Brentford will be hosting Manchester United for a crucial game of the current season of the Premier League. With the season almost half way through, Manchester United is currently at the 5th spot on the points table, just one point ahead of the 6th placed Arsenal. A victory will take them closer to the top 4, and a berth in the Champions League. On the other hand, Brentford is at 9th place with 20 points, and a victory will see it jump to 8th place, overtaking the Wolves.
This is the first time since 1975 that Brentford will be facing the Red Devils in a competitive game. While the previous friendly ended in a draw, most betting sites are predicting a Manchester United victory this time around.
Match prediction and football betting tips for Brentford vs Manchester United Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at Brentford Community Stadium, Brentford, on the 14th of December 2021.
Brentford will be high on confidence coming into this game, thanks to a stunning comeback against Watford today. The game was tied at 1-1, but a stunning last-minute penalty by Bryan Mbeumo took the Bees over the line, helping it jump up from the 13th spot on the points table.
On the other hand, Manchester United, who had a horrible start to the season, seems to have adapted pretty well to the style of its newly appointed manager, Ralf Rangnick. The team has moved ahead of the humiliating loss against Watford and will enter this game in some form, after three consecutive Premier League victories against Crystal Palace, Arsenal, and Norwich.
There is no doubt, though, that the win against Norwich was anything but convincing. A single penalty was the difference between the two teams in the end and de Gea definitely kept out a couple of excellent shots on target as well.
Brentford will likely be missing out on Ivan Toney, who has tested positive for CoViD 19. Aside from that, the team may also have to contend without injured players like Kristoffer Ajer, David Raya, and Josh DaSilva.
We think Manchester United is being rated too highly by the bookmakers right now and believe Brentford has an excellent chance of pulling United down a notch.
Bet on Brentford to win.
Manchester United was very lucky to have not conceded one or maybe even two goals against Norwich City in its previous match. Make no mistake, the defensive problems of Manchester United have not disappeared overnight. We think Brentford has the attack to be able to take advantage of Manchester United's problems but there is also no doubt that the offensive line of Manchester tends to find the back of the net very often too! With goals in its previous seven away games for Manchester United and goals in its previous four home games for Brentford, we think both teams could get on the sheet in this one.
