Brentford vs Bournemouth: Championship play-off preview and predictions

The Bees were beaten 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium on Monday, with Arnaut Danjuma’s goal giving the Cherries a slender advantage.

Thomas Frank’s side will have to come from behind to reach the Wembley final, as they did last season, when beating Swansea 3-2 on aggregate having lost the first-leg 1-0 away from home.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Brentford vs Bournemouth is scheduled for a 12:30pm kick-off on Saturday, May 21, 2021.

The game will be played at the Brentford Community Stadium in front of a limited-capacity crowd as fans return following an easing in Covid restrictions.

TV channel: The match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers can stream the game live via the SkyGo app.

Team news

Brentford have no fresh injury concerns and could welcome Rico Henry and Henrik Dalsgaard back into the starting lineup, after both came through substitute appearances on their returns from injury in the first-leg.

Bournemouth manager Jonathan Woodgate rates both Ben Pearson and captain Steve Cook as “50-50” to be fit after being forced off in the first-leg.

Standard Sport prediction

The Bees were lacklustre in the first-leg and though Thomas Frank has promised a different game in the second-leg, Bournemouth’s prowess on the counter-attack with the likes of David Brooks and Danjuma means they will be a threat.

1-1 draw – Bournemouth go through.
