Brentford vs. Tottenham Hotspur Prediction and Preview May 19, 2023 – Posted in: Featured Articles – Tags:

When Tottenham Hotspur and Brentford square off on Saturday in a London derby, it will be their final time hosting in the Premier League this year.

The only thing left to play for is a Europa League spot, therefore it appears that Tottenham Hotspur’s season will end in a typically underwhelming fashion. For Spurs to have any hope of making it to the Europa League, they need to win both of their upcoming games.

Tottenham has had a string of defeats, losing three of their past five competitive games before last weekend’s 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa. The Lilywhites have had a difficult season, and they appear to be a squad that will require significant summer roster changes.

They are currently navigating a grim conclusion to what began as a bright season under former manager Antonio Conte. Their seven-game winning streak at the beginning of the season was a lie, and it has since turned into yet another season that will go into the cabinet full of average campaigns.

Brentford, their opponent on Saturday, has triumphed in three of their previous four Premier League games. Last Saturday, West Ham United was defeated 2-0 by Thomas Frank’s team courtesy of goals from Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa in the first half.

The Bees are now tenth in the standings, but with a victory on Saturday, they may pass Tottenham Hotspur by one point. Ivan Toney’s eight-month football suspension with immediate effect after confessing to 232 betting rule violations will be sorely missed by Brentford.

Despite this, Brentford could humiliate Spurs on Saturday because they are a well-drilled and well-coordinated club that can compete with any group in the nation.
