EFL: Brentford vs Cardiff

Brentford vs Cardiff

After 42 rounds at the Championship 2020/21, Cardiff City earned 60 points and ranked 8th in the standings while Brentford, although only over 4 levels, was 14 points more, not to mention playing less than 1 game. In other words, from here it can be drawn to conclude that the chance to enter the Top 6 to participate in the playoff round to qualify for the Premier League promotion is not much for Cardiff.

Indeed, the Welsh team is 11 points behind Barnley (6th) when the season has only 4 rounds (including this round), so even after round 43, the season can officially close with Cardiff. 

So in terms of motivation, Brentford is somewhat superior because the gap with the 7th team (Reading) is 7 points, not yet at the level of worrying. However, in recent times this team has shown signs of decline. No wonder that the last 5/6 rounds in the First Division, Brentford had to divide points with the opponent, including 2 matches that ended with a score of 0-0.

Particularly at home, the last 3 consecutive matches Brentford did not win once and all lost according to the Asian handicap. The remaining Cardiff are surprisingly uncomfortable on the away field: only lost 1/10 of the last game away from home in all competitions (winning 5). Hence this match may end in a draw.
