Bournemouth vs Brentford: Preview, Prediction & Betting Picks

Bournemouth host West Londoners Brentford in the Premier League, with both teams hoping for three points to help end the season on a high.

Date: 05/11/24

Kick-off time: 5am (Pacific Time)

Venue: Vitality Stadium

It has been a very good season for Bournemouth, who are in a strong position to finish in the top half of the table. In recent weeks, they have been one of the form teams in the league, having won four and drawn two of their last nine. As a result, they have climbed to 10th, and are within touching distance of West Ham in ninth, who they trail on goal difference. However, they are just two and one points ahead of Wolves and Brighton, so victory is crucial in order to maintain their position.

In contrast, it has been a disappointing campaign for Brentford, who have spent most of it in the bottom part of the table. It was always slated to be a difficult season without their main man Ivan Toney for the most part, but they perhaps struggled more than expected. They now sit in 16th, and by picking up seven points from their last nine available they have ensured survival.

Both teams should be confident in scoring, as they are facing defences who have conceded 60 goals or more. In Bournemouth’s last five games, there have been over 2.5 goals in four of them. This has only been the case for Brentford in two of their last five, but they were involved in a 5-1 win and 3-3 draw. Each side is spearheaded by top strikers in Dominic Solanke and Toney, though the latter is scoreless in 10. Solanke has enjoyed a fantastic campaign, scoring 18 goals. Only four players have scored more in the league.

These two teams have met just three times in the Premier League, all coming since 2022. Bournemouth are winless in these games, with Brentford winning two. The reverse fixture earlier this season resulted in the points being shared, in a 2-2 draw at the Gtech Community Stadium. Mathias Jensen gave the hosts a very early lead, but this was cancelled out by Solanke on the half hour mark. Bournemouth completed the turnaround with a David Brooks strike, but there was late drama as Bryan Mbeumo levelled it in stoppage time.

Form Guide

Bournemouth Form Guide

In their last five games, Bournemouth have won two, lost two and drawn one. It has been a mixed stretch from the Cherries, though they are comfortably in mid-table. This run started with a 2-2 draw at home to Manchester United. The hosts were the much superior side in terms of shot creation and production, attempting 20 to their opponents’ eight, however United edged the possession. They went ahead early through Dominic Solanke, but this was cancelled out by Bruno Fernandes just past the half hour mark. The lead was regained before half-time thanks to a Justin Kluivert strike, but the points were shared as Fernandes grabbed his second from the penalty spot, after the referee awarded a controversial penalty.

They followed this with a 3-1 loss at Champions League chasing Aston Villa. They went ahead through Solanke, but three unanswered strikes from Morgan Rogers, Moussa Diaby and Leon Bailey condemned them to defeat. They returned to winning ways with a narrow 1-0 victory at Wolves. Antoine Semenyo put them in front before half-time, and this was a lead they would not relinquish. This is despite having Milos Kerkez sent off with just over 10 minutes to go.

A large 3-0 win against Brighton continued momentum, despite seeing much less of the ball. Bournemouth were able to take advantage of their chances, with Marcos Sensi, Enes Unal and Kluivert all on the scoresheet. Their most recent game saw them on the wrong end of this scoreline as they lost at Arsenal. The opener did not come until the stroke of half-time, and it was a Bukayo Saka penalty which put the hosts in front. The visitors offered more of a fight after the break, but goals from Leandro Trossard and Declan Rice secured the win.

Brentford Form Guide

In their last five games, Brentford have won two, drawn two and lost one. It has been a good stretch for the Bees as they officially secured Premier League safety. Their latest game was a 0-0 draw with West London neighbours Fulham. It was an even game with Brentford edging possession, and Fulham attempting more shots. However, neither side could find a breakthrough.

This followed a narrow 1-0 loss at Everton. Idrissa Gueye was the only goalscorer with the Toffees’ only shot on target as the visitors failed to take advantage of their chances. They were unable to carry any momentum from their previous game at Luton. They were convincing winners, thrashing them 5-1. Yoanne Wissa scored a first-half brace to give them a commanding lead, before Ethan Pinnock, Keane Lewis-Potter and Kevin Schade added further strikes. Luke Berry scored a late consolation.

They had beaten another relegation threatened team in Sheffield United the week prior, as they won 2-0 at home. It was a fairly even game, but Brentford were the only side able to find the back of the net. They went ahead midway through the second half after Oliver Luke Arblaster converted into his own net. It remained this way until stoppage time when Frank Onyeka added an insurance goal. The first game of this run was a thrilling 3-3 draw at Aston Villa. Ollie Watkins put Villa ahead against his former team, before Morgan Rogers doubled their advantage shortly after the restart. The Bees then scored three goals in nine minutes to turn the game on its head. They could not hold on though, as Watkins netted his second of the afternoon.

FlashPicks Prediction

Bournemouth have been one of the form sides in the league, and are in a good place to finish in the top half of the table. Brentford secured safety, so the pressure is off, but we expect the hosts to edge the result in a close game – Bournemouth 2-1 Brentford
