We are excited to usher in the new EPL season, kicking off on Friday, 13th August 2021. This campaign’s first match will see the gunners set camp at Brentford Community Stadium for the first time, in an elite competition, since 1947. That’s a relatively long time, but the two have recently met in a friendly match, June of 2021, and EFL’s round of 16 finals in 2018. The recent encounters were all played in Arsenal’s home ground, the Emirates Stadium. With the home team back to England’s elite league, we will have new Brentford vs Arsenal live scores, records and performances. FYI, the crowd is back, and so is the opportunity to enjoy the typical high-intensity football, previously shuttered by Covid 19 pandemic.
Brentford vs Arsenal Preview
The newly-promoted Brentford team has been on form since January 2021, losing only 3 out of 18 matches played at home. They have also drawn on four occasions, making an impressive record of 11 wins. Arsenal had a rather embarrassing campaign last season, failing to secure a European football slot and struggling to keep clean sheets. Using the Brentford vs Arsenal friendly game, the new EPL side proved its top quality and determination of clinging on this level.
Brentford vs Arsenal Head-to-Head Prediction
The gunners are not participating in any international competition. Hence, they only have to focus on the local league games. That’s why they are likely to give their best in each match, and so Mikel Arteta’s boys are most likely to take the win here.
Brentford vs Arsenal Goals
With Arsenal as the favorite team, we expect them to produce some goals – 2 or 3. However, they are ford of leaving gaps, giving the opponent multiple chances to score. This brings in the high likelihood of the Brentford v Arsenal match ending in an over 2.5.
Brentford vs Arsenal Both Teams to Score
The two teams are not the best when it comes to keeping clean sheets. Therefore, we anticipate to at least get a goal from each side.
