Brentford’s Atlantic Cup campaign gets under way on Thursday evening when they take on Breiðablik at the Estádio Algarve in a 7:30pm kick-off in Portugal.
The Bees travel as a Brentford XI with Neil MacFarlane’s B Team players all flying out to Portugal to be involved over the course of the three games.
Breiðablik arrive at the tournament as part of their preparations for their league campaign in April.
Their 2021 campaign saw them finish second in their league table, just one point behind the winners Víkingur Reykjavík. After their 22 games they collected 47 points with 15 wins, two losses and five defeats.
They have recently been taking part in Fótbolti.net Cup in Iceland where they have claimed three wins against, Keflavik, Leiknir Reykjavik and HK. They then lost their last match to Stjarnan 3-1 away from home.
The side were involved in the early stages of the Europa Conference League where they beat the likes of Racing Union and Austria Wien before they exited at the Third Qualifying Round stage against Aberdeen.
The B Team have been in fantastic form of late and go into the tournament having been involved in cup competitions in recent weeks. They have beaten Hanwell Town and Harrow Borough in the Middlesex Senior Cup and the London Senior Cup respectively. Prior to that, they beat National League side Maidenhead United 5-1 and they are unbeaten since the middle of November when they were beaten by Rodina Moscow whilst the side were on tour in Cyprus.
Supporters will be able to gain entry to the fixtures for 10 euros per game which can be paid on the gate. Anyone wishing to attend the Atlantic Cup this year will have to prove they have been double vaccinated unless medically exempt. If you are unable to present when asked to do so, entry to the stadium will be declined.
