Our prediction for this Championship match:
Brentford and Aston Villa take on each other at Griffin Park in what is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of Wednesday’s program. Brentford recorded three wins in previous four league fixtures, but that did not help them escape the danger zone in the Championship standings. The Bees, though, are a real force to be reckoned with at home and seeing that they have been scoring goals for fun of late, we are positive that they are going to find the net in Wednesday’s football match. The Villans, on the other hand, played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with Sheffield United at the weekend, with the team coming from three goals behind. Abraham scored his 20th goal of the season in the 3-3 draw with the Blades and he is likely to help the visitors find the net in the midweek fixture as well.
Highlighted Player (Josh McEachran):
Josh McEachran is a professional football player who was born on 1 March, 1993. The English footballer plays as central midfielder, but he is capable of playing as both attacking and defensive midfielder as well. McEachran is a product of Chelsea youth school, but he made no more than 11 appearances for the senior squad at Stamford Bridge. After spending several seasons on loan at Swansea City, Middlesbrough, Watford, Wigan and Vitesse, he signed a four-year deal with Brentford on 10 July 2015 for an undisclosed fee. Just 15 days later he suffered a fractured foot and, as a result, he was out of contention for three months. McEachran made his Brentford debut on 15 December in a 2-1 win over Reading and he went on to make 14 appearances for the Bees in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign. Josh was born in Kirtlington, Oxfordshire, England, but his parents are Scottish. The Brentford midfielder was in a relationship with English actress Brooke Vincent.
Highlighted Team (Aston Villa):
Aston Villa is one of the three clubs that dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 Premier League campaign. The Villans host their rivals at Villa Park, the stadium that was opened in 1897 and its’ capacity is 42,682. However, it has to be noted that the highest attendance recorded at the stadium was 76,588 when Aston Villa faced Derby County in the FA Cup back in 1946.
Aston Villa’s fiercest rivals are Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion. Nonetheless, the rivalry between Aston Villa and Wolves and Coventry City is big as well. Aston Villa have won seven First Division (Premier League) trophies, with the team clinching seven FA Cup trophies as well.
The team’s biggest success, though, came in 1982 when they won the European Cup. The Villans defeated Bayern Munich (1-0) in the title game and Peter Withe was named the man of the match.
