Brentford vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

, KO: 19:30 Dec 27, 2023, Gtech Community Stadium
Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking to build on the win over Chelsea as they travel to Brentford for a midweek Premier League fixture. Wolves have been poor on their travels and with Brentford also unconvincing at home, both teams look set to cancel each other out.

Having sat out the previous round of matches due to Manchester City’s involvement in the Club World Cup, Brentford will be fresh for Wednesday’s fixture. Thomas Frank’s men will need all their energy to improve their recent form as they have lost five of their last six matches.

Among the results in that run is a 2-1 home defeat to Aston Villa the last time they were in Premier League action. They had opened the scoring on the stroke of halftime through Keane Lewis-Potter but were breached twice after the break.

That defeat also highlights a difficult patch at the Gtech Community Stadium in recent weeks as they have lost two of their last three home matches. However, looking at their overall home record this season shows a perfect spread of three wins and as many draws and defeats from nine matches in front of their fans.

Wolverhampton Wanderers will travel to the Gtech Community Stadium on a high after claiming a 2-1 victory over Chelsea last time out in the Premier League. They went two goals up through Mario Lenina and Matt Doherty and were able to hold on despite a late fightback attempt from the Blues.

That result means Wolverhampton Wanderers are now unbeaten in three of their last four matches, claiming two wins in that run. Gary O’Neil’s men have been steadily rising up the table in recent times and could climb into the top half if results go their way this week.

One thing about Wolverhampton Wanderers is that they often do their best work at home and tend to struggle on their travels. While they have claimed wins at Everton and Bournemouth this season, their recent record on the road leaves a lot to be desired having lost their last four away matches.

How the bookies view it

Brentford are considered overwhelming favourites among the bookies with a home win priced at 20/21 by Coral. A victory for Wolverhampton Wanderers is valued at 16/5 with bet365 while Unibet is offering odds of 5/2 for a draw.

Head to head

Players to watch

With Bryan Mbeumo still sidelined, Neal Maupay is likely to partner Yoane Wissa in attack with both men expected to trouble the Wolves defence. Maupay is priced at 21/10 by Paddy Power to score anytime while BoyleSports is offering 9/4 on Wissa in the same market.

As always Hwang Hee-Chan will be the one to watch for Wolverhampton Wanderers as he looks to add to his eight Premier League goals. The forward was also on target in the last meeting with Brentford and is priced at 15/4 by bet365 to find the net on Wednesday.

Anything else catch the eye?

There have been goals for both teams in two of their last three meetings and a similar outcome could be expected on Wednesday at 4/5 with William Hill. Wolves saw over 2.5 goals in their previous fixture and a repeat is valued at evens with bet365, who is also offering odds of 5/2 for over 3.5 goals.

There have been more goals after the break in two of the last three meetings and Wednesday’s clash could be set to follow a similar pattern at 11/10 with Paddy Power.
