Our football match prediction:
Sheffield Wednesday look unstoppable at the moment. Thanks to a 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest the Owls extended their winning run to four games in the Championship and, as a result, they are on the right track to book their place in the play-offs. However, the season is quite long and Carlos Carvalhal’s men will have to be at their sharpest in the remainder of the season if they are to make it to the play-offs. Fernando Forestieri found the net in the 2-1 win over Forest at the weekend and the Italian attacker is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Over the years the Owls have turned their Hillsborough Stadium into a real fortress and, taking everything into account, we predict that they will pick up all three points from Tuesday’s football match against Brentford, who have been struggling at the back of late. You should bear in mind that the Bees conceded ten goals in previous three league games.
Highligted Player (Glenn Loovens):
Glenn Loovens is the son of Hans Loovens, who used to play for FC Twente in the past. Unlike his father, Glenn started his senior career at Feyenoord and it has to be noted that he played 27 league games for de Trots van Zuid. The right-footed defender played for the likes of Excelsior, De Graafschap and Cardiff City on loan between 2003 and 2006 and then he decided to sign a permanent deal with the Welsh outfit. After playing 67 games for the Bluebirds, he joined Celtic on 16 August, 2008 and it has to be noted that he scored 8 goals in 61 appearances for the Hoops in the Scottish Premier League. In 2012 he moved to Spain, signing a deal with Zaragoza and he played 21 games for the La Romareda outfit in La Liga. Loovens then decided to return to England as he signed a contract with Sheffield Wednesday. Speaking of his international career, the Sheffield Wednesday footballer has two caps for Netherlands, while playing 6 games for the U-21 team.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300. The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition. Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have always been marred by crowd violence. The colour of Brenftord’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
