Brentford v Leeds United: Premier League Match-day 6
This Saturday sees Brentford go head to head with Leeds at Brentford Community Stadium – Kick-off 3:00pm GMT.
Seventh placed Leeds will travel to Brentford Community Stadium, hopeful of rampage, as they face eleventh placed Brentford.
Brentford’s Premier League season, has so far seen them gain six points, going into this game
Also, with two draws in two meetings, Manager Thomas Frank has plenty to ponder, going into the next fixture, not least of which is how to get the wins he needs. With an eleventh position in the league and 1 wins, 1 losses and 3 draws, they currently have six points in the League having won one game, drawn three matches, and lost one game.
Brentford have won one game and drawn one game of their two League matches at home this season.
Victory for Brentford would take their points tally to 9 so far this season.
Good Attacking Performance
Brentford have a good scoring record this season, with 10 netted so far. This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Pelenda Da Silva (2), Ivan Toney (2), and Christian Norgaard (1). Brentford have conceded seven goals.
Brentford are missing five players through injury or illness. This will affect Thomas Frank’s selection choices significantly.
It’s eight points so far for Leeds United this season, going into this game
With Jesse Marsch’s men stubbornly held to a 1-1 draw in their last match, he will hope to find the key to unlock the defence in this fixture.
Also, Leeds are quickly becoming the Premier League’s draw specialists, having recorded one in their last one game. They currently stand seventh in the League, with eight points for a total of 2 wins, 1 losses and 2 draws having won two fixtures, drawn two games, and lost one game.
Leeds will travel to Brentford with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one draw and one losse.
A win in this fixture would take Leeds United’s points to 11 in the League.
Good Attacking Performance
They have a good scoring average of eight goals. This season, their stand-out attacking players have been Rodrigo Moreno (4), Brendan Aaronson (1), and Jack Harrison (1). Leeds have conceded five goals.
It is likely that five key players will miss Saturday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Jesse Marsch and his Leeds team.
