Championship Play-off Final Predictions & Betting Tips: Brentford vs Fulham
Brentford vs Fulham betting tips and predictions for tonight’s Championship play-off final including three bets you could place and a team to win prediction. Which side will make it to the Premier League tonight?
Brentford are looking to climb into the Premier League for the first time in their history, whilst Fulham will be banking on their experience of the top flight to get them back into the Premier League at the first attempt. Scott Parker has galvanised his side after they went down last season and a key figure in that is their star striker Aleksander Mitrovic. He was the top scorer in the Championship this season, netting one more than Brentford’s Ollie Watkins.
Tonight’s play-off final kicks off at 7.45pm and it will be played behind closed doors at Wembley.

Brentford vs Fulham Prediction – Who will win?
Championship play-off finals are usually close matches and it would be no surprise to see this one going to extra time tonight, however, Fulham’s experience might just be enough to see them over the line here. Brentford had a chance at automatic promotion and blew it by losing their last two matches when the pressure was on.
Fulham have only lost one of their last nine matches and were in with a chance of automatic promotion themselves going into the final fixture of the season. They then got past Cardiff in the semi-finals, winning 2-0 away before going down to a 2-1 home defeat. Mitrovic missed both of those matches but he returns tonight and he will once again be their key man.
Ollie Watkins has been sensational for Brentford this season and they will be hoping he can do it on the big stage, but for my Brentford vs Fulham prediction I am edging towards the more experienced side and the best bet is Fulham to win promotion at odds of 11/8 with bet365.
Can Brentford get to the Premier League for the first time in their history?
It has been a huge rise to prominence for Brentford in recent seasons and tonight that reaches the peak, a chance to play in the Premier League next season. There is no question the Bees have been one of the standout teams in the Championship this season and probably deserve promotion to the top flight.
They have scored more goals than anybody else (80) during the regular season and Thomas Frank’s side managed to overturn a 1-0 deficit in the play-off semi-final against Swansea, eventually winning the second leg 3-1.
That was their last ever game at Griffin Park and it would be the dream scenario to open their brand new stadium with a Premier League fixture next season. Brentford have head to head form on their side, losing just one of the last nine meetings between these teams and in the season proper, they won 2-0 and 1-0 against their West London rivals. That will install more confidence into Frank’s side going into the Wembley showpiece tonight.
Ollie Watkins will be the man Fulham need to stop scoring tonight but if you do think he will find the net then you can get odds of 6/5 for him to score anytime in the Championship play-off final.
Brentford vs Fulham: Score Prediction – Brentford 1-2 Fulham
This will be another close play-off final but we’re betting on Fulham to just edge the tie in the 90 minutes. If Mitrovic is fit, as expected, he can be the difference between the two teams and Fulham will book their place in the Premier League for next season.
The odds for Fulham to beat Brentford 2-0 in the play-off final are 12/1 with bet365.
