Match Facts

  1. Fulham have reached the Championship play-off final for the second time in the last three seasons, also beating Aston Villa 1-0 at Wembley in 2018 thanks to a Tom Cairney winner.
  2. This will be Brentford’s fourth play-off final and first since 2013 when in the third tier (1-2 defeat by Yeovil). Indeed, the Bees have lost each of their three play-off final matches and should they fail to gain promotion once more, they will have taken part in more unsuccessful play-off campaigns than any other side (currently 8, level with Sheff Utd).
  3. If promoted, next season would see Brentford become the 50th different team to play in the Premier League, and the 10th different side from London.
  4. Brentford last played in the top-flight in the 1946-47 season. If they're promoted it would be the second longest gap between top-flight campaigns for a club (74 years), after Bradford City (78 years between 1921-22 and 1999-00).
  5. Brentford are currently unbeaten in five games against Fulham (W3 D2) and have only suffered one defeat in the last 10 clashes between the sides (W6 D3).
  6. Fulham have lost as many games against Brentford in their last four meetings (3) as they did in the previous 12 matches beforehand (W5 D4 L3).
  7. During the regular league season, Brentford’s Saïd Benrahma was involved in 306 open play sequences which ended with his team having an attempt at goal, at least 57 more than any other player in the division.
  8. This will be just the second ever all London tie to grace the Championship play-off final, after Crystal Palace against West Ham in 2004 – the Eagles running out 1-0 winners thanks to a Neil Shipperley goal.
  9. Fulham have lost two of their three matches in all competitions at Wembley (beating Aston Villa in the 2018 play-off final), losing 0-2 to West Ham in the 1975 FA Cup final before a 1-3 defeat against Spurs in the Premier League.
  10. Among sides to have lost 100% of their games at Wembley, no team have played at the venue more often than Brentford (5, joint-most with Shrewsbury Town).
  11. Neeskens Kebano has scored five goals and at least once each in his last four appearances for Fulham, netting as many as he had over his previous 57 games in all competitions for the club.
  12. Saïd Benrahma has been directly involved in all three of Brentford's goals against Fulham in the Championship this season (one goal and two assists) – indeed, no player had a hand in more league goals against Fulham than Benrahma during the regular season.
  13. Both Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and Brentford hitman Ollie Watkins sit on 49 goals each for their current side, with both also enjoying 28 of their goals on home soil and 21 away.
