A new manager, a new era and a home game to get the ball rolling as Thomas Frank takes over following Dean Smith’s departure to Aston Villa. It’s Bristol City up next for the Bees, and we’ve got Brentford to win both halves priced at 7/2 at LeoVegas SPORT.
Frank wants to create “memorable moments” together with the fans and what better way to start than with a home victory against a team sitting only two points behind Brentford in the Championship.
Promoting from within fits the club DNA well, and Frank is a man who knows his club inside out already so we can expect a healthy transition during next few weeks. He slots into the head coach role after two years as Smith’s assistant and inherits a tightly knit group. He’ll have in-form attackers Neal Maupay and Ollie Watkins to rely on, with the French forward priced at 3/1 to score first.
Brentford have only lost two games out of 12 this season in the Sky Bet Championship, and with the managerial swap coming during the international break the club had that brief respite to absorb all the changes and prepare for the game. Frank’s men face a Bristol side who are without a win in five and a home victory to nil is priced at 43/20.
Leo’s Tip: The players will be keen to impress their new manager, so we can expect an attacking performance from the Bees. A 3-0 victory is priced at 12/1.
