he received 17+ minutes of time. The composition of Brentford is quite deep, almost any reservist can adequately replace the main player. This is Frank's football policy, which helps the team to successfully go through a long season. If Brentford put up substitutes in the cup, they will still play well.
Last season, Brentford went through 3 stages of the EFL Cup, winning each in regular time, the total goal difference is 13:2. In each of the last 3 seasons, Brentford went through the first stage of the FA Cup, the first stage of the EFL Cup - in the last 2. We expect them to do the same this season and beat the underdog.
Prediction for the match: Brentford to win.
