Brentford vs Leeds: Whites battling for survival

Kick-off: 1600, 22/05/2022

Stadium: Brentford Community Stadium

Leeds head into the final game of the Premier League season sitting in the bottom three and knowing even a win may not be enough to avoid relegation.

Everton secured their top-flight status by beating Crystal Palace on Thursday while Burnley climbed above Leeds on goal difference following a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa on the same night.

The Bees have won seven of their last 10 games but we will sit on the fence and predict a draw at 3.50 for our opening Brentford vs Leeds prediction.

Brentford Odds

A thrilling 3-2 victory at nine-man Everton last Sunday has given Brentford belief they can secure a top-half finish in their maiden Premier League campaign.

Seamus Coleman’s own goal hauled Brentford level after Everton had opened the scoring through Dominic Calvert-Lewin before having Jarrad Branthwaite sent off for a foul on Ivan Toney.

Though Richarlison restored Everton’s lead just before the break, two goals in three minutes from Yoane Wissa and Rico Henry gave Brentford their first league double over Everton since 1936.

The hosts’ misery was compounded by a late red card for substitute Salomon Rondon.

Boss Thomas Frank said: “It was an incredible performance that says a lot about the character of these players.

“The so-called experts say we have gone on holiday, that we have nothing to fight for, but we want to win every game we play for the Brentford fans and because we respect the league. We will put our best team out next Sunday.”

Brentford have opened the scoring at home six times this season, with three of the goals arriving between the 15:01-30-minute mark, while Leeds have conceded first on 20 occasions, seven of them falling during that same segment.

Looking at the 2.60 for a goal to be scored between this period has obvious appeal.

Last Brentford line-up: Raya, Ajer, Jansson, Sorensen, Henry, Norgaard, Erikson, Jensen, Wissa, Mbeumo, Toney.

Leeds United Odds

The West Yorkshire club moved out of the bottom three courtesy of Pascal Struijk’s late leveller against Brighton last Sunday.

But victory for Everton and a point for Burnley on Thursday meant they dropped back into the relegation zone with one match remaining.

With a far inferior goal difference to the Clarets, Leeds must now win and hope Burnley fail to beat Newcastle in order to survive.

Boss Jesse Marsch said: “We’re alive right now, regardless of the last day. We need to be ready to do whatever it takes.”

Leeds, who needed a last-gasp Patrick Bamford equaliser to earn a 2-2 draw at home to Brentford in December, have won just two of their last eight away league games.

Our final Brentford vs Leeds prediction is a 1-1 draw at 7.00 which will leave Marsch’s men preparing for life back in the Championship.

Last Leeds line-up: Meslier, Koch, Cooper, Llorente, Firpo, Raphinha, Phillips, Klich, Harrison, Rodrigo, Gelhardt.
