Today's tips Napoli vs Bologna Lazio vs Fiorentina Empoli vs Inter Milan Cagliari vs Roma

Brentford play their first-ever Premier League game at home to Arsenal in the opening game of the new 2021/22 sason. Newly promoted teams often carry a threat of the unknown in the early stages of the season and Arsenal underperformed in the last campaign, so Brentford will feel they can cause an upset in front of their own fans.

Top Three Predictions for Brentford vs Arsenal

All of our tips contain no bias and have been researched using the latest stats and figures available at the time of publication.

The odds provided are up to date at the time of publication. Odds are subject to change though and you should always check with your bookmaker before placing any bets. Our recommended bookmaker for this match is Netbet.

Draw

We've backed a draw between these two London clubs based on a gut feeling rather than statistics as the pair have only met once in recent years and that was back in 2018. Brentford impressed during pre-season, picking up four wins, a draw, and just one defeat, while Arsenal failed to win any of their friendlies, losing three times and drawing once.

BTTS

Both teams scored when these two sides last met and we're expecting more of the same on Friday night. Three of Brentford's last four matches have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard while four of Arsenal's last six outings have also produced goals at both ends of the pitch, so you can see why we're not backing either side to keep a clean sheet.

Over 2.5 Goals

Four goals we're scored in the 2018 League Cup tie between Brentford and Arsenal and we're predicting goals to be scored when the pair finally meeting in the Premier League this Friday. Three of Brentford's last four games have produced over 2.5 goals and the same can be said for four of Arsenal's last six fixtures, so you can see why we believe Friday's game could end 2-2 or even 3-3.

Can Brentford make their mark on the Premier League against the Gunners?

Brentford will take another look at striker Ivan Toney ahead of the Arsenal game as the former Newcastle front-man picked up a slight knock in pre-season but is expected to start against the Gunners. Joshua Dasilva will miss the game though and isn't expected back anytime soon, unfortunately. The Bees ended pre-season with a 2-1 win over Valencia and will be confident that they can cause an upset against Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta's side will be without Thomas Partey and Edward Nketiah, both of whom are expected back from injury next month, while centre-back Gabriel has also been ruled out due to a knee injury and Rob Holding isn't expected to feature due to a lack of match fitness. Pre-season friendlies don't always mean much but Arsenal's failure to beat Hibs, Rangers, Chelsea or Tottenham suggests that they might not quite be up to speed ahead of what is bound to be a tricky first game of the season.

Predicted Lineups

Arsenal predicted lineup (team should play in 4-2-3-1): Leno; Chambers, White, Mari, Tierney; Lokonga, Xhaka; Pepe, Smith Rowe, Saka; Aubameyang.

Brentford probable lineup (organized in a 3-4-1-2 formation): Raya; Jansson, Ajer, Pinnock; Roerslev, Janelt, Norgaard, Canos; Fosu-Henry; Mbeumo, Toney
