Brentford vs Lille Lineups and Last Match

Brentford

The Bees went to the States for the Premier League Summer Series but they had little success. Brentford lost their first 2 games before drawing 3-3 vs Aston Villa in their most recent match. The Bees conceded 8 goals in those 3 games and failed to even beat amateurs Boreham Wood after a 1-1 draw, so they remain winless since the end of last season.

Brentford's trusted goalie David Raya is about to leave the club so it will be Flekken or Srakosha starting between the posts in this match. The team's most influential inner midfielder Norgaard remains sidelined.

Predicted Lineup – Flekken (GK), Roerslev, Mee, Pinnock, Henry, Janelt, Jensen, Damsgaard, Mbeumo, Schade & Wissa

Lille

Les Dogues have been scoring goals for fun this pre-season, the culmination being their 7-2 thumping of Cercle Brugge. Lille won their first 3 friendlies this summer in impressive style but in their most recent test, they lost 1-2 vs Empoli. It's worth stressing that a lot of the regulars were rested for that last match.

Some decent players have left the club but Lille already found quality replacements. Umtiti is back and will add class to the defence. Also, the Icelandic playmaker Haraldsson has joined and in just 2 friendlies he was involved he scored 5 goals. Centre-back Djalo is the only long-term absentee.

Predicted Lineup – Chevalier (GK), Umtiti, Diakite, Yoro, Ismaily, Baleba, Andre, Cabella, Ounas, David & Yazici

Starting Lineups

*Lineups are usually announced 1hr before kick-off

Player to Watch: Jonathan David

The Canadian spearhead of Lille's attack Jonathan David scored 24 Ligue 1 goals in 37 appearances last season. He already has 4 goals in as many friendlies this summer. Now against a Brentford defensive line that is yet to keep a clean sheet, David will be itching to score again.

We back the talented striker to do so.
