There will be at least two teams from London in the last four of this season’s competition, with one of them coming from this tie.
Chelsea are the favourites to prevail and remain on course to lift this trophy for the first time since 2015.
But following their strong start to the season, the Blues have stuttered of late; winning just one of their last four matches.
Thomas Tuchel’s side also required penalties to prevail in their previous two games in this competition, seeing off Aston Villa and Southampton.
That will encourage Brentford, who are seeking a second successive EFL Cup semi-final.
The Bees, who eventually succumbed to Tottenham Hotspur last season, have suffered just one defeat in their five most recent outings.
