The Brentford players put too much energy in the game against Brighton just three days before this meeting. If they had at least saved that match, perhaps it would have given them some strength. Well, so … I’m afraid the newcomers to the elite understand that there won’t be much to catch here, and the main thing is to avoid injuries, which are quite possible with such a schedule of games.
Well, City are winning nine rounds in a row, and in the last three games – with Leicester, Newcastle and Leeds – they have scored an indecent number of goals – 17 … the quality of the game is unlikely to suffer greatly.
It is difficult to find something interesting from the rates when the odds of 1.18 are given for the victory of one of the teams, but I liked one option. I think that no matter how events develop in the first half, there should be moments in the second – there Brentford can grow bolder, and Man City will either increase the pressure if at that time the score is not necessary, or use the free spaces that will be left by the owners.
