Brentford vs Fulham: Preview and Prediction

Brentford will host Fulham at the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday, looking to bounce back from the disappointing defeat to Everton.

Brentford are unbeaten in five of the last six matches, and they will be eager to pick up a positive result when they welcome Fulham to the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Fulham have been quite inconsistent in their recent outings, and they have picked up just one win from the last six Premier League games. Matches between these two London clubs have been evenly matched, and this one could be another cracking contest.

Neither side are in impressive form right now, and they will be desperate to bounce back with a strong performance this weekend. It will be interesting to see who comes out on top. The last six matches between these two sides have seen both teams win three each.

Brentford will look to pick up all three points here, and they will need their star striker Ivan Toney to step up and produce a strong performance here. The 28-year-old is one of the best strikers in the Premier League, and he could take advantage of Fulham’s defensive vulnerabilities and punish them. Toney will look to help Brentford finish the season strongly, and he is our key player to watch out for.


Brentford 1-1 Fulham

Brentford have been very difficult to beat in recent weeks, and they are likely to put up another strong performance here. Fulham have not been at their best, and this will be a tricky contest for them. The two teams are quite evenly matched, and it will not be a surprise if they end up cancelling each other out. A 1-1 draw seems quite likely.
