Our match prediction:
Ipswich Town finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in seventh place in the standings, just above top six and, as a result, they failed to book their place in the play-offs. The Tractor Boys are eager to make amends for the “unsuccessful campaign” and they could not have wished for a better start to the new season. Ipswich Town recorded a 4-2 win over Barnsley in their opener and they will be aiming to build on the performance when they square off against Brentford at Griffin Park. The Bees were beaten by Huddersfield Town in the opening game of the season and they will certainly give their all to pick up at least one point from Saturday’s football game against Ipswich Town. Considering that the visitors would be happy with one point from the match as well, we predict that the two teams are going to share the spoils at Griffin Park.
Highlighted Team (Ipswich Town):
Ipswich Town are an English football club that was formed in 1878. Portman Road has been the home ground of Ipswich Town since 1894 and the capacity of the venue, which was expanded in 2002, is 30,311. The Tractor Boys compete in the Championship, but they used to play in the English Premier League in the past as well. Ipswich Town last appeared in the elite division in the 2001/2002 season. Ipswich won the FA Cup in 1978, with the team beating Arsenal (1-0) in the title game. However, the club’s biggest success came in 1981 when they outplayed AZ Alkmaar in the UEFA Cup final. It has to be noted that the Tractor Boys have yet to suffer a loss at home ground in the European competitions. Norwich City are regarded as Ipswich Town’s bitterest rivals and it is well known that the two sides take on each other in the East Anglian derby.
