Brentford vs Leicester Prediction


Brentford and Leicester are both in strong form, but I’m expecting Leicester’s Premier League quality to shine through in this match.

  • Brentford lost their last match against Premier League opposition in Tottenham (English League Cup).
  • Leicester have won their last 4 matches (all competitions).
  • Leicester have won 4 of their last 5 away matches (all competitions).
  • Leicester have won to nil in 6 of their last 7 victories (all competitions).

Head to Head


Leicester have 12 victories in this fixture compared to Brentford’s 6. They have also played out 10 draws.

Leicester won the most recent meeting between the two sides, beating Brentford 1-0 away from home in the FA Cup fourth round last season. 

Brentford Form


Brentford are gunning for promotion in the Championship this season, currently sitting 3rd in the table after 23 matches. 

The Bees have been flying in the league, but did lose their last match against a Premier League side in Tottenham, losing 2-0 in the League Cup semi-final. They have since responded with two home wins, starting with a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough.

Last time out, Brentford beat Luton 1-0 thanks to Saman Ghoddos’ 14th minute winner. The match ended on a sour note for the hosts as Ivan Toney was sent off in the closing stages.

Brentford Team News & Injuries


Leading scorer Ivan Toney is unavailable after his red card against Luton. Pontus Jansson and Shandon Baptiste are both injured.

Leicester Form


Leicester are serious title contenders in the Premier League this season, sitting 3rd in the table at the half-way point of the campaign.

They have won four matches in a row in all competitions, starting with a 2-1 win away to Newcastle and a 4-0 thrashing of Stoke in the FA Cup. The Foxes completed the run with successive 2-0 home wins, starting with a victory over Southampton.

Brendan Rodgers’ team then became the latest to profit from Chelsea’s struggles on the road thanks to goals from Wilfred Ndidi and James Maddison. Leicester now travel to Brentford for the fourth round of the FA Cup for the second time in two seasons, having won 1-0 in 2020.

Leicester Team News & Injuries


Leicester are without midfielders Nampalys Mendy and Dennis Praet due to injury. Expect Leicester to make changes, just as they did in the third round at Stoke.
