The Premier League concludes this Sunday and we have you covered for Brentford vs Manchester City bet builder tips.

Brentford vs Manchester City Preview

England, Premier League, Sunday, May 28th, 16:30 (UK)

Brentford, along with Brighton, set the standard for how to run a football club.

Thomas Frank’s side continue to defy expectations, laying the gauntlet down for the rest of the division.

The Bees cannot finish lower than 9th this campaign, but could even sneak into Europe, if results go their way.

A hefty ban for their talisman Ivan Toney has threatened to overshadow what has been a successful campaign, with the England international out of action for eight months.

Saturday’s hosts have attackers more than willing to fill that void, as last weekend’s goalscorers Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa proved against Tottenham.

Manchester City are expected to rotate here. Then again, they were in midweek but seven of the players who started in the second leg of the Champions League semi-final played, so who knows with Pep Guardiola.

Within 13 days of this game, City will have played the FA Cup and Champions League finals though, so Pep may exercise more caution on Sunday.

This should see the likes of Rico Lewis, Kalvin Phillips, Phil Foden, Riyad Mahrez and Cole Palmer get the nod in the capital.

Brentford vs Manchester City Stats & Facts

  • Brentford are looking to complete their second ever league double over City on Sunday, the last was during the 1937-38 campaign

City drifted like a barge on Wednesday evening. Speculation grew that Scott Carson was getting handed his seasonal start in between the sticks. Stefan Ortega got the nod in the end, alongside plenty of big hitters in the end at the Amax.

Kevin De Bruyne played from the off, as did Erling Haaland, Ilkay Gundogan, Rodri and John Stones.

The Champions did not have enough to best Brighton though, held to a 1-1 draw in a fixture they ultimately lost the xG battle in.

The way that result unfolded, the shortening in odds pre-game and ultimately underwhelming result, has got me thinking that maybe it is worth taking a pro-Brentford angle and doing it early.

The Bee’s are big odds to complete an unlikely double, having already bested the Citizens at the Etihad courtesy of a late Ivan Toney winner.

Opting for a more cautious approach, I am siding with Brentford double chance here.

The Bees have won four of their last five games and boast an impressive record at home. Frank’s side have taken 34 points from the 54 available, getting a result in 88.88% of their home league fixtures.

Combining a home result with a Bryan Mbeumo goal boosts the odds nicely on bet365. We get plenty of choice over the goalscorer markets on 365 with choices over first, last or anytime goalscorer.

The choices are broad and range from first team regulars and leading candidates for both sides to fringe players with some lengthy odds.

We also have the choice of multi-scorers. With odds offered on players to score two more, or three or more goals in the game. We’re being a little more conservative here and just backing an anytime.

The aforementioned Toney is absent for the foreseeable future and Mbeumo looks set to fill the void.

The Cameroonian has had a direct hand in six goals in his last six league appearances, hitting a brace and registering an assist in his side’s last game away at Tottenham.

  • Brentford Double Chance
  • Bryan Mbeumo Anytime Goalscorer

Bet Builder odds: 6.50

What is a Bet Builder?

What is a bet builder? A bet builder is a special kind of accumulator bet where the selections revolve around one game. A typical acca features single selections on multiple games combined in one bet slip. If one selection goes wrong, the whole bet goes south. A bet builder works in very much the same way but all of the selections are placed on one match. If one of the selections doesn’t play out correctly, your bet is lost even if the other selections come through. These selections range from things like match outcome to the number of goals, corners and cards.
