Our football match prediction:
Saturday’s football game at Griffin Park pits together Brentford and Leeds United. The Whites aim to bounce back from a 2-1 loss to Derby County and a win over the Bees would see them retain their spot in top six. Leeds, though, do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of Matchday 16 and seeing that they suffered five defeats in previous six league fixtures, away win should not be considered. Brentford have been in a fine form of late and they are eager to climb to the top half of the table. The Bees defeated the Whites in their last meeting at Griffin Park and we predict that the hosts will emerge triumphant in Saturday’s clash. A man to watch in the home team will be winger Olie Watkins, who scored his fifth goal of the season in a 3-2 win over Preston North End at the weekend.
Highlighted Player (Andreas Bjelland):
Andreas Bjelland is a Danish footballer who plays for Brentford. Bjelland plays at centre back and he started his professional career in 2006. After spending three seasons at Lyngby, Bjelland joined yet another Danish outfit Nordsjaelland in 2009 and he went on to make a total of 72 appearances for the Wild Tigers. On 6 November, 2011, Bjelland signed a four-year deal with Twente but he made no more than 14 appearances for the club on his debut season due to injury. After spending six months on the sidelines with a broken metatarsal, Bjelland returned to contention and he came back fit for the 2013/2014 Eredivisie campaign. The Danish defender played in 33 games for Twente in the 2013/2014 season, while making 26 appearances for the club in his last season (2014/2015) at De Grolsch Veste. On 2 July, 2015, the highly rated centre-back joined Championship side Brentford and he has been playing for the Bees ever since. The Danish footballer, though, suffered a groin injury in pre-season and, as a result, he did not make his Brentford debut in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign.
Highlighted Team (Leeds United):
Leeds United are one of the clubs that won the FA Cup. The Whites outplayed Arsenal in the final of the prestigious competition back in 1972, but they clinched the League Cup trophy as well. Leeds United faced the Gunners in the 1967/1968 League Cup final and it has to be noted that Terry Cooper scored the winner for the Whites. Leeds play their home games at Elland Road and the capacity of the stadium is 37,914. The club was founded in 1919 and they have won three First Division (Premier League) trophies ever since (1968/1969, 1973/1974, 1991/1992). Leeds United made it to the Champions League final in 1975, but they were beaten by Bayern Munich in the title clash. The Whites were impressive under David O’Leary. The likes of Jonathan Woodgate, Lee Bowyer, Harry Kewell, Mark Viduka and Ian Harte were part of the Elland Road outfit back then and they did well to reach the semis of the Champions League in 2001.
