The match

Leicester host Brentford at the King Power, in the first round of the English Premier League. Taking into account the incredibly high standards Brendan Rodgers has set throughout his tenure at Leicester, last year’s eighth place finish is not regarded as extremely successful, given that the team was battling for the top four in the two seasons before that. However, they have endured a positive preseason, winning four of the six friendlies they played, including a win over Sevilla in their strongest preparation test. They have also made headlines across Europe, being the only team who has yet to sign a single player in the summer transfer window, in what should be slightly troubling for Leicester fans. The hosts finished last season strongly though, winning three of their last four league games and scoring thirteen goals in the process. They have never lost against Brentford, winning both of their meetings last season. 

Brentford’s debut season has to be considered a huge success. Thomas Frank quickly eased any relegation fears for the newly-promoted team, which he guided to a thirteenth place finish and eleven points clear of the relegation places. They have also managed to keep their core of players that led them to success last season, with only Christian Eriksen leaving for Manchester United as a free agent. The additions of Ben Mee and Thomas Strakosha have certainly bolstered the Bees’ defensive options as well, something that showed in their preseason friendlies, where they kept two clean sheets in their last three. Brentford are also a strong away team, managing to win seven of their last eleven games on the road, yet they will have to overcome the fact that they have never beaten Leicester home nor away in a competitive game.

Key Statistics

  • Two of Brentford’s last three Premier League games have seen both teams score
  • Seven of Leicester’s last nine games have seen both teams score
  • Leicester have scored in nineteen of their last twenty-one home games

  • All of their past three meetings featured both teams scoring

The bet of our experts

Leicester have failed to strengthen this summer, while Brentford were inconsistent away from home last season and have a terrible tradition against the Foxes. With no team making a convincing case to back them in this game, Both Teams To Score is the way to go.
