Everything at stake in Championship Play-off Final

It’s a West London derby for the most expensive prize in football when Brentford meet Fulham in the Championship play-off final. Can the Bees secure their first appearance in the Premier League or will Fulham return after a couple of years away? Have a read of our preview here:

Can the Bees find one last sting

There is probably a very easy analogy based on Bees and honey here but let’s just jump in and start by saying this one should be good.

Two clubs that play football in the right way will meet at Wembley on Tuesday evening after getting through their tricky play-off semi-final matchups.

Brentford had to overturn a first-leg deficit to beat Swansea while Fulham were always in command against Cardiff to seal their place in the most valuable game in English and, probably, world football.

The prize for the promoted club is now well over £100 million and this has led to a couple of cagey promotion finals in recent years.

It is unlikely Brentford will serve up a poor show given their talented squad and easy-on-the-eye style.

Ollie Watkins has been immense again this year and has shown how important recruiting from the EFL can be. Exeter City have produced a number of excellent players in recent times but you’d struggle to find one better or more impactful than Watkins.

Said Benrahma has also been sensational and should easily make the jump to the Premier League.

This is the perfect time for Brentford to win promotion to the Premier League with a new stadium on the horizon and they are won win away from achieving that.

Fulham set for top-flight return

Scott Parker has done well with this Fulham team and they could and probably should have won automatic promotion.

The players they have at their disposal are too good for the Championship with Aleksandar Mitrovic the stand out man within the squad.

Other key players include Tom Cairney, an important cog in their previous promotion to the top-flight.

Joe Bryan and Anthony Knockaert are also excellent players who offer creativity and guile.

Brentford will be a tough test and many neutrals will be hoping to see the Bees achieve their first-ever promotion in what should be an evenly matched contest.

Brentford v Fulham betting tip

Both sides play well and although it is unlikely to be a high scoring match we still expect there to be plenty of goalmouth action. With that in mind, we are backing both teams to score at odds of 1.93 with 888sport here.
