The tide can turn so quickly. For West Bromwich and Leeds United, promotion to the Premier League was only a matter of form after the strong first half of the season. Now the euphoria in the two top teams of the championship has evaporated. Above all, the “Peacocks” from Leeds are fighting the form crisis.
Brentford vs Leeds Betting Predictions and Odds
It’s kind of a little déjà-vu, considering that Leeds United already gambled away their direct promotion last season with a form crisis at the end of the season. Tuesday night is an important match for the Peacocks in Brentford’s Griffin Park. If Leeds United loses points again, the “Peacocks” may slip off a direct promotion spot for the first time since the 16th matchday.
Brentford even has the chance to go past Leeds United with a home win. The form crisis of the second table did not go unnoticed by the bookmakers. For Brentford to win against Leeds United odds 2.55 are offered. A prediction of this is definitely recommended given the strong home balance of the “Bees”.
This assessment is also favored by the current form of the two teams. Brentford recently won two games in a row, scoring eight goals. Leeds United, on the other hand, won only two of the last ten games in the championship.
Brentford – Statistics & current form
Brentford senses the chance of second place in the table. After two wins in a row, the “Bees” are in a promising table position and now want to take a direct promotion place. But the team around head coach Thomas Frank has to win the home game against Leeds United.
In Griffin Park, Brentford can certainly be classified as strong at home this season. The “Bees” currently have a record of 9-3-3 in their own stadium and are the fourth strongest home team of the championship. Brentford has won eight of their last nine league home games, including their recent home win over Middlesbrough.
Match winner was Ollie Watkins last weekend. The goal-getter of the “Bees” scored the decisive goal for the 3-2 final score in the final phase. For Watkins it was the 20th goal of the current season. The 24-year-old tops the list of goalscorers in the championship.
Brentford is the league’s second-strongest offensive with 52 goals anyway. On the last two match days, Thomas Frank’s team was particularly keen to score and scored eight goals. Even though the defensive behavior wasn’t exactly convincing last weekend, Brentford is the strongest defense of the championship with only 25 goals conceded.
If the “Bees” take the latest swing with them, a home win against the runners-up will certainly be achievable. Thomas Frank will have no serious failures on Tuesday evening. At Brentford vs Leeds odds of 2.55 for tip 1 are currently offered.
Probable lineup of Brentford:
↳ Raya – Henry, Pinnock, Jeanvier, Dalsgaard – Jensen, Nörgaard, Da Silva – Benrahma, Watkins, Mbeumo

Leeds – Statistics & current form
Déjà-vu for the “Peacocks”? In the past season, Leeds United had gambled away to promotion to the Premier League with a form crisis at the end of the season. A similar dilemma is looming this season. After a strong first half of the season and an interim eleven-point lead, the good starting position was lost recently.
In the meantime, the Leeds United cushion has been minimized to the pursuers. Fulham even caught up on points last weekend. If the “Peacocks” lose points again, Leeds United may leave a direct promotion spot for the first time since matchday 16.
For Marcelo Bielsa, the coach of the “Peacocks”, there was nothing to talk about. The disappointment was evident in the face of the Argentine trainer. The next setback would hardly be able to cope with the circumstances. In the championship, Leeds United have only had two wins in the last ten games.
Decisive for the negative trend was the weak goal exploitation of the “Peacocks”. For the runners-up in the championship, there were no goals in four of the last five games. The offensive misery continued last weekend. Leeds United enjoyed most of the ball, but only shot one goal from Nottingham.
The loss of motivation after the playful point cushion is enormous. So there is not really much to suggest that Leeds United will win at home strong Brentford. Coach Marcelo Bielsa will have to give up Edmondson, Douglas and Forshaw on Tuesday evening due to injury.
Probable lineup of Leeds:
↳ Casilla – Alioski, Cooper, Ayling, Dallas – White – Costa, Hernandez, Klich, Harrison – Augustin
Last games from Leeds:
⚽️ 02/08/2020 – Nottingham Forest vs. Leeds United 2- (Championship)
⚽️ 02/01/2020 – Leeds United vs. Wigan -1 (Championship)
⚽️ 01/28/2020 – Leeds United vs. FC Millwall 3: 2 (Championship)
⚽️ 01/18/2020 – Queens Park Rangers vs. Leeds United 1- (Championship)
⚽️ 01/11/2020 – Leeds United vs. Sheffield Wednesday -2 (Championship)
