The Swans defeated Barnsley in a tightly contested semi-final tie, while Brentford scraped past Bournemouth despite losing the first leg. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Brentford v Swansea on TV and online.

Our prediction: Brentford v Swansea

Brentford have endured enough near misses to last a lifetime in recent seasons, and none more painful than losing their last two games of last season to miss out on automatic promotion by two points.

Championship top scorer Ivan Toney is likely to be plying his trade in the Premier League next season regardless of whether Brentford make it or not. He will be determined to lead his team up though.

The Bees are lethal goalscorers, though Swansea are shrewd operators at the back and can shut down opponents in crucial encounters.

Expect a tense, cagey affair as most play-off games have been this season, but the Bees boast an edge going forward that could finally launch them into the top flight.

Our prediction: Brentford 2-1 Swansea (8/1 at bet365)
