The Sunday football program in the UK will not be as intense as the day before. But there are still some interesting meetings to take place. It is true that the most “invaluable” pair, from Leeds and Brentford, will play first. Here, the owners badly need glasses – but will they take them with the “bees” who are in great shape? The editors of the website publish their original forecast for the match on January 22, 2023.

Leeds are again not particularly confident in their fight for survival

Less than a year ago, the Peacocks took a controversial step – the management of the club fired the iconic coach, Bielsa, not remembering that he eventually introduced the project to the “elite” and spent a solid start of the season with him. But the risk of relegation to the Championship was too high – and it prevailed. The successor, Jesse Marsh, appears to have done so, retained his “registration permit”… Or was he just dragging things out for a year? After a good start, they managed only 2 wins in the Premier League, beating Liverpool and Bournemouth in a row. But then you can’t mark victory again for 5 rounds in a row. So far, the “white” bosses do not change the coach, they only buy newcomers, and for good money – will it help?

Brentford can also shine in European competitions

The Bees will play in the Premier League for the first time in 2021. Previously, they played at the level of the highest English football league back in the middle of the last century. But everyone noticed that it is an interesting, original project, and last season Thomas Frank and his wards managed to exceed all expectations. And most importantly, courage has not left him even now, in the next draw, which often turns out to be fatal for the former newcomer. Brentford already has 7 wins and 29 points from 19 games played – the European zone is just around the corner. Taking into account the fact that there have been no defeats for 7 rounds, and 4 of the last 5 rounds have been won, there is a good chance of fighting for at least 7th place.

Previous matches

Last season, Leeds turned out to be stronger than the newcomer to the Premier League: a draw and a win. But in September Brentford won 5-2 at home.
