Brentford vs Leeds LIVE: Exclusive commentary and confirmed teams for huge Championship clash between

Brentford host Leeds in a huge Championship clash tonight that could have big repercussions in the promotion race.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side are on a dire run of form, having lost four of their last five games, and now find themselves four points behind leaders West Brom and only five points clear of seventh.

Leeds’ form has nosedived since Christmas

Meanwhile, Brentford are sitting comfortably in the play-off places, having won three of their last five games during their farewell season at Griffin Park.

The Bees’ BMW front three is the most potent attacking force in the Championship with Said Benrahma, Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins driving their promotion bid.

A win for the hosts will move them above Leeds. However, should the visitors win, the gap between first and second would shrink to just one point.

Confirmed teams

Brentford XI: Raya, Henry, Pinnock, Jeanvier, Dalsgaard, Norgaard, Jensen, DaSilva, Mbeumo, Benrahma, Watkins

Leeds XI: Casilla; Ayling, White, Cooper, Dallas; Phillips, Klich; Harrison, Costa, Hernandez; Bamford

Brentford vs Leeds: Head-to-head

Results in this fixture since Bielsa took over at Leeds have resulted in one win, one draw and one loss, with the most recent being a 1-0 home win at Elland Road in August.

Brentford’s win against Leeds in the Bielsa era came towards the end of last season in a time known to many as the ‘Bielsa burnout’ when goals from Neal Maupay and Sergi Canos in a 2-0 win made it tougher for Leeds to finish the season with automatic qualification.

Leeds ultimately had to settle for a third placed finish and suffered a play-off semi-final loss to Derby and the fans will be fearing their current run of form is painting a picture similar to their capitulation last term.
