Our prediction for this EFL Cup match:
All eyes will be on the Hawthorns when West Bromwich Albion and Brentford face each other in the Carabao Cup last 32. The Baggies made a slow start to the new Premier League campaign, and they do not seem to be competitive at this level. WBA experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-2 loss to Everton, and, no doubt, they are eager to get back on course. Despite being sent off at the weekend, defender Kieran Gibba is illegible to play against Brentford.
The Bees, on the other hand, continue life without key strike Ollie Watkins, with doubts remaining over the future of Said Benrahma. Brentford kicked off their EFL Cup campaign with a 2-0 win over Southampton, and seeing that they impressed in the Championship victory over Huddersfield (3-0), we predict that the visitors are going to hold the Baggies to a draw.
