Premier League – Attractive duel at the bottom of the table



Brentford and Watford will meet at 1:30 AM (India) in the opening on the 16th matchday of the Premier League. There is no doubt that sparks will be drawn and the situation is very even: the Bees will be local and are ranked 13th in the table, but the Hornets desperately need to win to get out of 17th place and not be harassed by the last three relegation places.

The match will be at the Brentford Community Stadium in the city of London and the locals will not be able to count on many players: Iván Toney is still away from the team for testing positive for Covid, Sergi Canos – his replacement on the last day against Leeds – reached the limit of yellow cards and it was confirmed that Kristoffer Ajer will not be available until January. Brentford comes from suffering a draw in the last play against those led by Marcelo Bielsa, but the balance was positive. Beyond a first half for oblivion, in the second stage they were able to deploy the football they need to stay in the Premier League this season. Anyway, some point in defense and his quick exit is remarkable.

Thomas Frank, Danish coach of Brentford, was positive despite winning only three of the last ten Premier matches and having lost to direct rivals for the low table fight, saying:

Watford is in trouble: not only did they come off a total loss to Manchester City, but they lost three games in a row. Although always scoring at least one goal. The reality is harsh. They have ten defeats, one more than the last in the table, and they are the most losing team in this Premier League. He is also close to being the most thrashed. Anyway, Claudio Ranieri, his coach, does not present complications for the game against Brentford and said:

“We are ready to fight”
