Next Up: Leeds United

Second away game in less than 72 hours for Bees

3 December 2021

Brentford continue on their run of ten matches in five weeks with a second consecutive game away from home. The Bees face Leeds United in Yorkshire on Sunday, 5 December. The match will kick-off at 2pm at Elland Road.

Brentford go in to the game on the back of defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last night. The Bees fell behind when the ball cannoned in, unfortunately, off Sergi Canós. Tottenham added a second to seal the win after half time.

The win came on the back of Brentford taking four points from their previous two games. A draw at Newcastle United was followed by a victory over Everton, before the loss in North London. The defeat was only the second for Brentford away from home this season in seven games.

Defeat leaves Brentford 12th in the Premier League table after 14 games. The Bees are below Crystal Palace on goal difference but above Aston Villa on the same differential. Brentford sit in the middle of a group of 13 teams separated by nine points in the table.

Leeds are also in that group. They are three places and one point behind The Bees. They beat Palace 1-0 on Tuesday thanks to a late penalty and are on a run of one defeat in six. They have lost at home to Liverpool and West Ham United this season but have beaten Palace and Watford on their own turf, both 1-0.

The teams last met in the 2019/20 season, which was interrupted and extended by the Covid-19 outbreak. Leeds won the Sky Bet Championship title that season with Brentford finishing third and losing the Play-Off Final. Leeds won 1-0 at Elland Road that season and the teams drew 1-1 in West London.

The teams had met in six straight seasons before last term. Brentford won five of the 12 games between the teams with Leeds winning three. All three of those wins did come at Elland Road and Brentford have not been victorious in their last five visits.
