Chelsea to Win

The first meeting between Brentford and Chelsea this season in Premier League was a true slugfest, but Chelsea eventually came out victorious thanks to a goal by Ben Chilwell and a lot of luck.

While this is a completely different setting, we expect to see a similar game and another win for Chelsea. Reaching the quarter-finals is already a good result for Brentford, but they simply lack the experience to go toe-to-toe against the London Blues.

Brentford and Chelsea to Draw at Half Time

Although we can see Chelsea winning this match to reach the semi-finals of EFL Cup, we don’t expect them to have an easy job at all. In fact, we can see the match being decided in the second half.

That being said, the last two meetings between Chelsea and Brentford have both been Chelsea leads at the half time, but this is an important duel and we expect teams to be more focused on not conceding than scoring.

Under 2.5 Total Goals

As we already said, we expect this to be a tough match and we expect both teams to focus on defence, without rushing to score a goal. After all, every mistake at this stage of competition can be very costly.

In addition to this, we’ve only seen one goal in the first meeting between these two teams earlier this year and we can see this game being the same in this regard. So, our prediction is for this match to go under 2.5 total goals.

Brentford vs Chelsea preview: Can Brentford surprise us all?

Brentford

The newcomers to the Premier League football have been one of the most pleasant surprises of the season and they’ve shown that they truly belong in the top-flight of English football. After all, Brentford is currently 12th in the PL standings and they’ve reached the quarter-finals of EFL Cup, both respectable results for a team of their stature. Ayer, Dasilva, Raya, Jeanvier, and Jorgensen are out of the next match with injuries.

Chelsea

The reigning champions of Europe are having another good season since the team is third in the league and certainly in the title race, although they have fallen a bit behind Man City, who’s six points ahead of them right now. Chelsea also secured a spot in the Top 16 phase of Champions League. However, the team is struggling with injuries right now, along with a few positive coronavirus cases. In any case, Chilwell, Baker, Havertz, Kante, Hudson-Odoi, Lukaku, and Werner are out for sure, while Ziyech, Chalobah, and Loftus-Cheek are questionable.
