Brentford vs Tottenham head-to-head record – can the Bees level it all?

Brentford and Tottenham will open their new Premier League campaigns with the newest of London derbies. In the very short history of this rivalry, one can be forgiven to assume that the Spurs have been the dominant side. That is far from being the case though! Here is what the Brentford vs Tottenham head-to-head football stats tell us about this rivalry.

Brentford vs Tottenham head-to-head record

The Brentford vs Tottenham head-to-head shows that there had been only 5 previous clashes between the sides. All of those within the last few years. What’s even more interesting is that the Lillywhites have won just 2 of those 5 games against the Bees. Here is the official Brentford vs Tottenham head-to-head record:

  • Brentford wins: 1
  • Draws: 2
  • Tottenham wins: 2

However, what is far more interesting is that the Bees are currently on a 3-game unbeaten run in this fixture: 1 win and 2 draws. Also, when Brentford have hosted this duel, only 2 such occasions so far, neither team has been able to win. The 2 matches at Brentford’s ground, both Premier League fixtures, have finished in draws. 

Another interesting stat regarding this clash is that in 4 of the 5 previous meetings there had been a goal scored inside the opening 15 minutes. Each team did that twice to take early leads. 

Last season Brentford beat Tottenham 3-1 away from home in May to record their first-ever win in this fixture. Earlier that season, on Boxing Day, the Bees thought they’d won when they led 2-0 at home. In the end, a late rally from Spurs saw them save a 2-2 draw. Here is how it all happened:

Brentford vs Tottenham head-to-head football trophy stats

Not surprisingly, Spurs have much more trophies in their cabinet. The Lillywhites have 28 trophies to Brentford’s just 3 football trophies. What is far more important though is that in the last few decades, neither team have won any major trophies.

With this rivalry having such a short history it is no surprise that there is no runaway top goalscorer in the matches between these sides. Three players have scored 2 goals each though, and two of those will be taking on to the pitch on Sunday to try and boost their records in this fixture. 

The Brentford vs Tottenham head-to-head top scorers are Bryan Mbeumo from Brentford with his brace in the last encounter between the teams; Hun-ming Son from Spurs scored a goal in both matches between the sides in 2021, and the only other player to have scored 2 goals in this fixture unsurprisingly is the ex-Spurs, now of Bayern, Harry Kane
