Brentford v Leeds United team news, odds, pre-match odds and TV details

Jesse Marsch’s side need at least a point to stand a chance of retaining their Premier League status.

Nerves will be on edge on the final day of the Premier League when relegation-threatened Leeds United travel to Brentford.

Before the season started, many viewers would have predicted the Bees would need the points – but Thomas Frank’s men shone in their first season as a Premier League club and secured their top-flight status weeks ago.

The same cannot be said for Leeds, who will head to London knowing they need to improve on Burnley’s result in their home game against Newcastle United to avoid relegation to the Championship.

An exciting afternoon awaits you!

What’s the team news from both sides?

Midfielder Frank Onyeka has recovered from an ankle injury and will take his place in the Brentford squad – but the Bees will be without Ethan Pinnock, Zanka and Saman Ghoddos.

Defender Robin Koch returns for Leeds and striker Patrick Bamford will be decided late.

Luke Ayling is out as he is serving a suspension following the red card he received in the recent Arsenal defeat.

What do the coaches say before the game?

Jesse Marsch, Leeds United manager: “We’re looking forward to this challenge – we know we have to do our best. I never came here thinking it would be easy. I knew we had to fight for everything. I’ll make sure we do that on Sunday.

“It would be easier if we knew we were trapped in the Premier League but there is one game we need to focus on. It makes us realize – a win gives us the best chance.

“I slept well last night because I still have faith in our group. (It is) better if we control our destiny, but that is not the case. (We have to) do everything we can to get the points.”

Brentford manager Thomas Frank: “I think that’s one of the reasons we love football, because it means so much to people. Brentford fans will be ready to celebrate and party on Sunday. Hopefully we can offer them one last game performance.

“The players are training very hard and I can’t imagine them taking their foot off the gas and not giving their best performance on Sunday. There can be a bit of freedom, but when you cross that line, you go into match mode and you want to win.”

Premier League managers are in danger on Sunday.

What are the latest odds?

Brentford are marginal favorites to win as The Bees are rated 11/8 to secure three points and relegate their struggling visitors.

Leeds are seeded 7/4 on SkyBet and the draw is 13/5.

Where is the game broadcast?

Yes, Sky Sports has selected the game for Sunday afternoon live coverage.

Their broadcast begins at 2:30pm BST, with all Premier League games marked with a 4pm kick-off.

Highlights will also be shown in the match of the day, which airs on BBC One on Sunday evenings at 10.30pm.

Scoreline Prediction

Leeds United know if they don’t improve on Burnley’s result they will be relegated.

With that in mind, the Whites are under pressure to make sure they take three points and do whatever it takes to avoid relegation.

Conversely, the worst that could happen to the Bees is that they drop a few places in the table, while the best scenario is a 10th place finish.

With Leeds setting the pace things will be hectic and there will certainly be goals – for both sides.
