Brentford have started the new Premier League season in excellent form, as they look to improve on their best ever showing in the competition last term. The Bees are unbeaten across their opening three matches this term, but they are still looking for a first home win of the campaign.
Brentford have drawn each of their last two in front of their own fans, which includes a 1-1 tie against Crystal Palace last weekend. However, the Bees still boast a dominant home record, as they have lost just once in their previous 17 at the Gtech Community Stadium. They have also scored at least once in each of their last 15 at home.
It has been a testing start to the new season for Bournemouth, as they are still looking for a first win. However, it is clear to see what Andoni Iraola is trying to do at the Vitality since arriving, as the club have attempted a higher average number of shots per game, and have averaged more possession than they did last term.
But, the Cherries have a miserable record in London, as they have lost 12 of their previous 15. Over that period, they have kept just one clean sheet and have allowed an average of 2.6 goals per game. Bournemouth have also lost each of their last four at Brentford, and are winless in their previous ten.
Brentford vs Bournemouth Prediction
All of the trends point to a Brentford victory this weekend. The Bees boast an excellent record in this fixture, and they have a stunning home record in the top-flight.
