Brentford vs Newcastle in the Premier League on Feb 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

Brentford vs Newcastle in the Premier League on Feb 26. 2022 - Odds & Prediction

With both Watford and Burnley winning at the weekend, it has now put Brentford in the spotlight and with no win from their last seven league outings, many are wondering if relegation will be reality at the end of the season.

Something that Newcastle are also looking to avoid and after going unbeaten in their last six league outings, Eddie Howe’s men are now starting to find their feet at just the right point of the season.

Brentford To Win

Although Brentford have not won any of their last seven league outings and Newcastle have not lost any of their last six, there is not necessarily reasons for doom and gloom in West London.

Because ultimately all runs have to end at some point and with two runs meeting head-to-head, I fancy Brentford to finally end their unwanted streak and pick up a much-needed win in the Premier League.

Which means if like me, you think the Bees will sting the Magpies on Saturday and return to winning ways, you can back this outcome at odds of 31/20 with Sportnation - odds that will certainly fatten up any weekend accumulator.

Brentford Form, squad news, opinion

Just one point from 21, that is the tale of Brentford’s tape right now and although many felt that the relegation battle would play out below them, now that same optimism is no longer shared throughout the football world.

Because as the teams below them - one of those being Saturday’s opponents Newcastle, scrap for points and more importantly wins, Brentford are hitting the worst kind of Premier League form right now.

Form that suggests that their trajectory is going one way and the clubs below them are going in the other direction and if this current trend continues, the likes of Newcastle may be passing Brentford on their own way up.

Which is why this weekend’s clash in West London is one that takes on additional importance and if Brentford fail to end their unwanted run of recent results, the magnifying glass will only be further placed on Thomas Frank’s men.

There is no doubt that Brentford have been a side that has put in plenty of effort this season but at the same time they are beginning to show all the hallmarks of a struggling side and one that could be set for worse times around the corner.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the visit of Newcastle, there are no concerns for Thomas Frank before the weekend. The only real concern for the Dane is working out how to return his side to winning ways.

Newcastle Form, squad news, opinion

12 points earned from the last 18 on offer, that is a tale of Newcastle’s tape right now and right now it feels good to be a fan of the Magpies. A feeling that has been missing from Tyneside for quite a while.

A feeling that only increased in good mood last Saturday, as Eddie Howe’s men were decent value for their 1-1 draw away at West Ham and with that draw in London, they kept their recent positive momentum going.

Momentum that has seen them go unbeaten in their last half dozen league outings and with that, they have now become one of the form teams in the division - something that would have been unlikely at the turn of the year.

Which is testament to the hard work that manager Eddie Howe has put in as of late and in the last six league matches, there is a genuine sense that everything is starting to click for this Newcastle side.

Especially as they picked up that point against West Ham, without the services of Kieran Trippier and although his absence will be a massive blow, it also suggests that this side is not reliant on one player alone.

In terms of injuries and suspensions for the trip to Brentford, it is not good news for Newcastle and manager Eddie Howe, as the former Bournemouth boss has to contend with a long injury list once again.

One that sees the quartet of Kieran Trippier, Allan Saint-Maximin, Callum Wilson and Issac Hayden all ruled out for the trip to West London.

History

Not a great deal in terms of history between Brentford and Newcastle and their only previous meeting in the Premier League was earlier in the season, when the Bees ran out winners at St James’ Park.

In terms of their overall head-to-head record, Brentford have won on 4 occasions, Newcastle 8 and there has been 1 draw

About the Venue

The Brentford Community Stadium has only been in operation for less than two seasons and with the first of those being mainly behind closed doors, the sound of their supporters is a rather welcome one.

With COVID-19 restrictions being lifted in England, it means there is no longer the need to show a Vaccine Passport before attending the ground. Which means, match tickets are the only item that is required to be produced at the time of writing.

Conclusion

When looking at the odds for Premier League relegation, Brentford have found theirs shortening in recent weeks and if they were to lose to Newcastle on Saturday, then that price would continue to go in that direction.

While the opposite has been happening for Newcastle as of late and if they can pick up a win in West London, then the odds of them being relegated at the end of the season will only lengthen further.
