Brentford to Win at Half Time and Full Time

Many doubted that Brentford can survive last season in Premier League, but they did and now they started the new season with four points from three games. Meanwhile, Colchester started the season in League Two with four points from five games.

So, the two teams are not miles away just in terms of quality, but Brentford is actually in better form as well. With that in mind, we expect a commanding performance and a win for the guests after they take the lead in first half.

Colchester vs Brentford preview: Team news, latest form, and possible lineups

Before you decide on a bet for this game, let's take a closer look at both teams first:

Colchester

After the first five rounds at the start of the new League Two season, Colchester is sitting in the eighteenth place with just four points. Clearly, that's far from a great start for which their fans were hoping for, but it's not that far from the actual expectations from this team. On the bright side, Colchester reached this stage in EFL Cup by eliminating the favoured Ipswich in the last round.

When it comes to team news, Colchester's captain Tommy Smith remains out with a foot injury. The team will also be without Emyr Huws.

Colchester predicted lineup:

Hornby -Tchamedeu, Chambers, Eastman, Kazeem – Marshall-Miranda, Skuse – Hannant, Chilvers, Nouble – Sears

Brentford

Minutes separated Brentford from getting a point over the weekend against Fulham, but Mitrovic scored a late goal to deny them. Still, Brentford started the new season in Premier League with one win, one draw, and one loss, which is currently enough to put them in the eighth place in the standings.

Meanwhile, the team is without injured Ethan Pinnock, Sergi Canos, and Kristoffer Ajer.

Brentford predicted lineup:

Strakosha – Roerslev, Jansson, Sorensen, Hickey – Baptiste, Onyeka, Janelt – Ghoddos, Dervisoglu, Lewis-Potter
