Brentford and Leicester City are set to produce an open encounter in their FA Cup fourth round clash at Griffin Park. The Bees have maintained a good home record in recent weeks as they push for a playoff finish and are backed to hold their own against Leicester.

Brentford Form


Brentford are coming off a 0-0 draw at Huddersfield Town in a Championship fixture last Saturday. The visitors had 63% and result meant the Bees are unbeaten in their last four matches, having claimed a 1-0 victory over Stoke in the previous round of the FA Cup.

They are particularly impressive at home having won their last seven matches at Griffin Park. Goals have not been a problem for Thomas Frank's men lately having scored seven goals in their last three home matches.

Brentford News


Brentford are without Nikolaos Karelis, Josh Clarke and Sergi Canos who are all sidelined with injury. They have an otherwise fully fit squad for Saturday’s match and are expected to name a strong team.

Leicester Form


Leicester overcame Championship team Wigan 2-0 to secure a place in the fourth round of the competition. An own goal from Tom Pearce and a Harvey Barnes’ effort earned them the win.

Things have not been particularly smooth for Leicester since the win over Wigan as they have looked off colour in recent weeks. They have been hampered by a poor defence having kept just one clean sheet in their last six matches. 

Leicester News


Manager Brendan Rodgers will view the FA Cup as a genuine chance for a title and is expected to name a strong team. Kelechi Iheanacho and Ayoze Perez are likely to start in attack with James Maddison set to feature in midfield.

Brentford vs Leicester Head to Head


Brentford have never lost to Leicester, claiming two wins and as many draws from four previous matches. Both teams have produced BTTS in two of their last three meetings with both fixtures ending in draws.

Brentford vs Leicester Betting Odds


Brentford are priced at 4.20 for the win while a victory for Leicester City is valued at 1.83. Betfair has the best odds for a draw at 3.80. With both teams often struggling at the back, bet365 is offering 1.75 for BTTS while over 2.5 goals is paying 1.80.

Brentford vs Leicester Match Up


Ollie Watkins has been superb for Brentford this season and heads into Friday’s match with seven goals in his last 10 matches. Said Benrahma has also found the net twice in his last three appearances while Brian Mbeumo has five goals in his last 10 fixtures.

Leicester have plenty of quality in attack with Jamie Vardy who has 17 Premier League goals this season. Ayoze Perez and Kelechi Iheanacho have also impressed lately and should trouble the Brentford backline.
