Two newly promoted teams, Brentford and Norwich, will face off for the first time in the Premier League for the 2021-2022 season. The home team has clearly declined in the last few rounds, after playing very well in the previous period. While the away team is still struggling to find the first victory. With such a bad performance, there is not much hope for the “canary” to win points after this trip.
Brentford enters this match after a 1-3 loss to Burnley. Midfielder Saman Ghoddos’ second-half goal brought little honor to the west London team. This was the period when Brentford was in very bad form and they even received 3 consecutive defeats in the Premier League. The last victory that this team had was in the English League Cup when they faced Stoke. Specifically, Brentford has only won the last 1/5 of their Premier League matches, lost to Chelsea, Burnley and Leicester City and only won at West Ham’s field.
Despite the decline in form, Brentford is still the rookie with the best record to date. After going through 10 rounds they won 3, drew 3 and lost 4. Currently with 12 points, Brentford is in 12th place on the table. They are 5 points ahead of the relegation group and need to quickly return to the winning trajectory. The home team at Brentford Community will have a difficult series in the next 5 matches against Newcastle, Everton, Tottenham, Leeds and Watford. Therefore, against an equal opponent like Norwich, it is not advisable to lose points at home.
Two years ago, Norwich also said goodbye to the Premier League after only 1 season of attendance. That situation is very likely to be repeated this season, when the “canary” is in very bad shape after being promoted. Last weekend, Norwich’s bad form continued with a 1-2 defeat when facing Leeds at home. Norwich head into this match with two consecutive losses and are looking for their first win of the tournament. Drawing 2 and losing 8 after 10 rounds is a bad achievement for Norwich.
Of course, they also finished at the bottom of the table with only 2 points and became the top candidates for the relegation ticket. In the last 5 matches, they lost 3 and did not score any of the 5 matches mentioned above. Their only win this season was in the League Cup, against Bournemouth. In the Premier League alone, Norwich have not won in 20 consecutive matches. Up to the present time, they are having the lowest scoring record with only 3 goals after 10 matches. The away team also set a sad record when conceding the highest, with 25 goals conceded since the beginning of the tournament.
