Many would have expected these two teams to be in opposite positions in the table at the start of the season. Brentford are flying high and have their sights set on a historic European place and a record league finish while Leicester have struggled this season and are very much in a relegation fight.

In just their second-ever Premier League season Thomas Frank’s Brentford are sitting in eighth place with twelve games left to play. While the Bees lost their 12-game unbeaten run against Everton, victory over Southampton in mid-week has them back on the right track. Leicester meanwhile looked to be moving clear of relegation struggles after a shock win against Tottenham but have since lost their last four league games. Can Brentford keep the good times rolling, or will Leicester prove they’re really too good to go down? The Brentford vs Leicester live stream should give us the answers.

Brentford vs Leicester preview

The fact that Brentford are just a point behind sixth-placed Liverpool is a testament to the incredible job Thomas Frank is doing. Having not lost a home game since September, they will be expecting three points against a Leicester team who look lost. Striker Ivan Toney is the third-highest scorer in the country with an impressive sixteen league goals, but he is not the only one playing well. Defenders Ethan Pinnock and Ben Mee have been more than solid at the heart of defense while Danish midfielder Mathias Jensen is enjoying a fine season with four goals and four assists. Brentford have a number of injuries to the likes of Keane Lewis-Potter and Mads Roerslev but it's midfielder VItaly Janelt whose absence is likely to be felt most. 

After back-to-back wins over Aston Villa and Tottenham in February, Brendan Rodgers looked to have solved Leicester’s woes but since then their form has been wretched. Four straight defeats with just one goal scored is not good enough. Leicester’s struggles in front of goal can be seen embodied in striker Jamie Vardy who has featured 26 times this season and scored just one goal. Creative midfielder James Maddison has shone this season but struggled with injuries as well. This difficulty in the attack has been paired with the second leakiest defense this season with keeper Danny Ward picking the ball out of his net 46 times so far this season. Midfielder Youri Tielemans and defender Jonny Evans may return for this match.

With Brentford on a roll and Leicester trying to stop the slump before the worst happens, the Brentford vs Leicester live stream has a lot riding on it.
