Bitesize Prediction: Brentford vs Wolves – 22/01/22

Competition: Premier League

Market: Wolves win

Odds: 6/4@ 888sport

Looking to extend on what has become a stellar purple patch, Wolves will make the trip to west London on Saturday afternoon when they face off against Brentford.

Starting with the hosts, while Brentford might have impressed many across the Premier League on their maiden top-flight campaign, the Bees are in the midst of a recent struggle. Heavily outplayed on home soil in midweek and hit with a 3-0 defeat against Manchester United, Head Coach Thomas Frank finds his side in the midst of a three-match losing run. With their recent issues over the past fortnight highlighted by a shock 4-1 drumming away at Southampton, the west London outfit have also shown some extended issues at the back. Knowing that they should face a stern test on Saturday afternoon, Frank will have a growing headache over his side’s recent struggles in the capital. Including that 3-0 defeat against United last time out, the Bees have collected just three points from their last four contests in front of their own supporters.

As for the visitors, while Brentford might be in the midst of a January struggle, the same cannot be said for a high-flying Wolves side. With the mood in their camp at a real high, the Orangers could even have their sights set on mounting a European charge this season. Gaining a host of plaudits under new boss Bruno Lage, Saturday’s guests are enjoying a five-match unbeaten run across all formats. Last seen picking up a thumping 3-1 win against Southampton on home soil, Wolves will be looking to lay down another marker in the capital here. With their recent purple patch highlighted by a shock 1-0 win away at Manchester United on January 3rd, the former Benfica manager has also seen his side lose just a single fixture since the start of November.
