Wycombe Wanderers

Championship newcomers Wycombe Wanderers will relish the opportunity to face Brentford, who were 15 minutes away from Premier League football last month. Joe Bryan's extra-time brace – with contrasting finishes – sunk Thomas Frank's side at Wembley and they face an early Carabao Cup test against a side they'll encounter later this term.

This is the first competitive H2H meeting between these two sides in eight-and-a-half years, back when both were in League One. Overall, the Bees hold a superior record – just one defeat in nine previous matches against Wycombe.

But with cup football, form and statistics are often irrelevant. It's more about who can step up to the plate on the day so who will emerge victorious? Read my match preview, for the correct score predictions and best betting tips ahead of this fixture.

Brentford vs Wycombe Wanderers Betting Tips

Wycombe's first ever Championship season begins with a home clash against Rotherham on September 12, but Brentford present a bigger challenge this weekend.

With some better finishing and composure at Wembley, Thomas Frank's men could be gearing up for their first top-flight campaign for over 70 years. However, they will be again among the favourites for promotion this coming season in what promises to be an intriguing campaign.

That's why this match will mean a lot for Wycombe: a barometer of how far they've come since silencing critics with their playoff promotion in July.

Gareth Ainsworth's side had just 24% possession and five shots over 90 minutes against Oxford United in their playoff final. Yet an early Anthony Stewart strike and Joe Jacobsen's penalty winner stunned a side who were previously unbeaten in five years against them.

It shows form isn't everything when it comes to cup competitions. Both sides were defeated on penalties in round one of this tournament last year, so one team will progress into R2 knowing they've already surpassed last year's frustrations.

Brentford vs Wycombe Wanderers Correct Score Predictions

Wycombe would love to spring an early surprise against Sunday's hosts, but I'm leaning towards a hard-fought Brentford victory here. Even without their top goalscorer Ollie Watkins (25) and Said Benrahma (17 goals, eight assists), they've got quality in depth and are able to cope.

Bryan Mbeumo has a point to prove, while Sergi Canos has impressed after recovering from a long-term knee injury earlier this summer.
