Prediction and analysis of the match between Chelsea vs Brentford in Round 33 of the English Premier League on April 27.
The match between Chelsea and Brentford is a clash between two mid-table teams that are no longer in contention for European Cup spots. Chelsea’s recent form has been very poor, but Brentford’s situation is not much better.
In their last 7 matches, Brentford have lost 3, drawn 3, and only won 1. Coach Thomas Frank’s squad has been pushed out of the race for a European Cup spot.
The main reason for Brentford’s consecutive drop of points is their weak defense, which has conceded 19 goals in their recent run of matches. In addition, when their star striker Ivan Toney is tightly marked by opposing defenders, the supporting options for the English star rarely produce effective results.
Coach Thomas Frank’s team always knows how to make things difficult for stronger opponents. However, their 9th place ranking – a not-bad result for a club with Brentford’s abilities – may cause the players to lose motivation in the final stages of the season when there is no longer a goal to strive for.
Meanwhile, Coach Frank Lampard is struggling to find his first win since returning to Chelsea. Enthusiasm and effectiveness in his job are something the English coach has not achieved. The former midfielder is still inexperienced in his managerial role.
Chelsea is not showing any progress and even shows signs of decline. The team at Stamford Bridge under Coach Graham Potter often lacks efficiency in finishing, but they still perform well in ball control and creating chances. Currently, Chelsea is still struggling to organize their playing style.
The positive sign for Chelsea appeared only briefly in their recent loss to Real Madrid. They pressured their opponents and created some notable chances, but errors and mistakes still appeared at crucial moments.
- Chelsea: Kepa; Azpilicueta, W. Fofana, Silva, Chilwell; Kante, Fernandez, Kovacic; Mudryk, Felix, Sterling
- Brentford: Raya; Hickey, Mee, Pinnock, Henry; Jensen, Janelt, Dasilva; Mbeumo, Toney, Damsgaard
Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Brentford.
