Mancester City - Brentford: prediction "1/1"

Manchester City face Brentford in the 24th round of the Premier League. The Citizens surprisingly failed to beat Southampton for the second time this season, ending in a draw 1:1. This result ended a series of 12 consecutive victories of the champions in the Premier League and allowed Liverpool to close the gap with the leader to nine points. The Merseysiders have played a game less, so the intrigue for the gold medals is still there.

The last few weeks have definitely not been the most successful for Brentford. The Bees are not in good shape and have suffered a lot of losses, not only in the English Championship. Over the weekend, Brentord was defeated 4-1 away to Everton for the FA Cup. Of course, this is not very bad news, as now Thomas Frank and his players will focus on the Premier League. Before the start of the 24th round, Brentford ranked 14th in the standings with 23 points, eight more than 18th-placed Watford, but two games more.

Brentford's results deteriorated largely due to defensive problems. At the beginning of the season, the "Bees" were one idea more aggressive and did not give so much time for action to the opposing player. However, the accumulated fatigue and the short bench are starting to take their toll, and recently Brentford has not been as effective defensively.

The task of the guests on Wednesday will be even more complicated. Recently, Manchester City not only dominates in front positions, but is also very solid in defense. In this situation, I expect another clear success for the hosts in combination with a dry net. Just a few weeks ago, Brentford left with a 3-0 victory over the other favorite for the title, Liverpool, without reaching a clear goal position. By default, the odds of this happening again are around 1.60, but bet365 offers a similar bet with an increased odds of 1.80, which is a good opportunity to take advantage.
