Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
All eyes will be on Griffin Park when Brentford take on Leicester City in the FA Cup round 4. The Bees are enjoying a very successful season, and they are on the right track to book their place in the Championship play-offs. Brentford could secure automatic promotion to the Premier League as well, meaning that they will be fully focused on the league fixtures in the remainder of the season.
The Foxes, on the other hand, have been producing splendid showings under Brendan Rodgers, and, as a result, they sit in the third position in the standings ahead of Matchday 24. Leicester City’s main goal is to secure a top-four finish in the EPL, meaning that Brendan Rodgers is unlikely to field the best possible side against Brentford. A close encounter is on the cards at Griffin Park; therefore, we are tempted to put our money on draw.
