Both teams to score at Brentford vs QPR 4/5 for Friday’s Championship battle

Competition: Championship

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport

In a London derby to open up this weekend’s fixtures, Brentford will host QPR from behind closed doors on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, managing to make a much-welcomed return to winning ways earlier in the week, Brentford picked up a 1-0 victory away at Barnsley and the Bees will be desperate to build off of that result. Watching the likes of Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins make the move away from West London after their play-off final heartbreak over the summer, Thomas Frank’s men have struggled to pick up maximum points. However, while Brentford might have won just a pair of their last seven Championship contests, they do have one leading marksman who has really impressed since securing a summer move from Peterborough. Bagging the winner away at Oakwell in midweek, Ivan Toney has already managed to grab himself 11 Championship goals this season.

As for the visitors, while QPR might have endured a worrying start to the 2020/2021 campaign, the Hoops have really bounced back in impressive fashion. Last seen earlier in the week, Mark Warburton’s men managed to hang onto a dramatic 3-2 victory against Rotherham on home soil and they have continued their climb up the Championship table. Including back-to-back wins against Cardiff and Derby when entering November, Friday’s guests have lost just one of their last five appearances. Although Brentford might have one striking MVP enjoying a recent purple patch, it could be worth keeping an eye out for Lyndon Dykes this week. Helping Scotland secure their spot at next year’s European Championships and finding the net against Rotherham earlier in the week, the 25-year-old has eight goals across all formats.
