Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
All eyes will be on Molineux Stadium when Wolverhampton and Brentford go head to head in the FA Cup replay. The Wolves managed to hold Brentford to a draw despite Joao Gomes’ early sending-off and they now aim to seal the victory in front of home fans. The 22-year-old Brazil midfielder is banned for Tuesday’s clash, while all Rayan Ait Nouri, Boubacar Traore, Hee-Chan Hwang, and Justin Hubner are on international duty.
The Bees, on the other hand, will be without important defender Ben Mee in the Molineux clash as the former Burnley man misses out through suspension, while all Saman Ghoddos, Frank Onyeka, Ji-soo Kim, and Yoana Wissa are participating at Africa Cup of Nations and Asian Cup respectively. Anyhow, yet another close encounter is on the cards and we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Hee-Chan Hwang):
Hwang Hee-Chan is a product of Pohang Steelers football academy. The Korean attacker, who was born in Chuncheon on January 26, 1996, started his senior career at FC Liefering of Austria and he scored 13 goals in 31 appearances for the club. The 177-cm tall striker currently plays for Red Bull Salzburg and you should bear in mind that he netted 12 goals for the club in the 2016/2017 season.
Hwang Hee-Chan won his second Austrian Bundesliga title with Salzburg in the 2016/2017 season, but the Red Bulls eventually failed to make it to the Champions League group stages. The Salzburg footballer made his South Korea debut in a 2-0 win over Canada on November 11, 2016.
Hee-Chan played regularly for the Korea national football team in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers and he scored one goal in the process. The Koreans eventually booked their place at the showpiece tournament in Russia, meaning that the Salzburg attacker will have a chance to prove his worth on the big stage.
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 their history of crowd violence. The colour of Brentford’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
