Our prediction for this Championship match:
Thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win over ten-man Birmingham City, Watford remained in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League. The Hornets are eyeing their third consecutive win in the Championship, but the midweek clash against Brentford will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts. You should bear in mind that Vladimir Ivic, who won the Manager of the Month award for Novemeber, and his men are after their third consecutive clean sheet in the league.
The Bees, on the other hand, did well to beat Nottingham Forest 3-1 on the road, with the team regaining their spot in top six. Brentford quickly returned to winning ways following a disappointing draw with Derby County, and they are surely capable of making life difficult for Watford at Vicarage Road. A close encounter is on the cards in the Championship derby, and we are tempted to put our money on draw.
