Wolves vs Brentford: Top free betting tips

Wolves face Brentford on Saturday, 10 February in a Premier League match with high stakes for the away team given their precarious position in the league table. For Wolves, the match is another opportunity to keep their hopes of qualifying for European football alive following an impressive win at Chelsea last time out. Our Wolves vs Brentford prediction is for a narrow home win as Wolves are currently playing their best football of the season.

Match result prediction: Wolves to win

Any threat of relegation was swatted away months ago by Wolves and if it wasn't for several controversial VAR decisions they would potentially already be inside the top seven. Nevertheless, that is now their end goal for this season and their form of late suggests they could get there. They have won four of their last six Premier League matches and they scored four at Stamford Bridge last time out. Brentford, meanwhile, have lost seven of their last eight.

Anytime goalscorer prediction: Matheus Cunha

Last season, Matheus Cunha was praised for his general hold-up play and while that has remained as strong as ever this season, he has added more goals. He has nine goals and six assists to his name in the Premier League which is already far better than last season's return (two goals and zero assists). He's scored six in his last seven, including a hat-trick against Chelsea last weekend so comes into this one full of confidence.

Correct score prediction: Wolves 2-1 Brentford

Brentford's form is more than a worry, particularly as Ivan Toney's return was meant to turn their season around. They are currently just three points clear of the drop zone and another loss here would put them in serious danger, especially with Luton playing Sheffield United at home. Unfortunately for them, they are set to face one of the league's most in-form teams on Saturday.

Wolves vs Brentford team news

Wolves predicted lineup vs Brentford

Wolves have no fresh injury concerns coming into this one which means Gary O'Neil has no reason not to play the same team that dismantled Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend. In further good news, Boubacar Traore has returned from AFCON after Mali's elimination while Hwang Hee-Chan is also back in their ranks after South Korea were knocked out of the Asian Cup. Both men are likely to make the bench for the match on Saturday.

Sa – Semedo, Kilman, Dawson, Toti, Ait-Nouri – Lemina, Gomes – Neto, Sarabia, Cunha

Brentford predicted lineup vs Wolves

Thomas Frank doesn't have the luxury of a full squad like his opposite number with several important players missing. Aaron Hickey, Rico Henry, Bryan Mbuemo, Josh DaSilva and Kevin Schade are all missing due to injury while Yoane Wissa is still at AFCON for the third-place playoff and Franck Onyeka is still there with Nigeria preparing for the final. Neil Maupay will look to continue his own personal run of goalscoring form after scoring in his last five matches.

Flekken – Lewis-Potter, Collins, Pinnock, Mee, Reguilon – Janelt, Norgaard, Damsgaard – Maupay, Toney
