Analyzing the presented data, you can see that both Manchester United and Brentford have been playing differently lately.
Manchester United, historically one of the elite teams in the Premier League, has been going through a difficult period recently. Over the last seven matches they have lost four times, which is not typical for a top-level team. Their form has been relatively inconsistent, with 7 goals scored and 11 conceded. This suggests that the team is experiencing difficulties both in defense and attack. The recent defeat to Galatasaray in the Champions League hints that the team could be on the verge of relegation given the busy schedule of club competitions.
On the other hand, Brentford - a team that historically cannot be called strong - shows resilience, especially in the draw statistics. They have only one win in seven matches, but it is the draws and close goal difference that indicate they are difficult to beat. With an equal number of goals scored and conceded, they defend reliably.
When looking at factors such as possession, shots and expected goals, Manchester United look to be a dominant team, but their failure to capitalize on their opportunities is worrying. On the other hand, Brentford have a higher average number of goals per match, which indicates efficiency in front of goal.
The history of matches between these teams shows different results, with both teams winning. What stands out, however, is Brentford's 4-0 win in 2022. This suggests that Brentford may spring a surprise when you least expect it.
The latest results from Manchester United and Brentford suggest that the game will not be stingy on goals. With Manchester dominating possession and Brentford being effective in scoring goals, over 2.5 goals in the upcoming match seems a likely outcome. The defensive failures of both teams also confirm this forecast.
The odds of over 2.5 goals, given the tendencies and tactics of both teams, is a lucrative proposition for bettors. The 1.70 odds represent a balanced risk/reward scenario.
Despite Manchester United's historical advantage, Brentford have shown resilience in recent matches. Manchester United's inconsistent form and Brentford's ability to produce unexpected results make a draw a possibility. Odds of 4.00 on a draw make this an intriguing bet given the current momentum, especially with Manchester's busy schedule potentially impacting their play.
