Still sturdy at the back despite their loss of form, Al Hain-Cole expects Bielsa's men to ensure goals are hard to come by when they face the Bees

Leeds United will be desperate for victory when they travel to Griffin Park to take on Brentford in Monday’s Premier League clash.

The Whites have fallen out of the automatic promotion spots after a run of three defeats in six league matches, leaving them adrift of second-placed Sheffield United on goal difference with only three games to play.

Latest odds

Without a win in nine away matches against this opposition, they are priced at even odds (2.00) to keep their hopes of a place in the top two alive by coming out on top here.

However, Thomas Frank’s team has lost just once in 10 league home matches, and can be backed at 11/4 (3.75) to emerge victorious in this one.

The sides shared a 1-1 draw when they met at Elland Road in October’s reverse encounter, and there are odds of 14/5 (3.80) available on this one also finishing up all square.

Team news

Liam Cooper is set to miss out due to a muscle injury, although Gaetano Berardi is expected to recover from a hamstring injury in time to take part.

Henrik Dalsgaard is suspended due to committing a professional foul against Millwall last time out, with Barry Marshall and Said Benrahma also ruled out due to long-term issues.

Defences on top

Although their form has taken a bit of nosedive recently, Marcelo Bielsa’s men have not lost the defensive prowess that has made them one of the most feared clubs in the division.

Indeed, they have conceded more than a single goal in just one of the last eight matches on the road – keeping a clean sheet in three of the most recent four away games.

Considering Brentford have scored just five times in their last eight matches, goalmouth action looks like being in short supply in a tense and tight affair on Monday.

Predictions

All in all, odds of 11/10 (2.10) are surely worth backing on under 2.5 goals being scored for the 11th meetings in 12 between these two teams.

All odds correct at time of publish. Please gamble responsibly.
