Brentford vs Leicester Betting Tips & Odds

Premier League predictions ahead of the Foxes' trip to the capital to face high-flying Brentford. Leicester are in the midst of a losing streak and another poor result this weekend could see the visitors slip back into the relegation zone, while a victory for the Bees could take them into the top six.

Brentford to Win

Our first Brentford vs Leicester prediction regards the end result. Brentford might not have a good record against Leicester but they head into Saturday's clash on the back of three wins from their last six league games, which includes two of their last three matches at home. Leicester have lost each of their last five matches in all competitions which includes being knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship side Blackburn Rovers.

Ivn Toney to Score

Our second Brentford vs Leicester prediction sees us delve into the Anytime Goalscorer market. Ivan Toney has been fantastic for Brentford once again this season, scoring 16-goals in the Premier League alone. The 27-year-old has scored 6-goals in his last 10 appearances in the Premier League, including a goal in the midweek victory over Southampton, and we're backing the in-form forward to score against Leicester on Saturday.

Brentford vs Leicester Lineups

Brentford

Brentford recovered well from their defeat at Goodison Park last weekend by securing a 2-0 win at Southampton in midweek. Toney, who else, opened the scoring in the 32nd-minute with his 16th league goal of the campaign. The visitors made sure of the win deep into second-half stoppage-time when Wissa made it 2-0 after good work from Toney who claimed the assist.

Keane Lewis-Potter and Thomas Strakosha are expected to miss out this weekend through injury but there is a chance that Mads Roerslev Rasmussen could feature after suffering a minor hamstring issue in training.

Predicted Lineup – Raya (GK), Mee, Henry, Pinnock, Hickey, Nørgaard, Jensen, Janelt, Toney, Mbeumo & Schade

Leicester

Leicester's losing run continued when they played host to Chelsea last weekend. The Foxes lost the game 3-1 and had defender Faes sent-off late on to add injury to insult. Daka scored what turned out to be a consolation goal for the hosts and Rogers will be hoping that his striker goes on a good run in front of goal now as he has replaced Vardy as the club's main striker.

James Justin, Youri Tielemans, Victor Kristiansen, Ryan Bertrand and Jannik Vestergaard are highly unlikely to feature this weekend due to injury, while Wout Faes is suspended and will be a big miss at the back.

Predicted Lineup – Ward (GK), Pereira, Amartey, Castagne, Evans, Souttar, Mendy, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Ịheanachọ & Daka

Player to Watch: Bryan Mbeumo

Brentford's 23-year-old Cameroon international has enjoyed another good season for the club.

The former Troyes man has chipped in with 5-goals and 3-assists in the Premier League this season, making him one of the club's main sources of goals.

Ivan Toney takes all the limelight at Brentford, for good reason, but it is all the hard work that the likes of Mbeumo put in each week that have contributed greatly to Brentford's impressive two seasons in the Premier League.

We're backing Mbeumo to have another good game this weekend against Leicester and that will likely lead to another impressive 3pts on the board for the Bees.
