Match: Bournemouth vs Brentford

Competition: Championship

Date: May 17, 2021

Kick-off time: 6:00 pm, May 17, 2021 (UK time)

Stadium: Vitality Stadium

Betting prediction: Bournemouth 0-1 Brentford

Bournemouth head into Monday’s 1st leg in pretty poor form, having lost each of their last three matches without scoring a single goal.

Brentford certainly come into the two-legged tie as favourites. The Bees have won four on the spin and are unbeaten in their previous 12 matches. Thomas Frank’s side finished 10 points above Bournemouth in the regular season.

The Cherries don’t really do draws at the Vitality – only one of their previous 21 matches at home has ended in a draw.

These two sides met at the Vitality fairly recently, with Brentford coming out 0-1 winners.

Bournemouth vs Brentford: Recommended bets

Brentford to keep a clean sheet. Bournemouth haven’t scored a goal in three matches, while Brentford have kept six clean sheets in their last eight.

Ivan Toney to score. Not only did Toney win this season’s golden boot award, he broke the all-time record for the most goals scored in a Championship season. The 25-year-old has scored in each of his last two appearances and finished the campaign with a total of 31 league goals.

Bournemouth vs Brentford: Match preview

Bournemouth welcome Brentford to the Vitality Stadium on Monday evening for the first leg of their play-off semi-final tie.

Despite playing in the Premier League last season, Bournemouth are the definite underdogs in this tie. The Cherries’ recent form is pretty poor – although perhaps some of that could come down to the fact that they’ve been assured of a spot in the play-offs for a few weeks now.

Bournemouth were managed by Jason Tindall for the first half of the season, before he was replaced by Jonathan Woodgate in mid-February. At one stage, Bournemouth looked certain to finish third, but their form in the run-in saw them drop to sixth – seven points clear of Reading.

Bournemouth ended the season with the 4th-best home record in the division, winning 13 and drawing three of their 23 matches at the Vitality Stadium. Only Watford managed to score more goals at home (44) than Bournemouth (40). It’s worth pointing out that they have lost their last two matches at home.

The Cherries will be eager to climb back to the Premier League at the first time of asking. The South Coast club spent five consecutive seasons in the top flight before being relegated in 2020.

Brentford finished third in the table this season, eventually missing out on an automatic spot by just four points.

Brentford have been playing in the Championship for seven consecutive seasons. They reached the play-offs in the 2014-15 season but failed to gain promotion. The Bees have never played in the Premier League, and last competed in England’s top tier in the 1940s.

Brentford had the second-best away record this season, winning 12 and drawing six of their 23 matches on the road. No team scored more goals away from home than Brentford (40). Brentford are unbeaten in their last six away matches, winning each of their last three.

Brentford did the double over Bournemouth this season, winning 2-1 at home in December and 1-0 at the Vitality just last month, with Bryan Mbeumo scoring the only goal of the game.

These two sides will meet again for the second leg on Saturday. The winners of the tie will face one of Barnsley or Swansea at Wembley in the play-off final.


Bournemouth team news vs Brentford

Jonathan Woodgate is unlikely to make wholesale changes to the side which lost to Stoke on the final day of the season, although Jack Stacey could come in for Adam Smith at right-back.

Junior Stanislas is a major doubt for the home side. The winger has a hamstring injury, but has a chance of recovering in time for the second leg.

Lewis Cook remains sidelined for the Cherries.

Chris Mepham could face his former side. The centre-back made 48 appearances for Brentford before signing for Bournemouth in January 2019.

Brentford team news vs Bournemouth

Thomas Frank has a couple more absentees to contend with. Josh Dasilva and Rico Henry will miss the entirety of the play-offs due to injury, while Shandon Baptiste and Henrik Dalsgaard are also ruled out.

Sergi Canos and Bryan Mbeumo will battle it out for the left wing-back position. Marcus Forss is expected to partner Ivan Toney in attack.
