First Goalscorer Carlton Morris 6/1

The stats behind our Luton vs Brentford predictions:

  • Both teams have scored in each of Luton’s previous five Premier League home games.
  • Brentford have lost nine of their last 11 Premier League away matches, six by a one-goal margin.
  • No Luton player has more Premier League goals this season than Carlton Morris (9).
  • The Bees have conceded the opening goal in each of their previous five Premier League away matches.

Can Luton make the escape?

Even with Everton and Nottingham Forest both being deducted points, Luton are in the relegation zone and need to turn things around quickly. Although the Hatters beat Bournemouth recently, they remain one point from safety, with five games left to play.

It wasn’t too long ago that Luton looked to be in control of the relegation battle. Despite sitting in the bottom three, Luton had games in hand on the teams above them. But they lost that and the teams around them were picking up vital points. In the league, it’s now just one win for Luton since the start of February, a run which has seen them lose eight of their 12 games with three draws.

For Brentford, there is still some danger of the drop. The Bees are now seven points ahead of Luton but know that defeat will draw them right back into the battle. Brentford only have a bit of breathing space thanks to their 2-0 win over Sheffield United last weekend, which ended a nine-game winless run in the Premier League.

Luton vs Brentford match tip

Brentford to not score in the first half @ 21/20 by Midnite

One of the reasons Brentford are struggling of late has been their inability to score in the first half. Since drawing 2-2 with Tottenham at half time in their opening Premier League game this season, Brentford haven’t scored more than once in the first half in any of their last 32 league matches. In fact, they’ve not scored in the opening 45 minutes in any of their last five, with 10 of their last 11 goals coming after the break.

Given their standing in the table, and Luton’s more obvious relegation battle, Brentford are the favourites for this one. Recent history will also have played a part, with Brentford winning six of their past seven games against Luton.
