Forest Green to produce major shock

Boom. We imagine we’ve just blown a couple of minds with such a bold prediction. Bear with us though as there is logic to the top. Brentford have enjoyed decent cup runs in the last couple of seasons but, this year, it’s all about staying in the Premier League. Four points from six is a great start for the Bees but Forest Green are in great form too hence why the stars could align for an upset. Forest Green have won their first four league games and beaten Bristol City on penalties in the EFL trophy. This tip is a long shot but stranger things have happened.

Plenty of goals to hit the net

The next of our tips is for this match to see a minimum of three goals. Brentford have surpassed that cut off point in two of their last four matches whilst Forest Green have been goal crazy. Being in a lower league, they’ve already played five competitive matches this season seeing a total of 23 goals; that’s an average of 4.6 per match. On top of that, every single game they’ve played in that period has seen at least three goals.

Forest Green to score

Our last tip is, in our opinion, the most conservative of the three free predictions but, given the disparity in league positions, you can still find respectable odds simply on Forest Green to score. Now, to be fair, Brentford are yet to conceded in the two Premier League games they’ve played so they’re no fools. You have to expect a few changes from them though and that will let in a Forest Green attack that have scored 15 goals from their five games this season.

Brentford vs Forest Green: Brentford to exit cup owing to league focus?

Brentford

Brentford are riding a wave of excitement in the Premier League with their last home match being the season opener where they beat Arsenal. This game will be very different with people like Ivan Toney unquestionably rested. At the other end, Alvaro Fernandez is likely to be in goal for his debut.

Forest Green

Forest Green missed out on promotion via the League Two playoffs last year and will be determined to go up this time round. Despite that, these cups are potential money spinners and we anticipate a strong line up. Watch out for Mathew Stevens; he has six goals from his last five scoring in each of them.
