Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Brentford odds and betting statistics



Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Brentford match preview

Will Wolverhampton Wanderers win again?

Last weekend, Matheus Nunes’ stunning volley saw Wolves beat Chelsea 1-0 at Molineux; if you haven’t seen it, it’s well worth seeking out.

This saw Julen Lopetegui’s team climb up to 13th, now four points clear of the relegation zone.

With games against Leicester, Palace and Everton to come, Wolves’ fate is in their own hands, and they’re looking good to survive.

Six of their eight wins this season have come at home, so can they further improve that ratio here?

Brentford meanwhile won 2-0 when they last visited Molineux in September 2021, thereby claiming the club’s first top-flight away win since 5 April 1947.

The Bees do actually come into this one following back-to-back defeats, beaten 1-0 by Manchester United and then 2-1 by Newcastle.

Ivan Toney saw a penalty saved in the latter, the first he’d missed in seven years, before converting one 15 minutes later.

These defeats have seen Brentford sink to ninth, meaning they face an uphill battle to get into a European spot.

This clash in the Black County is tough to call.

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news

RĂşben Neves will serve the second of his two-match ban, while right-back NĂ©lson Semedo is one yellow card away from a two-game suspension of his own.

If Neves’ absence, Julen Lopetegui deployed a 4-4-2 against Chelsea, featuring Matheus Cunha and Diego Costa in attack.

Should Costa feature again, he’ll be targeting his first goal for anyone since 10 November 2021.

With Jonny and Rayan AĂŻt-Nouri sidelined, Toti could continue at left-back, chosen over Hugo Bueno.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): José Sá; Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Bueno; Lemina, João Gomes, Nunes; Podence, Sarabia, Cunha.

Brentford team news

Thomas Frank has opted for a back five in Brentford’s last three games, although this could change after Pontus Jansson hobbled off last weekend.

If he wants to stick with this shape, Mathias Jørgensen will come in given that Kristoffer Ajer is out injured too.

In attack, Kevin Schade was handed a rare start against Newcastle, so could be chosen again over Bryan Mbeumo once more.

Talisman Ivan Toney would miss Brentford’s next two games, Aston Villa (H) and Chelsea (A), if booked.

Predicted XI (5-3-2): Raya; Hickey, Pinnock, Jørgensen, Mee, Henry; Nørgaard, Jensen, Dasilva; Schade, Toney.
