Both teams to score at Swansea vs Brentford 10/11 for Wednesday’s Championship showdown

Competition: Championship

Market: Both teams to score

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

In a real showdown between two promotion-chasers on Wednesday night, Swansea will welcome Brentford to an empty Liberty Stadium in midweek.

Starting with the hosts, putting in a thumping display while on FA Cup duties over the weekend, the mood in Swansea’s camp should be at a real high. Booking themselves a fifth-round showdown against Manchester City thanks to a 5-1 romp against Nottingham Forest on home soil, the Whites also find themselves leading the automatic promotion race. Still holding onto their spot in the top-two, Steve Cooper’s side have continued to impress since opening the New Year. Along with landing that thumping victory against Forest last time out, Wednesday’s hosts find themselves enjoying a four-match winning run across all formats. Even more impressive, Swansea are unbeaten at the Liberty while on Championship duties since way back on October 17th.

As for the visitors, while a heavily-altered Brentford squad might have eventually fallen to a 3-1 defeat against Premier League outfit Leicester over the weekend, the Bees also find themselves enjoying a real Championship purple patch. Still tipped as one of the leading contenders to book a maiden top-flight campaign this year, Thomas Frank’s men have won each of their last four second-tier contests on the spin, a run highlighted by a very impressive 2-1 win against Bournemouth earlier in the month. Welcoming back a host of their first-team stars in South Wales, Brentford have also gained a real reputation for their success on the road. Remarkably picking up 13 points from their last five Championship contests outside of West London and unbeaten on their travels since the end of October, we’re backing another lively contest in midweek.
