            Wolves vs Brentford: Betting Tips, Match Prediction & Preview

            The Molineux hosts Wolves and Brentford this Saturday in the Premier League. Wolves are sitting on the edge of the top half of the table and need a win to move into the top half whereas Brentford are a little too close to the relegation zone.

            Wolves take on Brentford this weekend in a game that if they pick up three points, they can move into the top half of the Premier League. Brentford also need the win as they find themselves too close for comfort to the drop zone.

            Wolves currently sit tenth in the Premier League after 23 games. Wolves have nine wins, five draws and nine losses, leaving them on 32 points, just one point from Newcastle and three points from Brighton.

            In front of goal, Wolves had a slow start but have now scored 33 goals in 23 games, giving them an average of 1.5 goals a game. Wolves have also kept up defensively this season, having conceded 36 goals and have kept four clean sheets.

            Brentford, on the other hand, currently sit 15th in the Premier League. In 22 games, The Bees have six wins, four draws and 12 losses which leaves them on 22 points, just three points above the relegation zone but with one game in hand on those around them.

            The Bees have a slightly worse scoring record than Wolves. In 21 games, Brentford have scored 32 in 22 games which gives them an average of 1.45 goals a game. Similarly to Brentford in front of goal, The Bees have failed to impress defensively. Brentford have conceded 39 goals and have kept just three clean sheets.

            Wolves and Brentford have met 34 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1935. Wolves have a marginally better record in the fixture with 17 wins in comparison to Brentford’s 12 wins, with the other five games ending in a draw.

            The last five games in the fixture have seen three Wolves wins and two draws. However, in these five games, only one game has seen only one team on the scoresheet.

            Marino Lemina opened the scoring in the 13th minute, but Yoane Wissa equalised for Brentford within three minutes. However, a brace from Hwang Hee-chan and a goal from Jeanricner Bellegarde gave Wolves the 4 - 1 win over Brentford.

            The next meeting was in the Third Round of the FA Cup. Following a red card to Joao Gomes in the ninth minute, Neal Maupay gave Brentford the lead just before halftime. Tommy Doyle grabbed a goal in the second half to secure the 1 - 1 draw and the replay.

            This replay saw Nathan Collins open the scoring for Brentford with Nelson Semedo equalising before halftime. Maupay regained the lead for Brentford early in the second half, but Nathan Fraser equalised to send the tie to extra time. A penalty from Matheus Cunha grabbed the 3 - 2 win for Wolves.

            Including these, in their last five games in all competitions, Wolves have three wins, one draw and one loss.

            The Fourth Round of the FA Cup saw a fiery clash between Wolves and West Brom. Pedro Neto and Cunha both scored to give Wolves the big 2 - 0 win over their local rivals.

            Back in the Premier League, Wolves hosted Manchester United. Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Hojlund gave United the 2 - 0 lead at halftime. A penalty from Pablo Sarabia got Wolves in the game but Scott McTominay immediately restored United’s two-goal cushion. Goals from Max Kilman and Neto drew Wolves level late on but a 97th minute goal from Kobbie Mainoo grabbed a 4 - 3 win for United.

            The last time out for Wolves was a trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. Cole Palmer and Thiago Silva were on the scoresheet for Chelsea, but a hat-trick from Cunha and an own goal from Axel Disasi gave Wolves the 4 - 2 win.

            Also including the games against Wolves, Brenford have one win, one draw and four losses.

            Keane Lewis-Potter opened the scoring for Brentford in just the second minute against Crystal Palace. However, a brace from Michael Olise and a goal from Eberechi Eze gave Palace the 3 - 1 win.

            Nottingham Forest opened the scoring early on this time, with Danilo scoring in the third minute. Ivan Toney equalised for The Bees and Ben Mee gave them the lead early in the second half. Chris Wood equalised for Forest but Maupay grabbed the 3 - 2 win for Brentford.

            Maupay was on the scoresheet again for Brentford against Tottenham, along with Toney. But goals from Destiny Udogie, Brennan Johnson and Richarlison gave Tottenham the 3 - 2 win.

            Brentford suffered a 3-1 loss at the hands of Manchester City on Monday night, as despite taking the lead through Neal Maupay in the first half, Phil Foden scored a hat-trick for the champions to take them within two points off league leaders Liverpool.
