EFL: Cardiff vs Brentford

Losing to last-placed Luton in the last round, Brentford is showing signs of a noticeable slowdown recently. Although not yet knocked out of the Play-Off group, but if they play like this, the price for the next time is very expensive. In this round, Brentford continues to face a tough challenge called Cardiff. The name is also very thirsty to race, it is clear that there are many reasons for Brentford to worry about the next trip.

Playing fair with opponents throughout the match, but Cardiff proved less than cold and paid with the minimum defeat against Nottingham. It was also the second consecutive defeat that this team had to receive after losing on the pitch of Stoke City earlier. Obviously this is a period where Cardiff has not shown stability when winning 2 but also received 2 defeats in the last 5 rounds. With that result, Coach Neil Harris's army is getting 50 points after 35 rounds and ranked 10th in the rankings, inferior to the Play-Off group with a distance of 6 points. With that gap, of course, the dream of being able to play in the Premier League next year is still intact. In particular, Cardiff has reason to be confident, because at home they still show that they are not easy opponents to be bullied when only losing the last 1/9 matches.

Ollie Watkins's late goal at the end of the match was not enough to help Brentford avoid 1-2 defeat on Luton's field. That of course is a very disappointing outcome, because their opponents are dying at the bottom of the rankings with an unimpressive performance. Obviously the army of coach Thomas Frank is showing signs of slowing down when not winning in the last 4 matches, including losing 1 and drawing 3. In particular, their away record is quite faint when winning only 2 matches 9 times away from home. At this time, although still maintaining the 5th position with 56 points, if it is going to play like it is now, it is difficult for Brentford to achieve the set goal.
