Brentford hosts Burnley in round 29 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Saturday, March 12th at Brentford Community Stadium (London)
Brentford is in 15th place in the Premier League standings with 27 points after 28 matches. Thomas Frank’s team gained seven victories and six draws and suffered 15 losses. The Bees have been in a protracted decline since the beginning of the calendar year. After beating Port Vale in the FA Cup, they gained only one draw in the next nine official matches, sharing points with Crystal Palace at home (0-0). On March 5, Brentford ended their unbeaten streak with a 3-1 away victory over Norwich thanks to Ivan Toney’s hat-trick. Interestingly, the leader of the team’s attacks scored two goals from the penalty spot.

Burnley is in 18th place in the standings with 21 points. Sean Dyche’s team has three victories, 12 draws, and 11 defeats after 26 games. The Clarets also rarely scored points in recent rounds. In the last three matches, they limited themselves to one point scored thanks to an away draw against Crystal Palace (1-1). On March 5, Burnley suffered their second home defeat in a row, losing to Chelsea with a big score of 0-4. The Clarets successfully defended until the break, but then the Pensioners found a loophole in the defense and upset goalkeeper Nick Pope four times within 24 minutes.
Burnley hosted Brentford in the tenth round of the current championship. The match at Turf Moor on October 30, 2021, ended with the victory of the home team (3-1). Chris Wood, Matthew Lawton, and Maxwell Cornet scored in the first 36 minutes, and Saman Ghoddos scored a consolation goal for the Bees. The upcoming match in London may influence the final position of the teams at the bottom of the standings. Burnley is struggling to survive, and Brentford is very close to the relegation zone. The match between these outsiders will turn out to be tough and unpredictable, since there is no clear favorite. The tense nature of the game can have a negative impact on the audience appeal and production. At least one side didn’t score in three of Brentford’s last five matches and seven of Burnley’s nine games, so there is a good chance that a similar result will be repeated.
