Brentford registered a total of 27 attempts in the League Cup win over Cheltenham, with Julian Jeanvier’s first half strike earning the 1-0 victory.
With passage to the Carabao Cup Third Round secured, another home win is the order of the weekend. Nottingham Forest are in town and after a convincing clean sheet on Tuesday, another home win to nil is priced at 9/4 at LeoVegas SPORT.
The Bees dominated the cup tie and, following a fantastic performance from man-of-the-match Said Benrahma, Brentford could have easily hit three or more. Benrahma, whose stepovers tangled up the Cheltenham back line, is priced at 9/5 to score at any time against Forest.
Griffin Park now welcomes Forest this afternoon. The Reds have only managed one win so far this season, coming against Reading. As Neal Maupay misses the game through suspension, Dean Smith can rely on Ollie Watkins, who is available at 5/1 to score first.
Brentford are averaging over two goals a game against Forest in recent meetings – scoring 11 goals in their last five clashes with the former champions of Europe! We’re offering 4/6 on Brentford to score over 1.5 goals and over 2.5 Bees goals is 12/5.
Leo’s Prediction: Brentford 2-0 Nottingham Forest, priced at 8/1
Goalscorer: This is a tough choice, but Ollie Watkins to score first at 5/1 is a good option
Leo’s Top Tip: Dean Smith is craving another clean sheet as confidence builds at the back. Both teams not to score is 6/5, but under 0.5 Forest goals is yours at 9/5.
