Brentford must be licking their lips at the prospect of facing European Champions Chelsea, as they aim to emulate Swansea, who denied the Blues a place in the Capital One Cup final in midweek. The League One outfit have lost only one of their last 19 matches in all competitions and must fancy their chances of upsetting the odds on Sunday.
If they are to win this tie Chelsea will have to bounce back from that midweek disappointment. And what Chelsea backers will point to is one defeat in their last nine away matches in all competitions. However against a high-flying League One outfit on their own turf, do you really want to be taking 1/4 about Benitez’s side getting a victory. It is fair to say that on all known form Chelsea will win. But 1/4 on the road? I think not.
In opposing Chelsea it’s more gut instinct than anything else. You have to go back to 1947 to find a head-to-head between the sides, which to be fair is like a different world to today’s football. I will have a small stake on Brentford not to lose this one, and the bet is in the double chance market where you can get Brentford win or draw at 3/1 with Bet365.
