Brentford vs Wolverhampton Wanderers: Recommended bets

13 of Wolves’ 20 Premier League matches this season have featured one goal or less, including eight successive low-scoring games, a run that was ended last weekend. Thus, under 2.5 goals should be a safe bet at 8/15.

The away side to win and under 2.5 goals, therefore winning 1-0 or 2-0, is 15/4; eight of Wolves’ last 13 league wins have been by either of these scorelines.

Wolves have also lost just one of their last nine top-flight away matches against newly-promoted clubs.

Can Brentford address their worrying form?

On Wednesday night, they welcomed Manchester United to the Brentford Community Stadium and, somehow, didn’t score in the first half.

Mathias Jensen, twice, and Mads Bech Sørensen squandered gilt-edged chances in the first 45 as it remained goalless at the break.

Then, followed lots of questionable at best defending, Man United scored thrice in 22 minutes, thereby ending any Brentford hopes in West London.

Ivan Toney did, belatedly, get one back late on, poking home from close-range following a long-thrown, but was a mere consolation.

So, despite accumulating an xG figure of 2.73, the Bees were beaten again, losing for the fifth time in just six Premier League outings.

Coming up after this they face Manchester City, Crystal Palace and Arsenal, so could be even lower than their current position of 14th by late-February.

This one certainly won’t be easy for them either.

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ supporters enjoyed a goal-fest by their standards last weekend, hammering Southampton 3-1 at Molineux.

Raúl Jiménez converted a penalty before Conor Coady and Adama Traoré , the Spaniard’s first of the season, sealed the points.

Before this, Wolves’ last eight Premier League games had featured one goal or less, accumulating 12 points in this period.

In fact, Bruno Lage’s side have conceded just once from open-play since 6 November, helping them sit eighth in the table.

Brentford won 2-0 in the Black County in September but it’s Wolves who come into this clash as firm favourites.

Jonas Lössl will keep his place in goal, having made his Premier League debut in midweek, displacing Álvaro Fernández who’s struggled for form.

Kristoffer Ajer though sat on the bench against Manchester United so is a doubt after only recently returning after injury.

A boost though was that Rico Henry came off the bench in that match after he too endured a spell on the sidelines.

In midfield, Josh Dasilva is a long-term absentee while Frank Onyeka is at the Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria.

Up front, Bryan Mbeumo scored at Molineux in September but has scored just one league goal, a penalty, since October 3.

However, the Frenchman is likely to get the nod over Yoane Wissa once again as Ivan Toney’s partner.

Despite their impressive defensive record, only Manchester City have conceded fewer goals, Wolves are missing numerous defenders.

Romain Saïss is at the Africa Cup of Nations while Willy Boly, Yerson Mosquera and Jonny are all injured.

So, 23-year-old Tote Gomes came in for his Premier League debut last weekend; he’d spent the first half of the season on loan at Grasshoppers in Switzerland.

At left-wing-back, Rayan Aït-Nouri is back after a recent groin strain, taking Marçal’s place.

Rúben Neves missed last weekend’s win due to a positive Covid-19 test but could be straight back into the XI here.

Despite his clinching goal against Southampton, Adama Traoré is likely to be a substitute once again.

That’s because Francisco Trincão and Daniel Podence are the first-choice inside-forwards, in behind Raúl Jiménez.

Hwang Hee-chan is back in training after picking up an injury away to Brighton in mid-December.
