Brentford v Norwich City prediction
Brentford narrowly missed promotion last season and is one of the favorites for promotion to the Premier League this time around. Losing key attackers Ollie Watkins and Said Benrahma to Aston Villa and West Ham United was offset by the form of forward Ivan Toney, who was in good shape.
However, the bees have been inconsistent and need some initial results to reach their full potential.
Norwich City was able to hold onto its stars despite relegation from the Premier League. Defenders Jamal Lewis and Ben Godfrey may have left for Newcastle United and Everton, but in Emiliano Buendia and Todd Cantwell the Canaries have two players who can play at the highest level.
A close match is expected. Daniel Farkes Norwich City is in good shape and could get past Brentford.
Forecast: Brentford 1-2 Norwich City
