Betting Preview: Swansea City

Principle Partners Leo Vegas Sport UK take a look at today's match markets

17 February 2019

A tasty all-Championship FA Cup clash is next for Brentford as the Bees head to Wales to face Swansea in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup.

Brentford cruised past Barnet in the Fourth Round replay and are priced at 17/2 to win 1-0 at Swansea with LeoVegas SPORT.

Our last outing was a solid home victory over Dean Smith's Aston Villa. Neal Maupay handed Brentford the three points with a last-ditch winner to push the Bees up into 15thplace, only four points away from the top 10. Typically, perhaps, Brentford enjoyed more possession and managed 23 attempts over the 90 minutes. It was a professional display from Frank's men who continue to move from strength to strength, bouncing back from the narrow defeat at Forest in good fashion.

Swansea brushed Gillingham aside in the 4th round, winning 4-1, however fell to a 2-1 defeat to league leaders Leeds in their last outing midweek. Their inconsistency makes the Swans hard to predict as we frankly don't know which side will show up. Four points divide the teams in the Championship, but these stats often go out of the window as the magic of the Cup outshines the form guide.

Said Benrahma shone against Villa, creating six chances including the winning goal, and the Man of the Match is priced at 10/3 to score at any time at Swansea. Neal Maupay is always favourite to score first, and we've got him priced at 22/5.

Leo's Prediction: Swansea 0-1 Brentford

Goal scorer: Said Benrahma, priced at 17/2 to score first
