Analysis of Brentford
After 1 win, 1 draw and 3 losses, the home team is in the 19th position, havinf won 4 points so far. In the last match, they have lost in an away match against Charlton Athletic by (1‑0), after in the previous match they have lost (1‑0) an away match against Leeds United. In the last 10 home matches Brentford has won 3, tied 2 and lost 5. They haven’t been very strong defensively, since they have suffered goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition.
Brentford come to this match with low motivation after a 1-0 away loss to Charlton. The home team usually play in a 5-2-3, favoring a more leisurely playing style, attacking through the center aisle. The three arrows aimed at the “enemy” goal will be Canós, Marcondes and Watkins, and the player responsible for defining and conducting his team’s attacks is the Danish Jensen. It is possible that in the most central part of the field will play Jensen and Norgaard. Coach Thomas Frank should have all players available for this round.
Analysis of Derby County
The away team is currently in the 16th position of the league, with 6 points won, after 1 win, 3 draws and 1 loss. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Bristol City, by (1‑2). In the last match, they tied in a home match against West Bromwich Albion, by (1‑1). In their last match, for the League Cup, they got an away loss against Nottingham Forest by (3‑0). Their last away match for this competition ended in a draw by (2‑2) against Stoke City. In the last 10 away matches Derby County has won 6, tied 1 and lost 3. Defensive consistency hasn’t been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 4 of the last 5 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 4 of the last 5 matches for this competition.
Derby come to this match with low motivation after a 3-0 away defeat to Nottingham, in a game to count for the English League Cup. Contrary to the “enemy” of this round, the visiting team choose to play in a traditional 4-3-3, where the three most advanced players are Paterson, Bennett and Whittaker. By playing away from home, it is expected that Derby adopt a more defensive posture, with the aim of not being unbalanced. Coach Phillip Cocu should have all the players at his disposal.
