We're still catching our breath after that entertaining first cup tie with Barnet follow by Saturday’s brilliant comeback victory over Blackburn Rovers.
After the 3-3 draw in the initial tie, a replay is required, and the Bees have sharpened their sting for the home clash. Brentford are now heavy favourites and you can get over 4.5 goals priced at almost 3/1 at LeoVegas SPORT.
Thomas Frank's men are in a rich vein of form and managed to get through January unbeaten. Brentford have scored 15 goals in their last four games, with goals coming from all over the park as the switch from midfield to attack happens so rapidly.
In the away fixture, Brentford amassed 27 attempts and outplayed their opponents, but being the FA Cup, no team is a push over and Barnet certainly did well to earn the replay. We sandwiched the win against Blackburn between the Cup ties, and what a game that turned out to be.
Blackburn stole a 2-0 lead after just seven minutes, but the Brentford heads refused to drop. A stunning second half saw four goals go our way, and the eventual 5-2 score line was far from flattering. The Bees attack peppered the Blackburn goal and we look forward to more of this attacking play in the FA Cup.
Neal Maupay and Ollie Watkins were superb against Blackburn, and you can get 17/1 on Maupay to open the scoring and Watkins to net the game’s final goal against Barnet.
Leo's Prediction: Brentford 4-1 Barnet which is priced at 14/1.
