On Saturday afternoon, for the second consecutive season Brentford will play the final of the Championship Play Offs at Wembley ; last year the company failed, being defeated in the derby with Fulham . Now a new attempt in the challenge with the Swansea Welsh .
The precedent of the Aston Villa
From the parts of the Community they hope that the Bees will be able to follow the same path as Aston Villa: the Villans in fact in the 2017/18 season reached the final with Fulham , after having eliminated Middlesbrough in the semifinals , losing by measure access to the Premier League with the Londoners, a goal from Tom Cairney on an assist from Ryan Sessegnon decided the match .
The following year they returned to the appointment at Wembley and after having passed West Brom on penalties in the semifinals, they met Derby County in the final; goals from Anwar El Ghazi and John McGinn brought the Premier League to Birmingham.
The similarities with Brentford’s path give Bees fans hope : in common the defeat in the final of the previous season and also the opponent from which the defeat came: Fulham .
It will be an open and hard-fought challenge, the Bees can count not only on the similarities with the Aston Villa path, but on a truly first-rate attack, with at least six players who can alternate alongside top scorer Ivan Toney , with the 79 goals scored. the Brentford is training with the greatest number of goals scored in the season, more than I realized by promoted Norwich and Watford.
