          Brentford vs Newcastle: Preview & Prediction

          Newcastle makes the trip to West London to take on Brentford in the last game of the season. The Magpies are looking for sixth-place spot whereas Brentford are safe but look to put more room between themselves and the relegation zone.

          Date: 19/5/2024

          Kick off time: 16:00

          Location: Gtech Community Stadium

          Assured safety for Brentford means The Bees will just be looking for a good end of the season, whereas Newcastle need a win to clinch sixth place.

          Brentford currently sit 16th in the Premier League going into the last game of the season. In 37 games, The Bees have ten wins, nine draws and 18 losses, leaving them on 39 points, 13 points above the relegation zone.

          The Bees have been positive in front of goal this season despite the rest of the season, scoring 54 goals in 37 games, an average of 1.46 goals a game. However, Brentford have been weak defensively, conceding 61 goals and keeping seven clean sheets.

          Newcastle, on the other hand, currently sit seventh in the Premier League going into the last game of the season. In 37 games, The Magpies have 17 wins, six draws and 14 losses which leaves them on 57 points, three points behind Chelsea and level with Manchester United.

          The Magpies have been scoring for fun this season, scoring 81 goals in 37 games which is an average of 2.18 goals a game. Newcastle have been a little less consistent in defence, conceding 59 goals and keeping ten clean sheets.

          Brentford and Newcastle have met 17 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1934. Newcastle have the better record in the fixture with 12 wins in comparison to Brentford’s four wins, with the other game ending in a draw.

          The last five games in this fixture have seen four wins for Newcastle and one draw, with Brentford last winning in a League Cup tie in 2020. This fixture often sees both sides on the scoresheet, with three of the last five clashes seeing both teams score.

          Recent Form

          In their last five games in all competitions, Brentford have three wins, one draw and one loss.

          After a goalless first half, an own goal from Oliver Luke Arblaster opened the scoring for The Bees. Frank Onyeka added another in the 93rd minute to secure the 2 - 0 win for Brentford over Sheffield United, who had just two shots on target.

          Yoane Wissa grabbed two goals in the first half to give Brentford the 2 - 0 lead over Luton at halftime. Ethan Pinnock, Keane Lewis-Potter and Kevin Schade all added to the scoreline as Luke Berry grabbed a late consolation goal in the 5 - 1 win for Brentford.

          However, the next time out for Brentford saw them slump to defeat against Everton. Idrissa Gueye scored the only goal of the game on the hour mark with Everton’s only shot on target to give The Toffees the 1 - 0 win.

          Brentford were unable to find the back of the net again against Fulham. Both sides had just three shots on target and failed to convert any of them as the game ended in a 0 - 0 draw and a point each.

          The last time out for Brentford was against Bournemouth. The scoring started late, with Bryan Mbeumo opening the scoring in the 86th minute but Dominic Solanke equalised with one minute to go. However, Wissa popped up with a goal in the fifth minute of extra time to give Brentford the 2 - 1 win.

          In their last six games in all competitions, Newcastle have three wins, one draw and two losses.

          In a two minute period in the first half, both Alexander Isak and Anthony Gordon picked up a goal to give Newcastle the 2 - 0 lead over Tottenham at halftime. Isak added another goal early in the second half and was joined on the scoresheet by Schar to give Newcastle the 4 - 0 win.

          However, following this big win, Newcastle were shocked by Crystal Palace. Jean-Philippe Mateta scored both goals in the second half to give Palace the shock 2 - 0 win.

          Newcastle bounced back against Sheffield United. Anel Ahmedhodzic opened the scoring for Sheffield United in the five minute, but a brace from Isak, an own goal from Ben Osborn and goals from Bruno Guimaraes and Callum Wilson gave Newcastle the 5 - 1 win.

          Wilson was on the scoresheet again for Newcastle in the first half along with Sean Longstaff and Guimaraes to give Newcastle the 3 - 0 lead over Burnley at halftime. Isak added another as Dara O’Shea scored a consolation goal in the 4 - 1 win for The Magpies.

          Joel Veltman opened the scoring for Brighton in the 18th minute but Longstaff equalised just before halftime. Neither side could find another goal as the game finished in a 1 - 1 draw.

          Newcastle suffered a 3-2 defeat to Manchester United on Wednesday night as Kobbie Mainoo, Amad Diallo and Rasmus Hojlund all got on the scoresheet while Anthony Gordon and Lewis Hall's strikes turned out to be mere consolation goals. They will have to match or better Manchester United's result at Brighton if they are to qualify for any form of European football.

          Footy Accumulators Prediction

          Newcastle are in need of a win as they fight it out for some level of European football but it’s likely to be a close game with both sides on the scoresheet, Isak a likely suspect to score for The Magpies. Brentford 1 - 2 Newcastle
