Brentford will be looking to bounce back from a poor showing last time out as they were outclassed 5-1 by Newcastle. It is just one win in their last seven for the London outfit although they are still in mid-table.

At home, the Bees have been a mixed bag this campaign with two victories, one draw and two defeats in five. This ground tends to produce entertaining games with a combined 19 coming in the last five an average just below four per fixture.

Brighton won the (stop me if you’ve heard this one before) the xg battle but not the game going down 1-0 to Tottenham last weekend. They are still searching for the first win under boss Roberto de Zerbi but few complaints will be made given they are seventh in the division.

Away from home, the Seagulls have picked up seven points from 12 on offer with victories at Man Utd and West Ham, a draw with Liverpool and a defeat to Fulham. Their road games tend to produce goals with 14 produced from their last four.

Brentford vs Brighton: Match Stats

The match prices on this one look about right so better value comes from the player markets. Brighton didn’t create much against Tottenham last week but they did create a couple of chances from set-pieces. On the flip side, Brentford gave away numerous chances to Newcastle from the same route so this looks worth exploring.

Lewis Dunk is the main source of threat from corners and history has shown he can find the back of the net when targeted. He is a big 12/1 against a team that showed clear vulnerability from set-pieces at the weekend. At even bigger odds (14/1) Adam Webster is another who could be backed to net at any time.
