Brentford vs Newcastle United Preview

In search of European football for next season, Newcastle United travel to Brentford for their final game of the 2023-24 Premier League season. The English top division match is slated to take place on Sunday, 19th May, at the Brentford Community Stadium in London. Scroll down below to learn more about the Brentford vs Newcastle United prediction and betting tips.

The Magpies are currently engaged in a fierce battle with Tottenham Hotspur in the points table, with a spot in next season’s Europa League at stake. They currently rank sixth with 57 points, six points behind the fifth-placed Spurs. The Lilywhites’ 0-2 loss against Manchester City has presented a late opportunity for Newcastle to move above the London-based club in the table.

If the Magpies win their remaining two games (vs Manchester United and Brentford), they will match Spurs’ 63 points. In that case, they will ensure their European qualification, provided Spurs lose their last league game against Sheffield United. However, a win or a draw will suffice for Ange Postecoglou’s side, as reaching 64 points will secure their European journey. Since losing the away match at Crystal Palace, Eddie Howe’s men have shown significant improvement in their performance. In the last three games, they have clinched two big wins and one draw, adding 7 important points to their collection.

As far as Brentford is concerned, they have managed to stay alive in the Premier League heading into the final game week. In 37 games this season, they have secured 10 wins and 9 draws, while losing 18 times. With 39 points, the Bees are well above the relegation zone, holding the 16th spot in the league table. They will head into this fixture against Newcastle following a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Bournemouth away from home.

A string of injuries has piled misery on the Bees throughout the season. More than five players have been sidelined, with none expected to return before the end of the current Premier League season. Josh Dasilva is hopeful to rejoin the squad during the pre-season campaign after leaving the field back in February. Another English international, Ben Mee, also suffered an injury in Brentford’s 2-4 loss against West Ham United and will miss the remainder of the season.

The other two absentees for Thomas Frank’s side are Frank Onyeka and Nathan Collins, who are expected to return to action next year due to severe injuries. Frank’s role at Brentford has come under serious scrutiny following the club’s inconsistent journey in the English top flight. However, the West Londoners have faced significant unavailability issues this season.

Brentford predicted playing XI: Flekken; Collins, Ajer, Reguilon, Pinnock, Damsgaard, Janelt, Norgaard, Mbeumo, Lewis-Potter, and Toney

Newcastle United

For the Magpies, they are still assessing the injury situation of their talismanic goal scorer, Alexander Isak, who left the field feeling sick during the Brighton game last week. However, it is expected that the striker will feature in the club’s final Premier League game against Brentford. Kieran Trippier is also in contention to start after coming off the bench against Brighton. Callum Wilson remains doubtful as he is still recovering from hamstring issues. Sven Botman, Lewis Miley, Joe Willock, Matt Targett, and Jamaal Lascelles continue to be on the list of absentees.

Newcastle United predicted playing XI: Dubravka; Krafth, Trippier, Hall, Burnley, Guimaraes, Anderson, Longstaff; Almiron, Gordon, Isak
