Brentford and Swansea City are set to clash at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon in the EFL Championship Playoff Final, with the winner claiming the last available slot in the English Premier League next season.

Brentford needed to overcome a 1-0 first-leg deficit to Bournemouth and managed to do that with a 3-1 home win last weekend. Despite conceding early, they bounced back in the second half to progress through to their second-straight Playoff Final.

Swansea just needed a draw or better in the second leg of their tie with Barnsley, and they did enough to walk away with a 1-1 draw on the day and a 2-1 aggregate win against their less-fancied rivals.

Brentford have lost all of their nine playoff campaigns to date, yet they are -109.89 to claim promotion into the Premier League for the first time in their history. Meanwhile, Swansea ($4.60) are looking to get back into the top flight for the first time since they were relegated following the 2017/18 season.

Brentford vs Swansea match analysis

Brentford were on this exact same stage nine months ago when they went up against Fulham in the 2019/20 Championship Playoff Final. The Bees came up short on that occasion, but they find themselves with another chance to secure promotion. Led by Ivan Toney and his 31 goals, Brentford finished the season with four successive wins to fall four points shy of automatic promotion. Manager Thomas Frank will be hoping it is 10th time lucky for the Bees in the playoffs.


Swansea City will prove to be no easy beats. After falling at the penultimate hurdle at the conclusion of the 2019/20 season, they are back at London to prove their worth. With Andre Ayew in attack and Golden Glove winner Freddie Woodman in net, the Welsh side will be hard to break down in what is shaping to be a tight tussle.

Championship Playoff Final betting tips

Both teams to score – No

This year’s Championship Playoff Final is set to be a dour affair, in our opinion, with the Bees likely to come out on top with a clean sheet. Whether it is 1-0 or 2-0, it is a result Brentford will be happy with come the end of the 90 minutes at Wembley.

Both teams to score – No


First goalscorer: Ivan Toney

The Bees needed someone to fill the void left by Ollie Watkins’ departure to Aston Villa last summer, and up stepped Ivan Toney. With 31 goals to his name and 10 assists to his name, we expect the record-breaking Englishman to be the man who gets Brentford into the Premier League with the first goal of the Championship Playoff Final. He has scored the opener 10 times in the Championship this season.

Brentford look perfectly placed to finally get involved in the Premier League. We expect Ivan Toney to be the difference, as he has proved so many times this season, and perhaps it will be his sole goal that gets the result for Brentford in one of the biggest games on the football calendar.
