EFL Cup: Brentford vs Cottagers

At the beginning of August, the two teams met in the match called "the most expensive in the world": the playoff final won the final ticket to attend the Premier League 20201. At that time, Brentford was judged better and accepted.  1/4 like the confrontation this time in the English League Cup playground.

In the end, everyone was clear: Fulham won 2-1 after 120 minutes of playing.  So, now the two sides are in two different worlds.  Brenford continued to fight in the first division in England and remained determined for the first time in history to play in the Premier League, while the joy of promotion soon passed with Fulham.  They are having a difficult start in the Premier League 2020/21: losing 3 matches since the beginning of the season.

That could affect the performance of the two teams in the fourth round of the League Cup tonight.  Although Brentford wants to play in the Premier League, he certainly does not ignore the opportunity to "get the number" by achieving high results in a secondary playground like the League Cup.  In addition, this match Brenford is also played at home and they also want to "revenge" the defeat of the playoff finals nearly 2 months ago.

In fact, earlier in the English League Cup this season, Brentford repeatedly defeated two Premier League representatives, Southampton and West Brom (also a rookie like Fulham).  As mentioned, Fulham at this moment have no other mind but to put all his strength into the Premier League front.
