Our prediction for this Championship match:
Bournemouth play host to Brentford at their Vitality Stadium in the Championship playoffs semis, first leg. The Cherries have been impressive in the second half of the season, but it has to be noted that they are on a three-game losing run ahead of Monday’s showdown. Lewis Cook misses the match through injury, while Junior Stanislas is rated doubtful for the match. Dominic Solanke is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts.
The Bees, on the other hand, finished the regular season in style, with the team winning each of their previous four league fixtures. Anyhow, we predict that the visitors will adopt a cautious approach in the first leg. All Shandon Baptiste, Rico Henry, Josh Dasilva, and Henrik Dalsgaard are sidelined with injuries for the visiting team. In their last meeting in the Championship Brentford defeated Bournemouth 1-0, and, taking everything into account, a low-scoring affair is on the cards.
