Though it’s unlikely that either of these teams will catch Watford in the second automatic promotion spot (Bournemouth are eight points behind, Brentford 10), both will be looking to finish as high as possible to give themselves a favourable draw in the play-offs.
Bournemouth head into the match on a remarkable seven-game winning streak in league play, during which they’ve seen off the likes of Norwich and Swansea.
Brentford can overtake the South Coast side if they win here and they’ll still retain a game in hand. But the Bees have drawn six of their last seven Championship games, only beating Preston North End (5-0) during that run.
As if this match wasn’t mouth-watering enough, this is a battle between the English second tier’s highest scorers, with Bournemouth notching 73 goals so far and Brentford managing 72, leaving them a respective six and seven goals clear of any other team.
Bournemouth will look to keep up their good late season form as they host Brentford in an English Championship fixture at the Vitality Stadium. The Cherries are at the peak of their powers at the moment and should be too strong for Brentford, who are going through a slump.
Bournemouth were super in their previous Championship outing as they claimed a 4-1 victory at Millwall. Philip Billing, Arnaut Groeneveld and David Brooks all got on the score sheet in the first half while Dominic Solanke added a fourth goal after the break.
Jonathan Woodgate’s men are having an excellent end to the season and have won their last seven Championship matches. That run has propelled them to third on the table and they have all but secured a playoff berth.
Bournemouth’s fine form in recent weeks has been driven by a potent attacking line with Dominic Solanke, David Brooks and Arnaut Groeneveld all among the goals lately. The one blemish in an otherwise spotless run is a slightly poor defence that is without a clean sheet in their last four matches.
Brentford were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Cardiff City in their previous Championship fixture. Tarique Fosu’s equaliser midway through the second half was enough to earn them the point.
