As part of the 1/16 final of the English League Cup, the players of Brentford and Oldham will come face to face. Which of the rivals will get the victory in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this match.
The players of "Brentford" worked a lot last season on their game, which allowed the team to reach the Premier League. For the" bees", this achievement turned out to be significant. Thomas Frank's team managed to prove itself in the Premier League, where after five rounds the team is in ninth place. "Bees" held one meeting in the framework of the English League Cup, during which they defeated Forest Green (3: 1).
As for the guest team, it plays in the Second League of England, where it shows football of terrible quality. The team played eight matches in the domestic championship, after which it ended up in last place, as it eventually scored four points. It is worth noting that the guests performed well in the English League Cup, as they managed to pass Tranmere Rovers (3: 2), as well as Accrington (1:0). It will be difficult to win in the upcoming match, given the fact that the guests will face a club from the Premier League, which performs very successfully.
