Our prediction for this Championship match:
After sharing the spoils with Swansea City on Wednesday evening, Brentford will be looking to return to winning ways in the Championship when they host Wycombe at Brentford Community Stadium. The Bees are on a three-game winning run at home ground, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. The likes of Baptiste, Jansson, Marcondes, and Norgaard are all out of contention through injuries.
The Chairboys, on the other hand, will find it hard to survive in the Championship as they are 10 points behind the safe zone ahead of the trip to London. Anyhow, David faces Goliath at Brentford Community Stadium, and anything but a routine win will be a major surprise. Summer signing Ivan Toney, who has netted 16 goals in the Championship so far this season, is likely to lead the line for the hosts.
Highlighted Player (Saïd Benrahma):
Said Benrahma is an Algeria international who started his club career at Nice. The pacey winger made his Ligue 1 debut during the 2013/2014 season and after scoring 3 goals in 17 appearances for les Aiglons in the French top flight, he moved to the Championship team Brentford in the summer of 2018.
Said Benrahma was born in Ain Temouchent, Algeria on August 10, 1995 and it has to be noted that he played for the likes of Angers, Gazelec Ajaccio and Chateauroux on loan before joining the Griffin Park outfit. The Algerian footballer impressed in the 2018/2019 Championship season, scoring 10 goals and providing 15 assists for his teammates.
His main position is right winger, but he is used as a left winger as well. Speaking of his international career, Said Benrahma made his debut for the Algeria national team on October 13, 2015 in a 1-0 win over Senegal.
Highlighted Team (Wycombe):
Founded back in 1887, Wycombe Wanderers are one of the oldest clubs in the League One. The Chairboys are well known for their sky blue and dark blue shirts, but the colour of their away kit is orange combined with gun-metal gray.
Wycombe Wanderers host their rivals at Adams Park, a small stadium in Sands Industrial Estate which can hold up to 10,137 people. Milton Keynes Dons are seen as the club’s main rivals, with the two teams facing each other in the Buckinghamshire derby. Wycombe Wanderers made it to the FA Cup semis in the 2000/2001, with the team repeating the success in the League Cup six seasons later.
It has to be noted that the Chairboys have two FA Trophy titles (1991, 1993). Legendary midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is considered one of the club’s most famous players. Ainsworth scored 16 goals in 112 league appearances for Wycombe Rovers.
